    Hello,
    i found a bunch of MAK keys for Vista Enterprise and since i wont be getting any Anytime Upgrade key o_O, from anyone here, perhaps it doesn't exist.
    But i was hoping if some one would be kind enough to enlighten me:if their ever was a Vista Enterprise that was released from MSDN (untouched).

    I kind a feel like trying out Vista, which is quite unpopular in itself. I just want to try it out.
    If it doesn't exist, no problemo. I won't be dissappointed, but can someone give me a heads up.

    Chill

    I will admit, i was downloading this from Orbit downloader and i switched it off many time from the Task Manager, since it gets locked sometimes.
    And when i restart downloading the same file, the link must have gotten broken and made some changes to the file.

    I'll download another copy and see, right now we are weathering some heavy rainfall in my place and due to that the network doesn't function to its full capacity. Its only during the night time when the bandwidth is fast as undisturbed, but can't beat mother nature.
    I'll download another copy and post.

    Ok verified, i re-downloaded the Vista Enterprise from the first link, this time i left it for the entire night
    and after completing , i checked the hashes:
    Code:
    Windows Vista Enterprise with SP2 32-bit
    SHA1: C74C2A7A44179D48A7702E6AA321E48C4512D159
    Size: 2309 MB (2.25 GB) 
    It matched 100%.
    Thank you LostED, and i am on my way to try Vista.

    only the RTM editions of Vista were c**p, sebus. some of the serious problems were fixed in SP1 & SP2 and I still use Vista (at SP2 level) on one of my computers.
    Vista SP2 runs nearly as good as Win7.
