CNN Article on Digital River download issue
Apologies to folks who have already seen this:
Windows 7 student upgrade hell - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Brainstorm Tech
(link currently on front page of CNN)
As I posted several days ago, I am just shocked that MS didn't work with Digital River to get a solution out there ASAP...to avoid just this type of press. I really have been surprised that I didn't get an email a day or two after release day from DR or MS stating, "if you have issues, you can download the ISO from here." I mean seriously, what's the value of the ISO without a key?...and if you managed to get a cracked key, I doubt access to the install media is what is holding you back.
I am sure that this issue is DR's fault since they appear to have written the installer based on its signature...but the result is the same either way - bad press for MS and Win 7.
Anyway, just thought that I would share.
