Upgrade worked perfectly for me. It does a fresh install and then copies all settings and files from the old installation and also re-installs drivers. I did not burn it onto a DVD or use an dvd-image program. I just unpacked all files from the ISO to a temp folder on the HDD with 7-Zip and installed from there.

But when I upgraded it did not copy the Catalyst 9.2 driver for Vista but used the WDDM 1.1 beta driver instead as I mentioned above. The driver date is from march, so I guess it's based on fresh driver.

But as it's still beta OS you can do a new install too if you like, just up to your preference.

Note: It asks you for the key again so have your beta key ready.
