Tried to to an upgrade from within beta2 but it said upgrade was disabled -
only supports upgrade from Vista(!) or XP SP2 so I have a fully working
Beta2 with Cisco Vpn, Office 2K7, NOD32, VNC, Firefox but no way of going to
RC2 without wiping and starting again and maybe having exactly the same
The only other thing that has come to mind since I started this process is I
use an unusual internal subnet - Due to some historical reasons (corp vpn
issues) I'm using 169.254.1.x as my internal IP address range - yes thats
right I'm using the APIPA range instead of 192.168 or 172.16 or 10. - this
has never been an issue so far..... (-;
thanks everyone for their comments.
