In Breaking News, IT, Windows Vista on November 17, 2006 at 12:07 am

If you are an MSDN Subscriber, head on to fight for bandwidth with every one of your fellow MSDN’ers for Windows Vista. That’s right…Microsoft has released Windows Vista a day earlier than expected. To get the download bits you will need to login with your MSDN subscription credentials and request the proper keys for the installation.

The product key used to install Windows Vista will determine which edition will be installed. The product keys used to install Windows Vista Business N, Windows Vista Home Basic N, and Windows Vista Starter are not currently available.

It looks like MSDN has got only the x86 bits whereas TechNet has got both the x86 and x64 bits.

This single download, which is the file “en_windows_vista_x86_dvd_X12-34293.iso” is an ISO-9660 DVD Image, with a total of 2555 MB, includes the following Windows Vista editions:

  • Windows Vista Business
  • Windows Vista Business N
  • Windows Vista Home Basic
  • Windows Vista Home Basic N
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Windows Vista Starter
  • Windows Vista Ultimate 

Let us know how your install experience was. And enjoy the early Vista experience!!!
