Win 8 Release candidate 8400


might be a good idea to tell us what version (build ie 7100) you have.

Windows 10 Pro x64 x2 Windows 10 Enterprise x64, Ubuntu

No keys other than those officially supplied by Microsoft will activate the RTM (retail) versions of Windows 7 - Not entering any key will provide 30 days grace before the key must be entered

you can install it without a key and use it for up to 90days, after the first 29days you just run "slmgr.exe /rearm" from a command line.

Vista Ult64, Win7600

But Don't rearm it until the 29th day, that way you will have
a longer time with windows 7.
