    Windows 8 Download


    Hi guys,

    I am a student and have access to the MSDNAA for my University, i have started downloading Windows 8 and has stuck at 90% and am in desperate need of Windows 8 to do some testing. Just wondering if there was an active link for the Windows 8 BETA? as i could do with it soon rather than later.

    Kind Regards Damien

    I would wait for the download to complete...which it probably has done in the time since you posted. Make sure the downloader isn't paused.

    Nope the download has not finished, has been stuck on 90% since 1:30 so looking for a temporary solution, it is only going to be used with a Virtual Machine for testing.

    Note W8E doesn't have many features that Pro has.

    Oh, well that's great and sorry I didn't think of the W8E download. By the way did you bring up the Pro download to make sure you haven't paused it?

    That happened to me once with the MS servers and in the end I scrapped that download and at second attempt it went without a hitch.
