Windows 7 Release Candidate Installs to Expire Soon
I am not too sure that the number of people still running the Windows 7 RC is that high, but if you happen to be, take note. On February 15th, RC installs will begin receiving messages that remind the user that as of March 1st, the PC will begin its bi-hourly automatic shutdown. That's right... bi-hourly. These shutdowns will continue from that point straight through until June 1st.

Upgrading is still possible, although not always advised. But since you're probably already doing a backup before reinstalling your computer this might be a plausible option. It comes from the Windows 7 engineering blog. I have used this step in the past to upgrade alpha and beta build to higher versions and it works (not always flawless). I have even upgraded Ultimate to Enterprise and the other way around using similar workarounds. Not supported does not always mean impossible :)
