Default quick question

For those who have preorded win 7 has anyone received shipment notification? For example if you order from newegg.com ? Would they ship it today where it show up on the 22nd? (three day shipping) Or will it be sent on the 22nd?

yes, but you have to edit one file on the dvd to remove restriction.

in the iso, sources folder there is a file called cversion.ini

content of the file in RTM version looks like this

[HostBuild]
MinClient=7233.0
MinServer=7100.0

only part that actually matters is MinClient=7233.0, this basically means that any build older then 7233 can't perform upgrade.

if you have windows 7 RC, then your build is 7100. change that line from 7233 to 7100, and it will allow you to perform an upgrade

give it a shot, see how it goes.
