Create a Windows 7 Live CD

Quote:
About a year ago I set out to create me a Windows 7 live CD. Finally, I am able to present you with the How-To. But before we get into that, letís review what a LIVE CD is.A Live CD is an actual Windows Installation that you carry with you on a USB Flash Drive or CD/DVD. The Windows Installation is portable, meaning that you can have your own windows running on any PC you encounter. The Live CDs are most commonly used to repair computers that have crashed or to rescue data from a hard drive before doing a fresh installation. The great thing about a Live CD is that it does not alter anything on the computer you use (almost like a sandbox). You boot the computer as if it is your own (from the CD/DVD or USB). You can pre-install all the software you like, making it available no matter where you are. Sort of a Laptop, but without the hardware.

How is this activated so that it holds activation on each machine to which it's moved?

A legal live CD of windows is impossible- live CDs are a creation of the linux world with their liberal licensing policies. And whats to prevent smart chaps from copying the CD over to a hard drive partition and making that partition bootable?

Will MS who frown upon transferring one's own paid copies to a different computer allow live CDs?

This is the issue with installing to flash or external HD's. How does it hold activation if you can move it around to your choice of machines?

The source post claims it's completely legal, so let's find out how they keep it so.

Does this provide a tool for a customized Winpe (Win7pe) disk or USB.
If so I guess it's subject to the legality and constraints of any winpe.
