Where to download Vista again?

Posted: 08-26-2006, 04:54 AM
Jeez... I've been round and round and round the microsoft site looking to
download the beta again. I had it before...had issues with it, and
uninstalled it. Well just recently m;y comptuer got a really nasty virus and
I went with the nuclear option to get rid of it.

Now that i'm back to a fresh, clean install of windows, I thought, "Why not
give Vista a try again?"

But I can't get to the download for it! Help?

Where to download Vista again?

RC1 is release candidate 1 - When released it means your getting very close
to the release to manufacturing. It has not been released as of present.

Okay, I was browsing around Microsoft and saw that RC1 is out. Yay! But the
website says to get it, you should check the e-mail you got from Microsoft in
Early Sept...

Ummm...I got no e-mail. But I WAS a part of the Beta for awhile. Any help?
