My dad just got a Win7 7100 disk because he works for a Microsoft partner. So I installed it all, but nowhere on the desktop does it say RC build. It just has 7100. Does that mean this was created before 7100 was selected as the RC?
Will the RC be different at all?

Hi, that's right. I also have the MSDN/TechNet version and it definately is the RC version, it's just it doesnt say it on the desktop next to the build number.

It does say it on the license agreement when you install windows and also if you go Command Prompt > Type "Winver" and click on the Microsoft Software License Terms it says its the Release Candidate in there!

It IS the RC build!
