Reminder: Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 Ready to Be Killed Off on June 1, 2009

“On June 1, 2009, the PC you’re using to test the Beta Build 7000 will begin shutting down every two hours. Rebuild your test PC with a non-expired version of Windows 7, such as the RC or Windows Vista. This will be a clean installation, so be ready to reinstall your programs and data.

If you are running Windows 7 Beta Build 7000 you’ll need to back up your data (preferably on an external device) and then do a clean install of the Windows 7 Release Candidate. After installing Windows 7, you will need to reinstall applications and restore your files.

There’s another expiration date you need to keep in mind: Windows 7 RC will expire on June 1, 2010, and you’ll need to either upgrade to the final release of Windows 7 or a prior version of Windows before then.”
