Well, that's pretty much a clean install if you're dropping the tables, isn't it?  I have content...lots. Tried running update, failed because the node table is missing a field called disabled. Had alpha2alpha, which won't work. Might try head2head next.

I did the upgrade today. I just untarred the beta1 tarball in the dir,
dropped all the tables from alpha7 and started a fresh install. Of
course settings.php has to be rewritten as well. This way it

Never tried the head2head. In previous alpha releases I tried to do a
drush update and it failed. So I reverted to this kludge of dropping
tables and do a re-install.
