Your bios has to be set to boot from the DVD drive. Then installed Win 7 and when it asks for a key you type in the key you got when you signed up to download Win 7.
I think that's it...correct me if I missed anything.
Man, do I lagg...AR is way faster than me!
Once you arrve at the download page the product key is displayed there. The first key used here didn't work so I emded going back a second time for another that worked on the spot. There are 15 total for the 32bit and another 15 for the 64bit RCs.
When finally arriving at the part where you choose the admin account or standard user account name and you move onto the next screen you can skip the product key to simply finish the installation. When going to activate however you click on the change product key option in the View Info screen to enter the key at that time if you choose to wait until everything is on and Windows is running good in case of a bad install for some reason.
The average installation time for most is a good 20 minutes with some reporting a complete install in as little as 12! I'm still trying to find out how they saw it go that fast while some had 8gb of memory over the 4gb here!
