Windows Vista Pre-RC1 Build Available Now

    August 29, 2006

Microsoft has put up Windows Vista Build 5536, the pre-RC1 build, available for download. To install it, you’ll need a valid product key, like from Vista Beta 2.

The 2.6 gigabyte file is only available for the first 100,000 downloaders, and is getting enough coverage that time is running out. Get the file now.

If anyone at Microsoft can answer: Can those who download and install Pre-RC1 upgrade to RC1 and then Vista, or will they have to clean install? Obviously, there is a big difference.
