    If you're unfamiliar with OS testing, don't mess up an install you need (i.e. homework/work), and make sure you have reliable, fresh backups if you do.

    Or a spare hdd :)

    It's not a trial, its a release candidate- basically better than beta, but not yet release.

    Thanks alexp999. :toast: I just tried to pm you about my thread, but your inbox is full.

    I hadn't realised that there was a News subheading.

    yeah i'm trying various ones.

    So far i've got 7 beta keys (already had em) and server 2k8, but vista keys just wont work.

    edit: all of a sudden, keys appeared. i think they delay in appearing, cause the servers busy.

    I just got 5 retail vista ultimate keys. holy crap.

    I think i may have found the reason for the no keys-

    Try clicking on the product keys tab at the top,and see if it says the same as this.

    that product keys page did eventually load for me after a few tries - it lists all your keys, and products you havent got keys for yet. i just clicked get keys on every one, and copy pasted :) i feel... rich.
