    do you know why I have to perform clean install of RC2 5744 and Upgrade is
    not available ? (dimmed)
    Of course I have started Setup from Vista Pre-RC1 Build 5536 (and tried boot
    from setup DVD either, just for sure)
    but no luck to have Upgrade button active.

    thanks for suggestions

    I believe older versions of Vista, like yours, are not eligible for
    upgrading to version 5744. However, have you tried installing from within
    the Vista environment? Later versions allowed you to upgrade if you started
    the DVD from within the Vista environment. You've probably tried that
    scenario already. If so, and still no upgrade choice, then a clean install
    is all you have.
