Windows 7 Beta and the Upgrade to Release Candidate

June 1, 2009

Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans received notice that Microsoft is emailing users who have Windows 7 Beta from the official download site. The emails explain the expiration date of the Windows 7 Beta and links to downloads of the release candidate (RC). The expiration date of Windows 7 Beta is August 1, 2009; however today, June 1, Windows 7 Beta will shut-down every two hours.

Windows 7 Release candidate is available for download and, from our experience in a lab environment, is greatly improved over its predecessor, Beta, which expires on August 1, 2009. The next sixty days are a great time to rebuild your Beta PC with the RC of Windows 7. Onsite highly recommends the RC, especially with a clean installation. Please recall clean installations require reinstallation of not only your programs, but also a clean install requires a backup and a restore of your data from the Beta PC to the RC PC.

If you have questions or require help installing the RC of Windows 7, visit the following TechNet site at Microsoft http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/category/w7itp or contact Onsite. Onsite Computer believes a clean install of Windows 7 RC justifies the time and effort required for the update.
