The Windows 7 site is down right now. It's going to a "the page you requested was not found" page due to over demand. Just be patient, it is getting hammered as expected. :)

Goodnight folks, going to bed now. I am happy with my copies of 7100 from the leak 5 days ago. I did download the current ones to verify they match, and of course they do. Enjoy this RC and now bring on the RTM in October!

Thanks for the e-mail notice guys! I am downloading it right now, looking forward to playing around with it...

Then again, I have it as the OS on my laptop, I don't know what I am going to do come August 1st...

EDIT: I just saw on the site that "The RC will expire June 1, 2010", yea, I get another year with Windows 7 for free!

Took about an hour and a half for me, but I downloaded it first thing this morning when the USA was asleep ;)

CDBurnerXP is a good bit of freeware for burning, that's what I used:

hey tokzy08, i had this same problem but then after several attempts it worked, when you click the downlload link does a yellow box appear allowing you do download?

can you describe in a bit more depth.
It could also be your anti-virus, (if you have one)

Hi olg207, yup still having problems downloading the win 7, i already disabled my Anti Virus, the checked my IE security setting but still cant download the file.

in everytime i tried to download the win7 from download page it keeps me redirect to the home page of win7 page. and there is no yellow box available. BTW, it is fine because microsft sent us CD/DVD copy of Win7 because our company is part of Technet and Gold Partner of Microsoft.

Actually im Network Eng./Desktop Support Tech Tier 1 in our company.

Thank you for that. but still i need to know what causing me the problem.
