yes I checked and it's EXACTLY that one.

And we are EXACTLY in the same position as we EXACTLY HAVE NO KEYS.

This is the most horrible joke that Bill ever did to us.
and I still have to have my dinner.

Some users wanting to get the Windows 7 beta from Microsoft Connect, MSDN, and TechNet have been having trouble getting the beta keys they need. The actual downloads are working fine, but users are unable to activate their beta copies. Microsoft has issued the following official statement on the problem:
We've had some reports over the last few hours where customers have been receiving errors when requesting Windows 7 Beta product keys. We can confirm that we are having trouble distributing Windows 7 Beta product keys right now. Since Windows has a grace period built in before a product key is required, please don't hesitate to download and use the Beta without the product key.
We will keep you posted and let you know when Microsoft fixes the issue.


It looks like they were having problems yesterday as well!

Right click and copy link and paste into a new window to download as otherwise the links will forward to Microsoft.com

You can use this, but I do not know how you would get a product key number though.
