ok i got this installed and i used the key from beta 2 but in the lower right hand side it says Windows Vista ™ Beta 2 Evaluation copy. Build 5384

so i am thinking that this is not rc1
maybe this should have been tested before it was posted here

thanks anyway

I'm sorry guys about this. You can download the preRC1 in less than 1 hour. I just did. Next time I'm gonna test it out before posting. preRC1 is only available in 32 bit.

Sorry :(

---link removed from Microsoft.com---

I think MS was updating that page for RC1 and that's why it was saying Windows Vista RC1 Page.
Microsoft removed the page, so you have to use the other link. Sorry about the big confusion.

You can still get the Prerelease version here that butch123 provided.
Windows Vista PreRC1

It needs to say preRC1 in the bottom right corner to be preRC1.

I relinked the one I had with butch. I think I posted it twice.

I might load it on a server later, since I did turn people on to Microsoft's fake Windows Vista RC1 page. I can't believe Microsoft made a page like that and then remove it one day before the preRC1 trail was over.

Let me try to clarifiy...Microsoft had released 2 builds within one day of each other. One to the public, 100,000 people and the other to the Beta testers which is build 5552 so from what I can see here it seems that some people had gotten the links mixed up but the build released to the public is 5536 pre-Beta RC1 and as for RC1 it should be released around Sept.7th or thereabouts.....

No, you're even confused! Microsoft had a page saying Windows Vista RC1 which the downloads were really the beta 2(old version).
