Can I update my iOS 5 beta iPhone on another computer without losing everything?

I'm currently running an old beta version of iOS 5 and it's really starting to act up (beta software obviously I know) and I'm without my iMac that it's synced to. Is it possible to update it to the latest beta on the current Windows 7 computer that I'm using without losing everything?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Nevermind, I forgot you can't update iOS 5 beta's anyway, you have to do a restore and I don't have a backup etc.

If you restore from backup, i believe you can. But since it is a beta, i doubt it will run without problems using a backup...

Don't come complaining when apple locks the old beta your device is using.
