If you download from Microsoft, do they provide you with a valid key to use until August 2009?

Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal -- we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.

keep F5 ready for those keys

I finally have mine installing right now. It doesn't seem to like IDE drives. Grabbed a sata drive to install on and it showed up in the list without having to load anything.

I get it from inside of my Technet subscription. You should be able to get a key from the link Nekro posted.

FYI you don't need a key to install it either. You only need the key if you want to activate it.

I get this msg "Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal -- we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience." when I go to that link. Don't have a TechNet subscription though. Just wanted to try and get a key before I installed it on my other PC. I'm getting too ansy now so I'm probably just going to install it now.

Just install it. You can always add a key later to activate it. It says I have 30 days to activate. I usually wait a few weeks anyway before I activate so I know that I like the install. Otherwise I just reinstall it.

Here is a couple of pics.



Device manager looks good. It found all of my hardware except for the creative sound card.

I didn't know that paint was going to include the Ribbon from Office 07 either, so that kind of threw me a little. PNG was added as the default option now for paint.
