    Hello

    I have already gotten my Product Key. But the direct link to download the beta stops around 350mb. Is there any other mirror?

    I have downloaded a version from a torrent but I want to check the build number BEFORE I install it and my computer doesn't have enough memory for me to install it on a Virtual machine. How can I do that?

    Thank you

    Use a DownLoad Manager.
    It was the only way I managed to get it.

    Download Manager didn't work for me, download just halts at around 300MB mark, sure it may start-up again but after waiting an hour it was still on 300MB, life's to short,
    I wish the ISO's were posted on Usenet, I'd have finished it in 30 mins!

    The download from download.microsoft.com finished successfully, MD5 verified correctly.

    I use IDM and it only took me 2 hours to download both the 32 and 64 bit.
