    Unable to delete Vista RC2 installation on another hard drive

    Hello-

    I just upgraded to RTM on my main drive. I'd like to delete the folders for
    a Vista RC2 installation that's on another drive. I've (temporarily) turned
    off UAC, given ownership of the folder to the Administrators group (which my
    account is a member of) and given the Admin group Full Control. I still get
    a "You need permission to perform this action" dialog when I attempt to
    delete.

    Can someone please tell me what I need to do? Thanks much!!

    Right-click Computer, Manage, Disk Management then right-click on the drive
    and delete it, repartition and format it.

    I realized that I needed UAC turned on in order to confirm the process to
    delete it!
