I got to the site once, but it doesn't seem to be up.

All the evening it showed me a "Server too busy" error message and it says "Page Not Found 404" error. Maybe there were already 2.5 million downloads?

Has anyone successfully completed the registration process? All I got was https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperienc ... fault.aspx where they showed me another error message.

Thank you. Unfortunately it looks like MS just pulled the beta down. I guess due to being hit hard?

Thank you aj.

Hopefully we can get CD keys today. I know some people were having problems getting CD keys (before not being able to get to the site due to it being jammed).

Hope this isn't breaking any rules:
2. Start Firefox, Tools > Clear Private Data > Click "Cookies" > OK, Restart Firefox

3. Open one tab, go to https://login.live.com and log-in

4. Open a second tab, go to https://profile.microsoft.com and wait for it to load

5. Open a third tab, go to https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperienc ... &LCID=1033

6. i'd recommend the check4change plugin and open the third link in multiple tabs, it will give you the same key no matter how many times it "finds" it so don't worry about taking too many keys.

Thanks, it works on first try 4 me (without clearing Private Data).

PS: Of course, for 32bit use this link: https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperienc ... &LCID=1033 in last step.

Note that since the keys are not unique, I am not violating the rules.

I'm pretty excited about this, but it's taking a long while for the beta to download and I'm having to use a torrent since the Microsoft official download stops at about 300MB.
