    Forgive what I'm sure amounts to a dumb question:

    I've grown too frustrated with Vista on my MBP and I'd like to upgrade to Win 7 RC. Can I simply boot into my Vista Boot Camp and install from there or do I need to remove the partition through Boot Camp and start all over?

    I'd do the latter, but many of the programs I currently have on Windows I don't currently have to reinstall because I'm in Afghanistan.

    Thanks for the help.

    If upgrading is a priority, then you shouldn't install the RC of Windows 7. Wait until Oct. 22nd and get the final version. You won't be able to upgrade from the RC to the Final version of Windows 7, and in March, you'll start getting bi-hourly shut downs and in June, it will expire.

    But yes, you should be able to just upgrade as you would on a normal PC from Vista.
