1. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.  
2. In the Currently installed programs list, click any beta release version of a 2007 Office program or component, and then click Remove.  
3. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the program or the component.  
4. Click Close when the Setup program finishes.  
5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for each beta release version of a 2007 Office program or component.

Did you restart you PC after un-installing the pre-release version?  If not, definitely try that.

Good luck!

Not really - it looks like there was some stuff left in the registry that was stopping the new install:

You could try running Registry Mechanic (before re-formatting):

(you will need to buy a copy to fix any potential problems - but you can always go through and manually delete what is given - take care though...)
