Windows Vista Beta download (ISO) where?

  Internetwhizzkid 16:59 15 Mar 2007


When the windows vista download came available to public I wanted to try it, sadly my previos computer had no DVD RW and was not compatible. Anyway now that I have a pc that is, Does anyone know where I will be able to download and ISO image of the software, I do have a LEGAL serial and am just struggling to find the Image, as I lost it.

Does anyone know where I will be able to download it from. I would rather not have to download it using peer to peer applications ( bitlord etc)

If you have a legal serial key then the only way you would have obtained it would have been buying it which means you would have got the DVD with it. There is no-where it can be downloaded legally for free.

the beta used to be when it first came out to the public in 2006

Since Vista is now released, you can no longer obtain the Beta version from MS. The only way you would get a copy (and I would strongly advise against this) is maybe ebay.

Why not buy a copy, much safer in the long run.

Well no im not going to do that because I have the Vista Basic version in the post from the free upgarde i got with the new computer. I just wanted to get the beta so that I could see and use the aero interface for myself, but it just looks like I will have to stay with Basic,

actually thats really got on my nerves why does everyone get premium now and I get Basic I want premium, pain in the A$$

I'm surprised they only gave you basic...I am an oem and always provide home premium. You could upgrade this online, but I think that giving you basic is a rather mean stunt to say the least.

I know and the things that I use my Pc for ( dvd editing music etc) is more than enough for premium
