Re: Fastest?Easiest Win 7 Upgrade from Win RC (have XP and Vista Upgrade DVD)
I hope to hell B, C and E aren't correct. I have the Win 7 RC installed on this computer and the Home Premium Upgrade disc is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. I want to be able to do a clean install of the Win 7 disc and I'm hoping I can boot up with the cd then insert my XP disc to prove I have it. I hope I don't have to wipe the drive, install XP, get it validated then install Win 7. It would just be more of a pain in the ass to have to do it that way.
Whatever you do though, after Windows 7 gets installed the first time make a backup image of your drive with the built in tools in Windows 7 that way when you have to reinstall you can just reimage the drive and have Windows 7 back up and running quickly.
