MSBLOG Exclusive: Vista 5308 available for public… kinda

April 1st, 2006 by Zack Whittaker

Please note – this is NO April Fools joke… read to find out! 

Look what I stumbled across earlier…

http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/E/9/9E94A845-8341-4B48-B6C3-DB89D738CF0E/FebCTP_5308_32bit_Main_Staged_DVD.iso

Yep, it’s the February CTP, build 5308 of Windows Vista. At 2.71GB, it’s a staged installation in an ISO format so it’s already prepared for users to get going straight away with (see this about staged/unstaged installations).

However, read this very carefully. Although it’s a genuine download and available from Microsoft, unless you have a genuine product key, you cannot use it… and it’s not a product key from MSDN or Connect may I add.

Why did I even bother saying anything? It’s practically useless unless you’re on the technical beta anyway… 😛

    Patrick S: Translated by Babelfish? Here comes a native speaker 😉

    Die Preis von Vista steht im Moment noch nicht fest. Seriennummern gibt es im Moment nur für Beta-Tester und MSDN-Abonnenten, in den nächsten Wochen gibt es aber eine offizielle Beta.
