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?

Nope, it copies everything automatically. It just doesn't install the new system files over the old installation, instead doing it reverse. Worked really well for me, but is still beta so experience might differ.

Dont think so. Installed win7 7057 x64 last night and haven't encountered any issues yet. It's running quite smooth and WMC works very well with my TV card. All drivers installed without issue. Havent tried any games yet.

btw, its x64 Athlon 4000/nforce4 on this computer.
