Windows Vista (Pre) Released Candidate 1
Got a YM message last night telling me that Microsoft is making available for download the Pre-RC1 of Windows Vista. This pre-RC1 build is available for a limited time â€“ they will close the program when we reach 100,000 downloads.
After downloading, please install and test the build as soon as possible. Most importantly, if there is a crash, hang, or error â€“ please make sure that you send the information back to us using the built-in Windows Error Reporting technology (a dialog box will display automatically). Sending this information is essential to helping us improve the overall quality of Windows Vista â€“ and collecting this information is the primary purpose of distributing this pre-RC1 release.
Once you complete the download you must burn the ISO file to a DVD. If you donâ€™t know if your DVD-burning software will support burning an ISO file, please refer to your DVD-burning software program and search â€œHelpâ€ for instructions on creating a disc from an ISO file.
I’ve already downloaded my copy which is about 2.6GB if ISO file waiting to be burned into a DVD. Problem is, I don’t have a DVD burner/writer. I think you can use some DVD drive emulater to be able to use and install this. Wanna try this out with my desktop and see how it fares.
