Upgrading from the RC is not recomended or supported.
Work arounds can be found on the net by Googling "upgrade win7 rc to full version ", there are lots of tutorials out there,but it is somewhat involved if are not that way inclined. It may well be quicker to start afresh.
If you have a full retail or OEM version boot the dvd select custom install and quick format the drive and continue the instalation.
If you have an upgrade then it depends if you have XP or Vista, in the case of XP install the basic setup don't worry about updates, insert the W7 dvd and reboot to W7 instalation as a clean install is required.
If you have Vista install it without updates, when finished you can run W7 install from the Vista interface as an inplace upgrade or boot from the dvd and run custom install, then select disk tools to quick format and start with a clean drive.
As far as I know the previous version needs to be activated, but don't quote me I'm not sure.
You can save your files and settings from your W7 RC by running the W7 Easy Transfer Wizard and restoring them when you are finished.
If you have a reasonably quick pc W7 clean install in about 20 minutes.
Jonmor68 is correct -- you cannot upgrade (in a recommended or supported fashion) from Windows 7 RC to Windows 7 RTM. A clean install is going to be most rewarding and successful.
