Upgrading Windows 7 Release candidate RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few months back - before Windows 7 came out I built myself a new machine and put Windows 7 Release candidate on it. Of course now I need to replace the release Candidate with the real thing - accordingly I have obtained Windows 7 Home premium OEM for this purpose. My question is this can I use the OEM version to upgrade the release candidate (I have programs and data there I would like to preserve) - or do I have to got the long way about it and back everything up ie:- format the drive etc....
