If you got it from microsoft they may offer customer support although this is not likely so any thing that goes wrong is not there fault.

If you've got a warez version (illegal) then DO NOT INSTALL IT...

Reasons why

1) Its illegal
2) It could be full of bugs and virus that hackers have put on it.

In either case if anything goes wrong with beta copies its YOUR problem.

I would just make sure that you have backup disks for the system so you can restore it.

You have completely misunderstood the issue - which probably means others have too!! So let me try again.... Windows 64-bit is a new OS (currrently in Beta) available as a free download from Microsoft which runs with the Athlon 64-bit Opteron processor. I am looking for comments from Windows professionals who have had good/bad experience with installing this Beta product.
