Microsoft said that a clean install of Windows 7 RC above the beta is the best option.

^^ I did. By default Windows 7 RC will not allow you to upgrade from Beta build as Microsoft has blocked it but there is a hack to enable the upgrade:

How to Upgrade from Windows 7 Beta to RC Build?


Thanks! :)

Well I updated from 7000 to RC, it works fine, but it took a very long time to update (more than 1 hour at least, with long time black screen).

Dont understand why ms dont stop this version when they release W7, but i am not complaining :)
