They should give you the key when you download it. technet.microsoft.com -> sign in using Live user and pass -> go to downloads -> Operating systems -> Windows 7 -> then it should show up with download and key. Its greyed out because it hasnt been released yet, just wait.

Okay, the windows 7 site said it's down temporary as they add more servers - however, where is the place you can get the KEY ?

Why don't they have this up or is getting the key part of the process of downloading?

Thanks

Update on Windows 7 page...

Thanks for your interest in the Windows 7 Beta. The volume has been phenomenal—we're in the process of adding more servers to handle the demand. We're sorry for the delay and we'll re-post the Beta as soon as we can ensure a quality download experience.

Thanks

I went there (have a LIVE email) but saw a BENIFIT ACCESS ID. I don't have one of those, so where to the normal folks login to get the key?

I think someone should explain, step by step what we need to do.

Example:
* If we downloaded the version here from this forum and it's the same, what we need to do to get a key.

* Do we need a LIVE id.

* If we downloaded the version from here, what is the next steps.

Thanks

PS. Nice find, this forum - are they looking for admins? I have a hidden forum for those that also work in music, feature film.

Anyone here an editor, composer, music supervisor, artist, producer, director?
Just curious.
