All except Web Server were on an all-in-one DVD.

It's already out here (scroll to the bottom to download), but the server for the registration seems to be very slow at the moment.

Hmm, weird, a minute ago they had a load of information about it on that page and links to register to download 32-bit (English, German, Japanese, Arabic, Hindi) or 64-bit (all except Hindi), though it timed out when you clicked the registration link, maybe they've taken it off again because of the server not working.

They pulled the Windows 7 download page too. My guess is they were getting smashed.

This is a bad start for the Windows 7 era. Few hours after the beta lunches it dissappers without leaving anything. Well, I hope they will give the beta download again soon.

Its on the ftp.betaarchive.co.uk, but the official beta will take a while, unless you have MSDN/Technet.

The ISOs are exactly the same. If you already have the ones from BA or M1, then there's no real need to redownload these.

Nope.

The MP3 bug was fixed as an update to Windows 7 Build 7000. Technet has the MSUs apparently ;)

They removed the download because they are upgrading deu to heavy load.

Quote:
Due to very heavy traffic we’re seeing as a result of interest in the Windows 7 Beta, we are adding some additional infrastructure support to the Microsoft.com properties before we post the public beta. We want to ensure customers have the best possible experience when downloading the beta, and we will be updating this page once the beta goes live. Stay tuned! We are excited that you are excited!

I find it interesting that the Server 2008 R2 beta is based on Windows 7... or at least, it shares the same buildtag. Is Windows 2008 R2 supposed to be Win7-based?
