upgrading from 7850 doesnt work ;/ it says it cannot upgrade from windows 7 enterprise to windows server 2008, what is weird
Not so weird, apparently.
While 7850 is based on Windows 7 SP1 code, 7955 is not; I have noticed references throughout this build to Windows Server 2008 (pre-R2), the last x32-based server OS that Microsoft shipped. (Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Home Server 2011 are both x64-only, which eliminates that OS as the code-branch source.)
Further, Microsoft has never supported (or allowed) crossgrading from a desktop/workstation OS to a server OS.
Lastly, it's Way Too Early in the build/test process to be testing upgrades.

Theres a key that activates it without any need for cracks
Having troubles getting red pill to work though.
As said, VirtualBox has issues with the addons. makes Windows 8 slow graphics wise =/
Cant wait for 64-bit release.That wil be when I use it as a main OS
i tried both redpill v1 and v2. v1 works fine for me with aero while v2 doesn't support aero. i did notice with stock, v1 and v2 slc windows update doesn't work. when you try to go into device manager explorer crashes. flash in chrome has no audio. it works on ie though.
