Windows 7: Identifying Which Windows 7 Build I have

26 Nov 2009   #11

windows7 7600 x86

Another question about hash files

Are the hash files from regular store bought dvds different than the hash files on the technet site. The reason I'm asking is someone I know has a hash file of:
SHA-1: 2874F721BBFC83C071F4D7F569BAE1A7C38A62E7
and technet's, as listed on the FAQS on this site, say for windows ultimate 86 the hash shoiuld be:
SHA-1: 5395dc4b38f7bdb1e005ff414deedfdb16dbf610

I also have this one as well -
SHA-1: 4fb88ed0e763a0cd82d388e7fdaabd10fc0846d1

can someone explain the difference to me? or if it even matters - I was guessing that the retail get different hashes than technet's depending on date of release due to updates etc. can this be confirmed?

thanks for help
