  1. I got the notice from Microsoft regarding the availability of Vista Pre-RC1 and used the download manager to obtain the ISO image and burned it. I recently, reinstalled Windows XP Home and reformatted the HDD. I made a partiton to install Vista, but I found that the disc was bad. I tried to download another image, but the site is now closed.

    Does anyone know where I can get another ISO image?

    Vista Pre-RC1 is not piracy, its available as a public download.
    Hpak, the public download was limited to the first 100,000 downloads, so you may be out of luck. If you still have the downloaded ISO, then check if the MD5 hash matches with the official one, if not, then you have a corrupt ISO.
    Unfortunatly, I can't tell you where to get the ISO from, although there alot of UNOFFICIAL mirrors.
    If you are part of the Vista beta team, you should be able to get it via Connect.
