Windows 7: digital river no longer hosting isos.

Yes, Enterprise has no other editions and isn't even considered a normal retail Win7 installation. I don't know why you told me you have Ultimate to unlock, since I could have told you this earlier to save time.

You'll need to locate a Win7 retail installer with any normal version to unlock.

Greg, how about updating your tutorial to mention not to use Enterprise since it will not work as there are no other versions included????

Rich it rarely comes up for consumers because it's strictly a business application. When it does its because consumers are misdirected to it due to the trial version which was never intended for them anyway. After early missteps I have learned to not even bring it up.

I don't believe their are many enterprises that have bought a legal Windows 7 Enterprise are going to be using Gregs tutorials.
They will be using their I.T. department or paid consultants to do their installs and activations.

I have many isos and a serial to match them. I was tinkering with enterprise to boot in vmware last with that usb stick because i just hadnt played with that distro at home as an admin yet. Ill mount ultimate and get cracking

However, some folks might bave aquired the enterprise iso erroneously to solve this same problem. I agree that its very likely rare and therefore unnecessary to put in thr tutorial, but modifying the wording a tad might help. Something like "if you have a home preium iso, itll also allow you to install ultimate with the file removed, however do not use the enterprise iso as it isnt compatible with any other distribution"

On scond thought Perhaps I need to insert in tutorial something like: "Note: Enterprise version does not apply here and is not a consumer application?"

I have a Retail version of Home Premium and Ultimate that are unused. If I wanted to do a clean install on one of my notebooks that have an OEM version of Home Premium on it, would I be able to use the Retail Home Premium disk and the OEM key to do the clean install or will I need to scarf up an OEM disk or ISO?
