    Hey guys. Anyone running the Windows 7 beta will be getting problems starting July 1st. Your computer will shut down every 2 hours. To avoid this problem you have to download the RC and install that. No biggie right? Well they want you to wipe your drive and start from scratch... my ass. So heres a way you can upgrade the beta to RC without reinstalling... just doing a simple windows upgrade.
    Code:

    Just google the link for the windows RC or get it off demonoid like i did

    They told you that at sign-up for the beta. Did you really think you were getting a free Microsoft OS?

    Why you're using beta versions, why you don't use Vista, until the final version be available. i don't like to use beta versions of any software, it's a version for testing.

    I use Windows XP SP3 Pro, updated until this month, and with some software like win system optimizer, KIS2009, antispyware (webroot) ... etc, and i use anything without any problems. perfect 100%.

    So that you'll be forced to buy an original copy once windows 7 is out. And it will start on March 2010

    Ok here's the deal. The first BETA versions not RC is going to work like OP said. RC on the other hand will work until 1. June 2010, in March 2010 they will shutdown every 2 hours to remind you of getting the real version. You will be warned 2 weeks before this starts.

    Actually I am planning on moving back t XP before having all Vistas in the market all those just suck! so I guess we need Linux to improve faster so we all can forget the big W.
