Update: Windows Vista RC1 available for Public download
Click on the above link!

___________________________



Sorry :(

---link removed from Microsoft.com---

I think MS was updating that page for RC1 and that's why it was saying Windows Vista RC1 Page.
Microsoft removed the page, so you have to use the other link. Sorry about the big confusion.

You can still get the Prerelease version here that butch123 provided.
Windows Vista PreRC1

----Important Note----
preRC1 download has now ended.

This is not the same as the preview. The preview is 2GB and the RC1 is 3GB.

As far as the Key goes. I'm gonna try my existing key to see if it works. I'll post a link to where you can get your key later.

But they are both Pre-RC1, look at the links, im confuzed now!

PS whats the difference between a preview and this?

Posted Image

The top 1 is the preview the bottom is the 1 u posted about?

Not much size difference, different links.

BOTH have /preview/prerc1

i dont get it

Plus RC1 cant be released yet, its due September 7th

And plus there isnt anything offical yet on www.microsoft.com

This is annoying me now

dude! let me finish downloading vista and tell you.

By the way, I think I have bad news for people without a key. I think you needed the key from the CPP to use it.
I haven't found a link yet for new keys. It's good I always beta test on time :)

im at 94%

I heard you can use your Beta 2 CDKEYS.

The thing is i lost my CDKEY!

Im not a member of MSDN so i didnt get any new ones.

Up until now i wasnt worried about this because i thought you get a new Key when RC1 is released, i dont even know if this is THE rc1, no news anyway, nothing in my email, so how do i activate?

I don't know about that. This first link given out was preRC1. It even said it on the link. This one I'm providing is for both 32 bit and 64 bit like the CPP release. It's from the Microsoft site and it says Windows Vista RC1 not Preview. Plus, it's larger than the preRC1.

Installation requires a valid Product ID. You can use the same Product ID which was used for Vista Beta 2.

Just talked to a friend who works at the Redmond campus. That link IS RC1. Not Pre-RC1.

Well, you should use the same key Microsoft provided last time. The thing is that this is not RC1. This version is 5536 Pre RC1. The only way some people have downloaded RC1 is torrenting it which is the release named 5552 I'm downloading the 5536 64bit thoe, cos' I'm al;ready running the 32 bit... I've been using it for the last 4 days... ;)

I think till now there is no way to get new cd keys.
You have to use your beta 2 (any build) cd key.

If you don't have any then wait, till Microsoft offers new cd keys.
