In my opinion, it's a beta. The license in the iso says "PRE-RELEASE" and the watermark on the desktop also told us it's a beta. According to the label of the iso "IR3", it should be Refresh 3 Beta. Also, there're some builds after 9600.16596, so it IS a beta.

It may be a beta, but the question is, can it be used to activate it and run as RTM without timebombs? We don't promote warez on this site, or software that can be changed to become warez. That's why I ask. If this build is rigged in such a way that it can't be activated and that it has an expiration date then it's fine, as it can't be updated to RTM. What you do with the ISO after you grab it here is none of our concerns, but we won't "pre-modify" the ISOs to allow you to run it as a pirate RTM copy, with or without updates.

So can it be permanently activated using RTM keys?

Yes it can. Also activating with KMS servers is possible.

Would there be a way to modify it so that it can't be activated with new product keys?

Well, I've put it on BA, but it comes without two files that doesn't belong in the ISO , the ei.cfg, and the winclub.pl.url file that definately doesn't belong there.

I have ran it in a VM, and you can use your current product key for Windows 8 or 8.1 and it will work. However, with mine it says it has exceeded its usage limit, but it could be different with yours.

What do you mean by BA (sorry for being such a noob :P), as if you mean the FTP, I cannot see it on there at all.

BA means BetaArchive, and yes, this release is not in our ftp (yet).

I knew what it meant by BA xD, but I meant if he could be using that as a way to say that he uploaded it to the FTP. Sorry for the lame assumption.

The only way to put files on BA is on the FTP :).

I'm loving these new features of the build. Windows 8 is expanding and only continues to get better.

ISO confirmed to be modified beyond ei.cfg, please refer to this link instead for the re-leak of the more proper (not original though) ISO!
