Yes, they're rickrolling us with a 2.5gb ISO on download.microsoft.com...

Edit: Painted, you suck.

What key/activation code do we need with this?

So yeah, that can't be legit.

7000 was the pre-beta build.

The third set of numbers reads 081212. 12-12-08, I'm guessing.

According to Microsoft, the beta has yet to be posted. Yesterday, the company said it would offer the 2.5GB to 3.2GB download starting at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. When Computerworld was able to reach the Web site, just before 11 a.m. EST today, there was no sign of the beta.
It's not even 3:00 CST

Bai guys, I have **** to do.

*edit* well I read that completely wrong...

Oops. I thought it said PST

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

That got updated.

Apparently the ISO direct link posted here was 32-bit.

I guess I'll deal with it,

So, I download 7 and then Mount it to a clean disk, and then say..create a partition and then what? Dual boot or i dunno..explain in layman's terms.. etc? I wanna give this a shot to see if it'll be worth upgrading from Vista.

Windows' multi-OS system is actually rather good.

I didn't have to config anything when I had two different HDDs in my computer with Windows on them.

When I booted, it asked me which I wanted to run, and that was that.

Yeah, but sadly I've only got one HD and it's a 250gb with about..138 free on it. And then I've got the recovery drive with just under 5gb free on that. So, that's what brought up the partition idea.

does this have to take up the entire disk or are there partitioning options?
and can i install on an external drive and boot from it? or is usb 2.0 too slow?

thanks
