Default How to Upgrade the Windows 7 RC to RTM

The final version of Windows 7 was released yesterday for MS Technet subscribers, but you can’t upgrade directly from a pre-release version—at least, not without a quick and easy workaround, and we’ve got you covered.

Windows 7 checks whether or not the current version you are running is a pre-release copy, and prevents you from upgrading further. The solution is to edit a file inside the Windows 7 DVD—which you’ll have to extract to the hard drive to proceed.

Same workaround for upgrading Beta to RC, copy contents of install DVD to local HDD, edit cversion.ini under "sources" subfolder, change the MinClient value to 7000.0.

Quote:
The Windows 7 beta or RC releases were Ultimate edition, so you’ll only be able to upgrade to the RTM (final) if you are installing Ultimate Edition.
