Hello CalebDK,

Did you use any hacks to remove the watermark on the desktop?

Hi CalebDK,

Which version of W7 are you using? I tried to go through the validation process myself to see what would happen, but no success. I then noticed this:

So we can infer from this that W7 will only be added to the validation procedure when it is available as a retail product. Just to clarify the confusion, although W7 is now in its RC phase of development, it is still classed as a Beta product because it is still undergoing testing prior to being released as a fully-fledged OS.
