Release Candidate versions of Vista SP1 will expire on June 30 – Uninstall Now!

By Anthony Mann [MSFT]:

“I want to remind everyone who installed the Release Candidate Vista SP1 that you must uninstall any RC builds (any build less than 6.0.6001.18000) before they expire on June 30. After this date, the kernel will stop with an END_OF_NT_EVALUATION_PERIOD error message an hour after the machine has booted. If you do wait until after June 30, just reboot your PC and start the uninstall process right away.”
