I really want Vista Beta 2 on a disk so it is easier to install on a new hard drive. Anyone know where I may be able to get one? No, I don't want to download it. I would pay three or four bucks for the disk if I have to. I just need to know where to get it. Help?<img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /><img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" />

Don't get beta 2 - the latest version is RC2. You might be able to order RC1 on the website, but RC2 is download only.

Why don't you want to download? Downloads are free, legal and take a few hours at most, ordering a disc from Microsoft takes weeks (literally) and it costs money. Also, when you download you just burn it to a disc anyways so how is it easier to wait 4-6 weeks and pay for it?

</div>You don't need a disc if you emulate the 32-bit edition.
