    I am not sure, I am still downloading it, but just check the hash of the .iso and cross reference that with link I posted and you will know immediately.
    My first d/l had the 'Broken iso hash' so d/l the file from the same site you linked and it continues the previous d/l at 99.7% and adds the needed files to the original and completed for me in 2-3 minutes, will depend on your d/l speed.

    Then got the 'Proper iso hashes', simple procedure.

    Have read that it needs the pill, but the last version doesn't enable everything in this build.
    There was a mention of a new version of the pill for 7989 might be available, don't know when.


    Is anyone using VirtualBox?
    Any issues?

    It may be my imagination, but 7955 seemed more stable than 7989. I also think the leaked Win7 builds were more stable than the few Win8 leaks, but this may be by design.

    Dual boot or VB?

    Either way, try deleting the partition you tried to install on, then point the installer to the unallocated space.

    I got it installed in VB yesterday without a hitch and today I just got it to activate.

    I was under the impression that there were going to be no more leaks due to the firing of ms employees for leaking previous builds, guess that was wrong then.

    So were many of us. But I guess that there will always be those who leak, and it's thank to those anonymous people that we have something that we can get our teeth into (metaphorically speaking).

I have noticed that when recoding with fraps on build 7989 does not exhibit problems with minimizing and resorting a game that is being recorded.

Running build 7989 Where are the new features?
When I first saw Windows 7 I thought, Oh boy.. it's Linux. I'm looking at Windows 8 and so far I'm thinking It's just like Windows 7. I expected something a little less windows 7ish. I wanted any new features exclusive to Windows 8 to jump out and grab me. I know this is a really early build but...
