    Update to RTM?

    Why still use the RC anyway?

    now downloading pro, but still hoping to extend it, loads of software, don`t have where to unload data.
    and it will be headache, if i upgrade i guess my apps gone.
    if i don't solve it , i`ll do fresh install then, still 12 days left ;]

    How big is your hard drive ? If it is big enough you can shrink your existing partition and create a new one to store your data on. Then when you re-install on your existing system partition you'll at least have your data - you're stuck with reinstalling your programs anyway because even though you can nearly always upgrade - even if you need some tricks - you should never upgrade any Windows systems as they end up running like a dead dog.

    Why wouldn't you use Ultimate ? The ei.cfg removal tool on these forums allows you to make the DVD so that you can choose which version to install.

    There is a tutorial on how to upgrade the RC on these forums but I never upgrade anymore - every experience has resulted in a slow buggy system with conflicts.

    The solution is simple: Update to RTM

    As suggested by prior posters, you only have one option left, and that is to install windows 7 rtm, either via clean install or via an upgrade procedure, as outlined in the following article in MDL:

    Good luck....

    PS

    By the way - congrats to lightscribe for what I believe must rank as one of the longest posts in history.
