    If anyone that installs this.....could you please let me know if its possible to uninstall.

    I don't want to reload an old image when the rtm comes out. I can't install it, if I can't remove it, to go rtm when it comes out.

    Hello,
    one of the tests that is reccomended to ensure the beta works properly is to uninstall it. so yes you can uninstall it.

    will check the link again when i get home

    I had to replace my motherboard recently and don't know if the imaging apps I have will work with it. I haven't formatted since about may or june of 07 when I got Vista Business. I can't take a chance with not being able to restore an image.

    /end off topic :p
