As you may have heard, we recently released Windows 7 Beta. We’re very excited about this release and want to make sure you know how we’re going to support Windows 7 Beta with Windows Update and Microsoft Update. The first thing we want to mention is that it is a Beta release. So, please make sure you take a backup of your data before migrating to safely preview Windows 7 Beta. You should also read the release notes before installing Windows 7 Beta.
We will offer updates for Windows 7 Beta and updated drivers through Windows Update and Microsoft Update. We strongly recommend that you keep your Windows 7 Beta computers up-to-date, because this will ensure you have the best experience previewing Windows 7 Beta. Here are some tips for keeping your Windows 7 Beta computers up to date:
1. Before you logon for the first time, you’ll see the prompt to “Set Up Windows.” Make sure you select the recommended settings for Windows, so Important and Recommended updates are installed automatically.
2. Go to the following Web site to configure Microsoft Update, http://beta.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate. When you check for updates using Microsoft Update, you get the same updates available through Windows Update but you also get updates for other Microsoft software.
