    Got my keys too.
    Regular TechNet subscribers get two keys for Win8 (x86/x64) and two keys for Win8 N (x86/x64). Win8 Pro, Win8 Enterprise, Win8 Pro VL, and Win8 Pro N VL are NOT included in the regular subscription.
    I will be doing the install of the RTM this afternoon.
    EDIT Yep, the version of Win8 in Technet is actually Win8 Pro...

    I have my TV running now via media portal (poor quality though), so maybe I can keep using it until I can get my hands on the Media Center version.

    John,
    When you dual boot installed, did you use the Sources setup per Brinks Tutorial? I am assuming it works the same.

    All I did was tell it to install on the spare drive that was in my system and it sorted everything out itself.

    I don't know if I'm wrong or if the England release is different, but hash info has is different from the leaked RTM builds.



    Will impatiently be waiting for a US build's info.....
