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.
So how would I go by doing this? Just copy the files from the CD to my HD and edit the files, then reburn it? Or can I install it from the HD? How about a thumbdrive?

if you are doing an upgrade, you don't have to reburn, you can run it from the hdd.
