    I am annoyed that no matter what browser I have used Chromium, Firefox or even Safari Windows 7 wont download. All it does is sits their loading the little green circle.

    Oh yeah, I had this problem as well, but only in Safari. I used Firefox (on OS X) to download mine and that worked fine. I think it would work in pre-3.5 versions of Firefox. I assume when you tried and it didn't work, you are using FF 3.5 right?

    Maybe give FF 3.1 a go with this, or find a torrent for this. It's legit in this case, don't worry.

    It won't let you thru your Mac. You need IE or a Windows counterpart of Firefox to do so.

    Same here, but I had to download (and subsequently delete) FireFox.

    Mine worked on either Safari or Camino (I forget which). It did hang like that for a while but when I went back to the page a second time it immediately continued properly and downloaded the file.

    Doesn't work with Safari - well it didn't when I last tried - use any other browser to get the RC.

    TechNet and MSDN subscribers have to use IE on Windows to download ISO's and keys.
