Q. Can I upgrade from the Windows 7 SP1 beta to the Windows 7 SP1 release candidate?

A. No, you need to uninstall the beta of SP1 from Windows 7 (or from Windows Server 2008 R2) using the Control Panel. Go to Programs and Features, Installed Updates, Service Pack for Microsoft Windows, and uninstall the beta before installing the release candidate. The same process will be required when moving from the release candidate to the RTM of SP1.
