I want to install Windows 7 RC. I know about the time bomb in June of 2010, where it will cease to work, and that a few months before that it will shut down every two hours.
If I install Windows 7 RC, will I be able to upgrade it to a non-time bombed version? If I pre-order the RTM, will I need to wipe clean and do a fresh install when it is released?
I installed Windows 7 RTM on my wife's laptop, upgrading from Vista Ultimate x64 with no problems. Had to uninstall Daemon Tools & ATI Catalyst Control Center first though. I decided not to install the RC first, since I have access to the Technet download on Aug 6.
