I tried to upgrade my win7 7068 install to build 7100 on friday; this failed with a message saying it cannot upgrade "this pre-release version of Windows 7". Does it upgrade build 7077 or will I have to backup and reinstall ? It's annoying if it won't upgrade 7077 either because I was planning to upgrade whenever a new build came out, but i decided to skip 7077 after two bad downloads.

Check this :)

“Here’s what you can do to bypass the check for pre-release upgrade if you really really need to:

- Download the ISO as you did previously and burn the ISO to a DVD.
- Copy the whole image to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the pre-release build).
- Browse to the sources directory.
- Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
- Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7100 to 7000 (see picture).
- Save the file in place with the same name.
- Run setup like you would normally from this modified copy of the image and the version check will be bypassed.”

Well you can try this.

Upgrade to 7077 and then to 7100, or reinstall completly with only 7100 from DVD.

Altough you can do tricks mentioned above, I suggest you doing a clean installation, I always install each build clean.

Upgrading to 7077 won't make any difference if the number in cversion.ini is greater than 7077, which 7100 is.

The cversion.ini exactly says 7077 as minimum client build.

I did an upgrade install from 7068 to 7100 by editing the min version to 7068 and it's worked perfectly for me.

1. Download the ISO as you did previously and burn the ISO to a DVD.
2. Copy the whole image to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the pre-release build).
3. Browse to the sources directory.
4. Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
5. Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build. For example, change 7100 to 7000 (pictured below).
6. Save the file in place with the same name.
7. Run setup like you would normally from this modified copy of the image and the version check will be bypassed.
