I managed to install RC2 - but I can't boot into it:
It just wants to boot into Windows - grub does not come up.
I tried deleting the Windows boot/EFI partitions (two small partitions
before the C: partition), but now nothing boots.  I can try
using the rescue DVD to re-install grub manually, and I can try
re-formatting the entire disk.  But any suggestions would be appreciated.
