Where to download Microsoft Windows 7 Beta

Post by Apoptosis » Sun Jan 11, 2009 8:22 am

I just got back from CES and am trying to download Windows 7 beta and I can't find a URL that works... Can anyone help out?

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/window ... nload.aspx

When I try this page it just says page not found on both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions!

32 bit

Code: Select all

http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/3/3/633118BD-6C3D-45A4-B985-F0FDFFE1B021/EN/7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD.iso
64 bit

Code: Select all

http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/3/3/633118BD-6C3D-45A4-B985-F0FDFFE1B021/EN/7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULXFRE_EN_DVD.ISO
Then login to technnet (register a windows live a/c to do so, hotmail a/c's work)
http://technet.microsoft.com/
When logged in paste this url into your browser

Code: Select all

https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperience/scripts/gcs.aspx?Product=tn-win7-64-ww&LCID=1033
This will give you a serial number (works for both 32 bit and 64 bit)

NP
I noticed it downloads nice and quick, it got 1MB/Sec from start to finish & completed in just over an hour (10/Mbit DSL here)
