Windows 7: Windows 7 Beta Download Links Not Working

Windows 7 Beta Download Links Not Working

I used the following link to download Windows 7 Beta x64 last week:
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...FRE_EN_DVD.iso

I would like to now download Windows 7 Beta x86 using this link:
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...FRE_EN_DVD.iso

I tried both URLs today (a few minutes, as well as a few hours, ago) and they are not working. I read somewhere that Microsoft would allow users until 10 February to begin downloading the files. Have they decided to restrict access earlier or have they changed the URLs?

Thanks for replying!

Hello NosferatuX. Thanks for the reply.

Is there no direct link? I will not be downloading it myself as data transfer for me is very expensive. I will be e-mailing the link to someone who has unlimited data transfer and he will copy it onto DVD for me.

well not really..... you need a "cd key" for the install. providing a hotmail or live account (free to sign up for) will give you a key and the download.

Unfortunately, I've tested the links myself, windows live ID credential are really required.

Just have your friend login with any hotmail or msn account at the link provided above, it will be fine.

TheTeZ, The download URLs as well as the Product Keys have been posted on many forums, blogs and other sites on the Internet. My copy of Windows 7 Beta x64 was actually downloaded using the link in the first post. I installed and activated it using one of the several Product Keys posted on this site:
Windows 7: How to Get Your Windows 7 Beta Product Key

I'm still searching for new URLs for direct downloading. Hopefully, I'll be able to find them sometime before the 10th. If I can't, then I guess I'll have no choice but to sign up for a Windows Live ID.

Thanks for the replies.
