  •                           this is the messege it gives me....
    An error has occured, if the problem persists please visit the web site and see the help section for more details and to contact support.

    Unable to complete the download, which is typically caused by:

    (a) an error in the configuration of the download package, usually due to a bad hosting location
    (b) no Internet connection found
    (c) Internet connection lost
    (d) a firewall or proxy server between the client station and hosting location, or
    (e) insufficient disk space to download.

  • Did you use the list of possible causes as a checklist to verify that everything is OK in your system and try again the download?
    What about the result?

    Bye.

  • Just to be clear, you are trying to download Windows 7 from MSDN AA to a system running Windows 7, right? Please confirm if you're current operating system is also Windows 7,  thanks!
