If you mean buy the full retail version and then do an upgrade of RC1-
No. RC1 was the Ultimate Version.

You can use "Windows Easy Transfer" to save your settings in RC1
and then transfer them back to your retail version of Home Premium.

Re: Vista RC1 to boxed version
If you're only worried about saving your documents then just do a clean
install over the RC1 (DONT format!). It will back up all of your documents to
C:\windows.old so you can access them afterwards.

As for system settings as well Windows Easy Transfer is as good as it gets.
