    Get Vista from here:
    http://download.windowsvista.com/pr...inmain_beta2_x86fre_client-LB2CFRE_EN_DVD.iso

    And what the website says - "you'll be presented with a security warning. After you
    accept the Download Manager will install & begin the downloading process. You may
    ask what the benefit of downloading the file this way. Even if your Net connection is
    disconnected the software will download from where it last left!!
    The best Download Manager is FlashGet, I have downloaded very huge files using
    it. Remember if you format the drive & reinstall Windows again, I don't think you
    can begin downloading from where you left since the DM is installed again!!
    Now nothing much can be done. Better pay online (around 700 Rs) and get the
    DVD posted to your home. Rather than wasting weeks to download Vista.
    Anyway it's a trial version. If you still want it get it from your relatives living abroad.

    i am not asking which is best and not..i am asking if i can recover what all i downloaded b4..or will i have to start again..i had downloaded 2gb..see if it has to resume it shud resume from 2 gb ..or start all over again..why does it start from 260 mb i didnt get it !!
    there must be some way..cauz whatever i downloaded was there in the file...i think later when it reaches that postion it will automatically ..progress ahead ??

    or if i change the link will it work.. but theres only one link on microsoft..maybe there are different servers..

    does anyone know why is this problem caused ???can i get all the partial download back ???

    why usnt anyone helping..please reply guys..
