Upgrade Beta 2 > RC1 ?


B

Brian Wescombe

I've got XP installed on one hard drive, with Vista Beta 2 installed on a
separate physical drive. XP is the Primary boot drive. Will it be safe to do
an Upgrade install of RC1 from within Beta 2 without screwing my XP
installation?

Thanks in advance

I believe your install will upgrade ok, as the upgrade should pick up the
partition that Vista is installed on. I can do some checking to confirm.

I just upgraded from Beta 2 successfully. Just insert the DVD you've just
made (hopefully) whilst signed in to your Vista partition. You'll be given
the option to upgrade.
It will throw out any incompatible drivers, which should be re-installable.
It also wiped my newsgroup subscriptions from Windows Mail and removed
password from my email accounts.
Haven't found anything else yet to moan about....looks good though.
