  1. You dont need anything except to meet windows 7 requirements.
  2. You can do a fresh install of the Windows 7 RC. I just did it on a partition of the HD on my main computer. I also did it on my backup computer.

    Cool!!! Always like to make sure about these thins. Much appreciated.
  6. You will have to burn an ISO Windows 7 RC DVD on a different computer first, then install it like any other OS. It will stop working in March of 2010, so you will have to buy the full OS then and do a complete reinstall then.

    Thank you for that!! I guess I will stick with XP until then, Might as well. ITS still good for several years yet. And next year I will get the Windows 7 O.S. Hope its not tooo overpriced!
  8. It is possible to upgrade from Windows 7 Beta to Windows 7 RC.
    In the same manner we will supposedly be able to upgrade RC to Final.

    http://www.lockergnome.com/blade/2009/04/08/windows-7-upgrade-beta-to-rc-to-rtm-milestone/

    It in fact works for Beta to RC.
    Edit: minclient for W7 RC x64 is 7077 not 7100

    Also we will be able to migrate from XP to Windows 7 final. You can find the information at MSDN or Microsoft Technet. As the Final release date gets closer the more widely spread the info. will be.

    Edit again: Here is the XP to Windows 7 how to.
