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.
Ok, up and running on my lappy no problem. If I do an upgrade from 7000 on my other machine you said it copies all settings and files, will I need to re install my programs?
