I also get the key error. Data cap isn't an issue for me but the servers seem a bit busy.

Maybe a little overloaded, think how many people will be downloading

just got the word that the webguys have fixed the download option and it now works when you select NZ from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/preview.mspx

It should now take you to the page with a Product key and download link

Good luck, post your download speeds if your're downloading from home.  I'm getting about 90KB/sec on one and 100KB/sec on the other over TC cable

Cheers

Can you try to go to the bottom of http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/preview.mspx 

and select New Zealand, Go

to try again

Should give you a key, you should be able to get 2 in total to install on 10 different machines each

Cheers

Is it just me or is the download server still crazy? My speeds fluctuate wildly, it goes up to 200 and down to 0, although it drops less frequently now.

Anyone know any other source to download from?

Probably just the way it is, with the entire world trying to download this at the same time. Wait and see. Perhaps wait two days and try again.

I'm quite impressed with this build Nathan. Works ok on a 512MB Tosh R100 (slow at times though), and equally OK on a 4 yr old 1.7Ghz Athlon 1400.

WMP and Media Centre not usable though for me - haven't tried on my machine with a DX9 card yet.

I managed to get from 30kb/s to 300 kb/s on TCL backbone....
