Break into MS headquartes and pull a key off the keyholder by the door.

edit: it'll be on your left hand side, unless they moved it since I was last there.

No you simply need a Legit Key to activate Win7. Now some times (it is a BUG), even when you install Win 7 with a LEGIT Key, and have to little check on "Auto activate online". It does not Activate.
How to Activate:
Orb -> CMD ( right click - run as admin) wait for the popup.
in popup type slmgr.vbs -ato enter and wait for the popup to tell you
Your activated. If you popup says your activated.
then type slmgr.vbs -dlv
wait for the next popup. It will tell you when the current license expires.

now that your activated, and you can see your license info. exit out.

I just did the slmgr.vbs just see what it said and under the Operating Description, it says Windows 7, RETAIL channel. Does 7100 say that as well?

Well that ruined my theory on something. Guess i can't claim 7201 is RETAIL channel over someone that uses 7100. Oh well, it was worth the shot.
