  • No,  In the RC, the default option for Server Setup is going to be "New Installation."

  • The good news though is that in the email I received, the Windows Home Server Team have confirmed that you will be able to upgrade from the RC to the RTM version, so hopefully only one more re-install!! Actual wording is:

     

    At this point we *can* confidently say that we will support upgrading from the RC to the RTM version.

  • While you may be able to upgrade from RC1 to the final version, I can say that I most certainly won't be doing so. I would never upgrade from beta to final software without removing the beta as completely as I could first.

  • There may be a RC2 also, so RC1>RC2>RTM may be the sequence.

    Probably not good idea.

    Every Upgrade experience make know and see any old ( any time disturbing also!) TOMBSTONE or WASTE.....

    NEW installation is the only good way in my mind!!

    And WHS installation is the best automated installation I see since long time!!!!!
