    From the blog -

    Due to very heavy traffic we’re seeing as a result of interest in the Windows 7 Beta, we are adding some additional infrastructure support to the Microsoft.com properties before we post the public beta. We want to ensure customers have the best possible experience when downloading the beta, and I’ll be posting here again soon once the beta goes live. Stay tuned! We are excited that you are excited!

    Not sure yet as I'm at 40% so far. (fast dling at 600+) Total time about 1hr 15min. Looks like only iso. Maybe you can 'phone in' like the earlier version.

    I managed to dl Win7 from Microsoft before they shut it down but no key. Any suggestions how to get a key from Microsoft so I can use this beyond the 25 days it indicates w/o using a hack?:confused:

    if they said they are upping the bandwith on their servers then just keep visting that page and when you sign up before you get the D/L links they will give you a key. How many activations do these keys have unlimited? I got my key this morning right when the site went live.
