Of my entire network of it friends, not one of us uses a dvd to install an os anymore, and i would assume the enthusiast crowd is just the same.

We're clearly in favor of it, and probably can all agree that your banning from the forums, is....an extreme over-reaction, at the very least. That's one of the reasons why i avoid any and all manufacturer forums, unless i have to ask a very specific question that they can't find any issues with. Now you see why forums such as this are so popular (and often better) for asking advice.

what you thought i was told!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Forget it im done!

Hmmm, you were afraid of a heated debate, yet you get riled up at a person who's agreeing with you. Life's short, man...relax. I just got back from London and the UK two months ago. Awesome, awesome place. Too nice to be riled up in!

It honestly was. My wife and I took 5,000 photos, and we got to see just about all the touristy things. I'd move there in a heartbeat, if I found a job there. I stayed in the Hilton on Edgeware Road, and was blown away at how well I could get around using the buses and Tube. We bought Oyster cards that covered us for the week.

I just hope if it's getting too much attention, MS won't decide to change it in the up-coming SP.

I think if they were going to change it they would have done by now, besides you could always go down the long root to make a universal dvd so there would be no point in changing it, they are more worried about folk who are using loaders for activation.

Exactly, which is why your banning was ridickerous. You weren't asking anything about bypassing activation. If anything, the only industry it huts is the blank disc market, because we don't need to burn several discs now.

If MS is truly riled up at the way factory bloatware installs are weighing down Windows 7, then they should encourage Users to clean reinstall to enjoy unhindered Windows 7. Now that computer maker's no longer provide an Install DVD (so that they can enforce sponsor's bloatware) Users have no choice but to borrow or find an installer and if necessary unlock all versions.

It's no longer necessary to do the surgery yourself. Just extract the ISO using ImgBurn, run the ei.cfg removal tool which leaves the ISO intact and ready to burn an all-versions DVD. Then install with Product Key on COA sticker, which sometimes requires a robocall to MS during activation to sort your key from batch.

I've clean-installed ten OEM laptops that shipped with Windows 7, and I haven't had to call in anoy of them using the keys on the COA stickers.
