Oh wow I can finally download it. I am not sure about the CD key. I will have to burn a copy tomorrow and see if it will install.

I went to download it. I only need to give them my name and address and email. I used fake name and addr, but real email. Here's what I got in the email. I tried using that Order ID for CD KEy but it's 26 char, CD Key asks for 25. I tried dropping the last 5 and first D, still no work. I think I'm going to call MS. Anyone else have a solution?

Did you recieve the other e-mail? When I downloaded their trial of Windows 2003, one of the emails contained the product key to use just below the download link. While they provide you with one in the email you have up there, the key may be in another one.

BTW: I realize you probably didn't mean anything by it (just a copy/paste of your e-mail), but Microsoft has you register for a reason, so I've removed the link to the ISO in your post.

If you choose to register to download the software, be aware that you will not receive the product CD. The downloadable product software is available in English only.

When you register to download the product software, Microsoft will send you an e-mail message with download instructions.

After you have completed the download registration process, you will receive an e-mail message with a link to the download page. On the download page, you will see a link to the Setup file and a Product Key for the software you wish to install. The file will be in ISO format and must be burned to a CD before you can install the software on your computer.

The download files are large (approximately 450 megabytes) so the download may take a considerable time to complete. Microsoft recommends only those with broadband, ADSL or other high-speed Internet connections attempt this download.

Yes, first thing they asked for was my credit card number and that I would be charged $35. Screw this $hist. I'm downloading Linux, I just want to play with a 64 bit OS with my new Athlon 64.

Hmmm........thanks for the heads up. I installed a secondary copy on my system but I am trying to track down a network driver before I can get online. Everything boots up as SP1 installed with all my hardware recognized. I was shocked.

Thanks! I just checked my email and I got the same email with CD KEY. I also replied to the original email on Wed. I guess I don't hate MS so much now. Win64 is installing as I type, woohoo......

Same here. I haven't tried Flash, but Windows updater doesn't seem to work. It always says Right click on "Windows Update" and run as Administrator, but when I do that I still get the same message.

I've googled and there is no Flash Plugin for the 64Bit IE Browser. If you use the 32Bit Browser (Included) you can use flash just fine. And for the windows update I found this:

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;316524

But I still havent gotten it to work as of now...
