Vista Beta

  1. I have a copy of Vista beta. When I try to install it it says the key is expired. I never used it. It took me a while to get my machine up to min req. Is there any way to use this?

    The vista beta program was over in either june or july. You have to go out and buy copy if you want vista.

    You may be able to get around it by not allowing it internet access and setting your BIOS to something like January 2007. But then you'd only get 30 days because you are supposed to 'activate' it.
