Windows 7 downloads work again(17 posts)
there you go. scroll down till you see 32-bit and 64-bit and pick which lanuage then click the button to right then click go. i think you need hotmail acc though. but here are direct links for any1 who wants them. NOTE: this wont give you a product key just direct dll to iso
If you go to the bottom of this link, set your language and GO, then you will get a notification to the email address that you have given (any email - not only hotmail). Once you got the email (almost instant), you click on the link there and proceed from there. Then you get a product key too. The link that cobija provided I tried yesterday 3 times and 3 times it copped out after a few hundred magabytes were downloaded. But with the procedure I provided, it works well.
PS: Forgot to say, you have to have an account with "tech net". But that is easy to set up.
I am glad it works for you. I hope you have a faster line than me. My download is already running for 2 hours and I am only at 68%. But fortunately it does not really interfere with anything.
And from what you say it sounds like you need either a tech net account OR a hotmail account. I did not realize that they also accept a hotmail account. I have not used mine in nearly 2 years - it probably does not exist any more - LOL
Yea its a big OS, it didn't take me over 1 hour to download tho. When started the download Microsoft asked me to install some kind of Download Manager, so i installed it real quick and then the download started automatically. When i tried to download it without a download manager (with firefox, from another source) i didn't get the whole iso file, only about 20% of it.
Yea it looks like you can use your normal Windows Live account, which is great. Your probably right on that one, why register an account on a website if you can use your normal Hotmail acc. ^^
The lines are a lot faster from Europe. From my German home I downloaded SP1 in 12 minutes (the 670MB file). But there I have a fast DSL. Here in the US, your best bet is to get internet thru cable - especially if you have glassfiber. But I have a standard ATT DSL. The good part is that I pay only $9.95 per month (on top of the telephone line).
