I run the setup.exe from RC1 and upgrade is disabled because I must be
running windows server 2003 SP1 or Windows Server 2008, and (strangely) it
also says I have to remove or rename c:\ProgramData for upgrade to proceed.

I have a dualboot setup with Windows Server 2003 x64 on drive D:. Could I
have to turn off the dual boot for upgrade to work?
