If Windows Vista is running in out-of-grace reduced functionality mode, you cannot perform the following actions:
  • Play built-in games

    The games that are included with Windows Vista are unavailable in reduced functionality mode.
  • Use premium features

    Windows Vista premium features such as Aero Glass, ReadyBoost, and BitLocker are unavailable in reduced functionality mode.
  • Log on for more than one hour

    In reduced functionality mode, you can only remain logged on to Windows Vista for one hour.
Most likely same for 7

WHat if you create an image of your C: drive once you have everything setup perfectly?

Could you just not load that image up after 120 days?

Although, maybe you could. After 120 days, restore your image and re-arm it. That would be the first re-arm for that image. Rinse and repeat.

It won't work since the date/time of installation is stored locally.
