Cheers

So when does it expire with the key? Also, can this beta be updated to a new beta without too much fuss?

Right, finally got it downloaded and burnt to a DVD, now I need a another partition on my hard drive, anyone recommend a good free partitioning tool?

Or does the Windows 7 installer allow you to make a partition?

Finally got my keys from MS. Got both the 32-bit and 64-bit ISO's as well as keys for both. Right now I'm trying out the 64-bit version.

Too bad surround sound for my X-Fi isn't working in Windows 7

Anyone having issues downloading this? Mine stops downloading it and doesn't start again. It has happened probably half a dozen times now. The first few times it reached about 80MB and just stopped. This last time it reached 600MB and stopped. Now, it won't start again.

???
