OK, this is an opera of mistakes.\n\nI got the key and saved the label image with the assumption that the actual\ncdkey was on it. I was unable to download the Vista beta 2 due to the high\ndemand on the server so I downloaded it through a torrent instead. I\ninstalled and used the supplied cdkey that came with the torrent(mistake 1).\n\nLater that day I cleaned out my Hotmail, including the mail MS sent me with\nthe product key still thinking I got it anyway(mistake 2).\n\nNow when I've been using Vista beta 2 for a while I decided to activate it,\nproblemo... cdkey is already used!? Oh... right I used the one that came with\nthe torrent, no worries I'll just use mine instead... opening the image to\nfind a blank label image... argh, and now the public beta is closed.\n\nIs there some way to get MS to resend the key? The key must somehow be\nconnected to my hotmail address doesn't it?\n\nBeta tester in pain.
