Closed Was anyone able to download Windows 7 Beta 1 ISO? Tags: Download Windows 7 ISO Last response: February 8, 2010 10:18 PM in Windows 7 Share r_manic a b $ Windows 7 January 9, 2009 3:47:53 PM Read up on the beta release today on Wired, but the download link there seems to be down. Are that many people really interested in Windows 7? Any torrents of this up? More about : download windows beta iso mitchellvii January 9, 2009 4:41:51 PM Yep, torrents work but many are corrupted. You can take all day to download then it won't work. I got the x64 version from PirateBay and it worked fine. Been playin with it and honesty, I don;t see what all the excitement is about. Feels and look pretty much just like Vista. Also, wont supprt my Laserjet 3200 printer which is pissin me off. r_manic a b $ Windows 7 January 9, 2009 4:43:56 PM Pah, you'd think MS would've started extending generic support for peripherals, even if this is just a beta.

They say only 2.5 million will be allowed to download so you may just be better off wit the torrent as 2.5 million will be gone very fast. Like I said, I have it and honestly don't get what the excitement is about. mitchellvii January 9, 2009 7:20:10 PM Ok, get it here, no waiting: http://blog.wired.com/business/2009/01/windows-7-publi.... scorpion_anshul January 9, 2009 11:14:51 PM i was able to download both x86 and x64 versions from technet site today.. r_manic a b $ Windows 7 January 10, 2009 8:18:27 AM Thanks for the links guys! Here's to hoping I fall within 2.5 mil randomizer January 10, 2009 8:29:42 AM The 2.5 million isn't right, somebody messed up. There was never a limit to the number of downloads.

I tried getting the key on the 8th but it failed. r_manic a b $ Windows 7 January 13, 2009 8:17:23 AM Maybe less people are trying to register now. Let's hope that 2.5 M threshold hasn't been reached!
