oh i'm sure there will be plenty of torrents hosting it. i'm not sure on the laws of beta software, as it's not being sold or anything...

are you on a 1.5mb connection?.......btw im in Australia, where the broadband is...well pretty much the worst, very rare to find an unlimited connection, im on a connection that allows you to download 25gb a month, and anything after that is on dialup speed...

Default Re: Vista Download!

just tried installing it - didn't work. first i found the installer doesn't work with multiple hard drives... it just comes up with an error. when i unplug one of my hard drives, i can type in the code... i choose the options to install... gets to 2% and then it tells me there is an error. It has now completely ruined my Grub boot manager... which is hell to reinstall.

maybe i burnt the dvd wrong? i can't run the setup from inside windows... i chose the 64-bit vista beta for my athlon 64 and i only have xp home (32-bit). grr...

I max at about 50kb/s

Dont worry about the "no more accepting downloads" - isohunt.com! I think it's legal, because it's not being sold.
