Go get it - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/beta-download.aspx

 

  • You'll need some technical skills, like knowing how to:

    • Burn an ISO file to make an install DVD (A good example of what we mean by “technical”)

    • Install Windows (of course)

    • Backup and restore your PC (There's a chance of losing files, so it's a good idea to do a backup of anything you want to save.)

    • Set up a network

    It can be glitchy—so don't use a PC you need every day.

  • Minimum recommended specs call for:

    • 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor

    • 1 GB of system memory

    • 16 GB of available disk space

    • Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (to enable the Aero theme)

    • DVD-R/W Drive

    • Internet access (to download the Beta and get updates)

    And yes, like anything tech-related, these specs could change.

  • Some product features of Windows 7, such as the ability to watch and record live TV or navigation through the use of "touch," may require advanced or additional hardware.

  • You'll need a system recovery disk (and know how to use it).

  • You're [almost] flying solo: you'll need to troubleshoot problems yourself and call on other Beta testers for their know-how.

  • It's a two-way thing—Beta testing is about feedback so our developers can fix bugs and hear what appeals to the people who use our products daily. Please tell us what you think.

  • Watch the calendar. The Beta expires on August 1, 2009. To continue using your PC, please be prepared to reinstall a prior version of Windows or a subsequent release of Windows 7 before the expiration date. (See installation instructions.)

  • Here is a direct link method

  • The technet site to register for a key is completely unresponsive as it has been all morning. Are there any alternate links?

  • How do you get a registration key?

    Because I used the direct download...

  • now if i dl it via the direct link... where do i get a legit serial

  • I've got the download but don't have the key - I'll second the question about an alternate key link!

  • where do we get the product activation key????  I don't know where the key is.

  • You don't need a key for 30 days, sometime by then things should clear up.

  • Thanks for streaming this like you are doing. Only got 1 question: Where do I get a serial number. I've been reading the Live Search QandA page and several posters have mentioned a SA.

  • but even then .... after everyone clears out where would we get it from, do you propose (legitly)?

  • This IS the 7000 build, right? Would just like to make sure from somebody that has already downloaded it.

  • Yes, it is the 7000 build according to the file.

  • Thanks, Steve. I know the file said 7000 on the download, just wanted to make sure. Heading over to Demonoid to rectify the key problem.

  • Only problem.

    If after 30 days you are not one of the first 2 million downloaders, you won't get a key anyway.

    So we need to get that key legit soon. I think 2 million slots will be taken by nightfall if not sooner.

  • Problem i try to download this and it seems to jsut cut out 1/2 way through has any1 else had this problem

  • Yes, the links are legal haha.
