SQL Server 2005 Tidbit 013

Q: How do I upgrade SQL 2005 beta to the Full SQL 2005?
A: There will not be a setup-based upgrade from preRTM to RTM. You will need to un install the preRTM and then install RTM. The un install will not remove your user databases. Once you reinstall you can connect those databases to the new install. They will automatically upgrade when they’re installed. One word of caution: it’s best to move between the same editions (i.e. Beta -> Developer, Standard -> Standard, etc).
