You're saying that your system is ok but your install disks are toast? or that your system is hosed and you dont have install disks?

Your Choice

RTM will be out before your "leak" expires. Buy it! The only way you will get more than 105 days without buying it is to get another leak and do a clean install/re-arm(s).

Ok what version of win 7 are you running (type winver in search). if 7100 or higher you can re-arm 3 times. since you said you have 105 days Im assuming you already installed and re-armed once. So in the next 105 days download 7600 and burn a disk of it.


Are you dual booting vista and win 7?

Actually you are not toast because by my count 7 will be available to purchase in 70 days.

what does it say when you try to re-arm? what are you entering to re-arm?
