    No luck - maybe I don't have the correct type account to access the d/l from the Technet area. I never gave them any money, so they aren't gonna give me any links.;)

    I dont have a technet account, maybe I just got to the site before everyone else did, and the site broke. I just used my regular passport, got my key and downloaded the beta.

    i am able to access the technet page using my regular live log-in details, but the options for key, and download are greyed out, with details being the only option available to me.

    ok this is getting ridiculous. I was hoping they would be prepared for such charge on their server but it looks like they underestimated the demand for this beta.

    I am going to boot from win7 6956 and try to connect with IE 8. maybe they will let me enter :rolleyes:

    Not over yet Colin.

    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!

    this was posted just before 9 uk time, so whats that? 1pm pacific time?

    Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal -- we’re in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We’re sorry for the delay and we’ll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.
