  • Upgrading from W7 Beta to RC1 without reformatting.

    Hi folks,

    Apparently MS advice is to do a clean install, but has anyone tried the little tweak (I am refraining myself from using the word Hack in case it gets missread ) of editing the cversion.ini file: http://maketecheasier.com/upgrade-wi...isk/2009/05/08
    If so have you experienced any oddities as warned?

    Thanks

    but i might try it..

      I just did this upgrade yesterday. Haven't noticed any problems with it. MS engineering team posted this workaround as well.

      Instead of burning/mounting the ISO I just extracted the files to a folder since I didn't want to bother installing a ISO mounting program.

      PS: I am running 64bit version
      Dual-boot /w XP
