Wow you know your site is awesome when M$ has people posting in the forums. Jessica are you a member of one of those support groups or whatever that M$ pays to go around the web and help people in random forums?

Windows 7 RC is build 7100 not 7000. Build 700 is beta. Also, be sure that when you install Windows 7 RC Build 7100 that you use a product key for that build and not the beta build key.

haha wow, never thought I would get a post like that...

It was really weird because they offered it on MSDN-AA right when RC1 came out, so I thought it was the RC version... Oh well I got it installed last night so its all bueno now :)

My beta key works in Build 7201 (which I believe to be the RC2) so I think I'm in the green.

Got the same build, cant hope for something else :3
