thanks but that link refers to a ugrade from 98 or xp to rc1.
i upgraded from rc1 to rc2 and rc2 screwed my rc1 install up that
i had been running for almost a month.
even a roll back to rc1 didn't work so neither vista installs would
work after the rc2 install got done screwing everything up.
tried a repair install also and nothing.
so instead of wiping the drive and loading vista rc1 again
i just loaded my xp pro back on there.
rc2 install is hosed from rc1 install that was the point of the post.
this system worked and installed vista rc1 fine rc2 install is borked.
