    Not sure i understand why you guys are "building up" WDP with apps and cloning it. It will expire and chances are you will not be able to use it later on.

    Good answer but really?

    I'd do everything if someone pay me a little ... you know to do testings.

    I do a clean install every three months so for me it isnt a problem. Who knows maybe MS will let it be upgraded

    Well, when it comes out (the beta), I'll give it a shot (upgrading) but, right now, I doubt it will be successful.

    You are upgrading when you are using dual boot? Perhaps (and it's only perhaps) it will detect Windows 7 and upgrade that, not Windows 8.

    Try it and give me a red card back when you are able to.

    Aem, I meant upgrading the current Win8 8102, though, indeed, in a dual-boot environment (I still have a source for another pre-beta version but we aren't quite connecting yet).

    I'll never pull out a red card on you, aem, you play cleanly.
