    Thanks for the link, but downloading won't work for me. Something about a bad URL. I'll wait until tomorrow, maybe then it'll work right.

    XP Pro SP 3 to 7 RC

    Hello people, Ted here for the 1st time.
    Been “testingâ€Â￾ Beta 7 (7000) for a while, I’m one of those who skipped Vista, kept XP Pro (SP 3) and now I’m inches away from downloading the RC of 7
    Question: Didn’t MS have a plan for XP Users to download RC 7 on an external HD or partition and then text edit a workaround to install RC7 without owning Vista?
    Any info will be much appreciated
    thanks
    t

    Mine keeps speeding up and slowing down. One minute it's downloading at 1MB/sec and next minute 30KB/sec. Oh well, as long as it's done by tomorrow morning.

    A couple minutes after midnight it started working ...so I got the download started and went to bed, checked it at 4:00 AM and it was finished, so I'll be installing it later today !! I went with the 64 bit version.

    :)

    Got mine installed by around 9 A.M UK time . Exactly the same as the torrent that was leaked but could not resist the thought of something for free from MS if only for a year :D

    On 32-bit install, I kept getting error realed to sg****.dll and autorun.dll

    WTH is autorun .dll?

    Autorun points to setup.exe.

    I then was about to get to the Expanding file section and it sat there at 0% for an hour.

    Then downloaded the 64-bit and it';s running fine.

    Also Bad Image when installing 32-bit.

    I tried Imgburn at 1x speed and verified files, still didn't work, then I tries ISO burn, same results.

    Anyone else having problems with the 32-bit version?

    Yes, it was download from MS site.

    I have installed both versions and no problems with the 32bit.. that's odd that it gave you such a hard time.. ;)
