Unable to delete Vista RC2 installation on another hard drive

#1
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!
