Vista

Recommended Posts

my school is a member of msdn. and we all got copies of vista beta 2. my teach downloaded it and i saved it to a external hard drive cause i did not have a dvd burner. it is an *.iso file. i an trying to upgrade my box from xp to vista. this is not my main box. do i have to have an iso buster to run the setup from windows? if so were can i get a free one to use this one time?

thanks in advance

Daemon Tools is a free image mounting tool if that is what you want to use

daemon tools works wonders

 

used to use alcohol but it stopped working on my pc for some odd reason

 

alcohol 120% is cool but you have to pay for it

 

im sure you can find a free program out there that can extract .rar files

try www.majorgeeks.com

I think you better have them recheck thier MSD license agreement.

 

I highly doubt they are allowed to hand it off to students.

Wasn't Vista Beta 2 available for download online for some time? We got the cd via the msdn subscription at work as well, but I was pretty sure it was downloadable for at least a period of time.

Well here's the thing, even though MS Vista Beta 2 was publically downloadable, I don't think it was alright with them if a large group of people used the same product key.

i think they are trying as hard as they can to get somebody to install it... :lol:

i do not think they would be too concerned.

most EULAs are just lawyerspeak.

i am not trying to say i would disregard the EULA, but am merely trying to point out that MS knows the future of Vista is dismal until they get it to work much better than it does now.

i have been a tester for MS for many years.

my copies of Vista are still sealed in the envelopes they arrived in... ;)

I was able to download Vista RC 1 direct from Microsoft for free to try until Feb 2007, so Beta 2 is old news at this time anyway, and lots has been improved.

I wish I could try it out, but I hear good things about it from the various reviews released. I plan to get it when it is released. Well... that is if I can get my hands on one.
