I can't help people I can't understand.
well, i wanna say that i followed the same process as u have mentioned. but it still shows me the expiry date as before. so i want to know that which key i should put when it asks me for product key because i've only one key which i used during the time of RC version installation. or do i need to make any other chnages !
the version i am using is windows 7 Ultimate RC build 7227. so i guess, step-3 is not required to follow in my case.
guys...plz help me. any kind of help will be appreciated.
No man, i dont own a legal copy of windows 7. so i dont have the actual key of it. now can u plz tel me where to find the actual key of it because keys available on the interent are not working as i had tried them on this installed RC version.
plz tell me what to do ?
and thk u for ur help.
If you can't, the old workaround was to install it as a trial, then "upgrade" it to the final version. If you had a legit XP or Vista license, that's a reasonable route to take.
Everything works fine!!
From Win 7 RC to Win 7 Ultimate Retail...
If you have installed any laguage pack...you will be obligate to install the version in English and after the complete installation, add the pack again...

Thanks for this tutorial
This is absolutely fantastic! I haven't tried it yet, but have 3 machines to upgrade before 3/1. This will save my weekend.
I genuflect multiple times in your general direction!
but just wondering, did i really need to change the MinClient into 7077.0 , if i have a full Windows 7 Ultimate DVD, to actually upgrade from RC 7100 to final retail version. I didn't try it...so i'm not sure......Anyways thanks again!!
