Missing Visual Upgrade

After a database attach migration from SP2007 to SP2010 I don't have a Visual Upgrade option under 'Site Actions' menu (top-level site). It was a publishing site under SP2007 and had some customizations done by someone else using Visual Studio. When I go to "Modify All Site Settings" I have the 'Visual Upgrade' link under 'Site Collection Administration' section with two options: Hide Visual Upgrade Options and Apply the New User Interface to All Sites.

I also found a Powershell code to unhide visual upgrade if it was hidden but that didn't work either.

My question: is it still possible to show that option on all sites in that site collection as I want to migrate to the new interface site by site?

I migrate another site collection with a separate database from the old site and it has Visual Upgrade available.

Have you tried getting the visual upgrade state of the site?

$sc = Get-SPSite http://machinename/sites/collectionname; $sc.GetVisualReport() | Format-Table

and if you have, have you tried upgrading it with powershell?

SiteCollection:
$site = Get-SPSite http://server 
$site.VisualUpgradeWebs()

Site:
$web = Get-SPWeb http://server/site 
$web.UIVersion = 4
$web.UIVersionConfigurationEnabled = 0
$web.Update()

I have UI version 3 on all sites. And UI configuration enabled on a root only. At this point I don't want to upgrade - just preview first.

Your UIVersionConfigurationEnabled is probably set to false

use
$db = Get-SPContentDatabase WSS_Whatever

$db.Sites | Get-SPWeb -limit all | ForEach-Object {$_.UIVersionConfigurationEnabled = $true; $_.update()}
