Finally Got My Windows 7 Beta Product Key

After a day of delay in making Windows 7 Beta public by the Microsoft, Windows 7 beta download is back live again and I got the product key finally.

Originally, Microsoft only allowed TechNet subscribers to download via this link. Now, they just setup a second link for all to download.

If you use the TechNet link, you should see the below.

Follow through the instructions as listed on the page and hopefully you get your Product Key. You will need a Windows Live ID.

Very likely, you will see a "Page Not Found" error when you try to get your Product Key. I recommend you use the below 2 links to get your Product Key. You may need to refresh several times just to get the right page you want like below.

64-bit key:

After you got the Product Key, you may proceed downloading the over 2GB Windows 7 beta disc image. I recommend you download using the direct download link method. I also strongly recommend you use one of the download manager software around in the market, e.g. Free Download Manager, to resume download in case it fails halfway through.
