Forgive an old man for being a little slow. I've worked with computers since the mid-60s and with PCs sinch the late 80s, so I'm fairly PC-literate for an old coot. And I've built several PCs myself and installed the OS from CDs', but only up to and including XP Pro. I have a PC with Vista 32 now, but I bought this PC with the OS already loaded. How do I do the beta installation from an ISO file?
When I downloaded the file from the link above, my PC wanted to open it with my Roxio Creator Basic program and after downloading it attempted to write the file to a CD-5 3 times but got errors every time (3 CDs now in the trash can). I formated a CD-RW and copied the ISO file to it and ejected the CD. I reinserted the CD to make sure that the file is on the CD...it is.
Ok, once I get the activation key (if MS ever makes it available) what next? Thanks.
Thanks for the heads up. The file that I downloaded, 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD.iso, is only 32 mb in size. I am downloading the file now, saving it and ignoring Roxio, and the download indicates that it is 2.4 gb.:lolale, you are looking at big .iso file somewhere > 2GB you would need to burn DVD not thimk of CD's any more and stop Roxio from messing around.:ciao:
