Default Windows 7 Release Candidate Publically Available

Welcome to Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) testing. We’re on our way to Windows 7, and the RC is a great opportunity for IT professionals like you to take Windows 7 and begin testing it in your real environment. You get to see what’s coming, and we get to see if our changes and fixes from the Beta testing are working correctly. We want to encourage you to install and actively test the RC code. This will help us ensure Windows 7 is the best possible release, and help you get ready for Windows 7 deployment.
The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Windows will notify you two weeks before the bi-hourly shutdowns start. To avoid interruption, you’ll need to install a non-expired version of Windows before March 1, 2010.

ROcker, sounds like you are burning a data disc... you need software that recognizes it's a disc image and burns it as a bootable disc.

This program is free and works well: http://www.imgburn.com/

I think you dont get my point.

I dl the RC,but in the folder where i dl the RC in,all what is there is a readme file,no iso,get it.

In't vlaams dan,ik heb die RC gedl,maar in de folder waar ik die RC heb gedl,als ik dat rar file uitpak staat daar alleen een readme file,geen iso file of wat dan ook,of moet ik dat rar file op een dvd branden,nee toch,ofwel.

I will use Nero for making that dvd,but first i have to buy a dvd-writer.

It took 10min just to get to the point where you can selct country, then another 10min to be able to press "install now", another 5 (approx.) to be able to format my drive, then another 5-10min before the "unpacking" would go beyond 0%.

After that I figured it out that removing/replacing the dvd is the trick, the disc spins up and the installation continues quicker.

It took about an hour in the end I guess, which I find A LOT on a top end system (X58, i7 965, 6Gb Ram, SSD)
