Yes, another release of Windows Vista was made available today in 32 and 64 bits versions.

I do not know if the keys used with the Beta 2 will work, but I am downloading it now and I will say anything about it if I can take the download to the finish.

You can download it here.

Edit: its build 5600, the Pre-RC1 was 5536.

You are to use your windows vista beta 2 key for RC1.

M$ is not generating new keys for this ..yet.

You can upgrade your beta 2 with RC1, however, I don't recomend it.

Personally, I always like to try new things with a fresh install.

ALSo, don't bother contacting M$ and telling them you lost your key they emailed you, they will NOT reemail it to you.

Another note:

The 32 bit version is about 2.65 gigs where as the 64bit version is3.77 gig's.

When downloading, I strongly recomend using M$'s download manager or one of your choosing.

I found that my download stopped 3X durning my 32 bit download.

As far a graphical issues:

1) did you check to see if your computer/videocard are set as being aboe to run vista?
2)did you go and download the latest vista 5600 vid driver, MB driver??

I have found many new driver and programs at this site:

Hope this helps.

Until now I hadn't any problems with drivers.

It installed the drivers for an old Creative AudioPCI ES1371 sound card, and yesterday I installed a Epson Perfection 640U USB scanner using the XP program, after running it Windows detected the new hardware and installed the drivers.
