There will be some minor tweaks and performance enhancements but nothing big will be changed. Think of it as the before to last build. Release Candidate is the last step before they RTM.

Is your USB formatted as NTFS? Also make sure you are running command prompt as Admin.

Edit: Put MBRwiz.exe in C: and type cd\\ in command prompt. Then follow the rest of instructions

actually all i had to do was change the "2" to "1" on the last option because the parameter was only a 0 or 1
