    As the title says, when I use a generic key to download windows 8/8.1 through the microsoft installer, I always get the message "We cannot connect right now". How can this be resolved?

    Thanks in advance!

    you need a valid key for your download. If generic keys would work, everybody would load the files and this is what MS doesn't want

    If i'd find the dutch version anywhere, I would ;) but I don't want any tampered version of it, just the untouched ISO. If you have a link or so for that one, please let me know :)

    Why use dutch version if you can install english and add language pack after that !!

    If you ever want to upgrade you will need the new dutch version and english is easier to find !!

    Well, actually, most of the things are translated using the language pack, but not everything, the 'core' translations aren't made (for ex. when connecting to a wireless network, instead of "identificeren" it says "identifying") and I don't like that :D I know, it's a small thing, but I like a completely translated OS :p But that's just me ^^

    Keep up the good work! :)
