It was just a few days ago when VistaTorrent.com started and provided the world with a quick way to download Windows Vista Beta 2 (build number 5384). At the time they only had the torrent posted for the x86 (32-bit) version but the x64 (64-bit) torrent is now available. Downloading via the BitTorrent network is much quicker than downloading the file directly from Microsoft right now, so here is how you do it:
- Download **FILE REMOVED FROM HOST**.
- When the ISO has completely downloaded, please run a checksum verification against the x64 file. It must match this MD5 hash: e43502d0a15eadd551119d5639859e04. Accept no substitutes, as we downloaded this ISO directly from Microsoft’s servers.
- If you haven’t already, you will need to visit Microsoft to get your registration code for this Vista beta. They’re free for the taking!
- This step is optional, but we ask that you please keep the torrent open once you’ve finished downloading it – as that will help increase the speed of subsequent downloads. We’d also appreciate it if you let others know about this site and the torrent.
The 32-bit instructions and torrent file can be found here. Many people recommend the 32-bit version because the 64-bit version requires special drivers for your hardware, and often people have troubles finding the special 64-bit drivers that are needed.
