Windows 7: How did my Windows 7 Professional sysprep become Windows 7 Ultimate?

How did my Windows 7 Professional sysprep become Windows 7 Ultimate?

Hi, I used sysprep for Windows 7. I downloaded KB3AIK_EN.iso. WAIK. My machine has Windows 7 Professional. It is legitimate, paid for and all that. But, when I rebooted my sysprep machine it said I had Windows 7 Ultimate and it is activated.

How is this possible? Thanks for help.

Hi TheConfused, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Could be many things, first that comes in my mind is that you have used Ultimate image with WAIK. See this tutorial step 2.4 to see what I mean.

Please attach the answer file you used into your post and we will check if there's an obvious reason. It is important to check what's wrong, you might get various issues in the future if you have somehow managed to activate Ultimate with a Pro key.
