Psssh.

Downloading my 2nd copy from my MSDN right now to slap on my HTPC.

Going 32-bit as x64 causes some issues with a couple of codecs :)

Is this true..

If you've already taken the plunge with the Windows 7 Beta, chances are you don't really want to set everything up all over again when you install Windows 7 RC. Unfortunately for you, Microsoft recommends a fresh install over an upgrade, and in fact, if you want to upgrade rather than install from scratch, you'll need to perform a simple hack, as described in this post from Life Rocks 2.0 covering how to upgrade from Windows 7 Beta to the Windows 7 RC. Likewise, you'll have to perform an in-kind upgrade, meaning you can't go from 32-bit Vista to a 64-bit Windows 7 install without doing a clean install.


I have to do a little hack?

you never upgrade a windows os. Always do a clean install. I rather enjoy installing os's for some reason, so I look forward to it ..

I was not asking for opioion, and frankly I used to like to do clean installs too, now I enjoy how I have mine setup and don't want to start over.

Got my movies working correctly in MC :D

For some reason, some will show up correctly in MCE but not in Media Player :(

Oh well.

does win7 freeze for people at times, does it randomly, could be installing something, or using a program
