I am having this problem: Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist
I had that problem as well, yet installed fine on another PC. So I swapped the DVD drives around, and it installed fine. Try a different drive.
That's not banned from their server at all. It's probably stopping since download.microsoft.com itself is typically a busy host, and second, Microsoft wants people using Akamai as a mirror since their server already spent enough bandwidth to upload the ISOs to Akamai, who is more willing to provide bandwidth and distribute mass amounts of files. Also, if many people were downloading from the download.microsoft.com and not Akamai resposatories, the server may have been dropping connections since it was overloaded.I am trying to find someone that can mirror it because I seem banned from microsofts server for some reason. I can only dl 185 mb then it says it's finnished
I've been using beta 1 since the public release, and, IMO, it's almost as stable as a retail version.I didn't, I recognize windows as unstable, and I use Vista. I could not imagine one of their betas. I will eventually they release it.
