Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM OEM_SLP Activation

The problem with blacklisting the OEM key is that the OEM key is a master key that was used to produce many legit OEM keys that were given to multiple manufacturers. Thus, blacklisting that key would render many future copies, useless. I believe that's why Microsoft hasn't done anything about it yet.

Everybody is expecting some sort of a fix/patch that will take care of that before the launch of Windows 7. This way, none of that will happen.

FYI, that's what I've read and what I've been told. I don't know if this is completely correct.

They've known about this issue at least since XP, so if they were going to put an end to it in Win7 they would have done so before RTM. They could possibly blacklist the already leaked OEM key(s) since they're not used in any released hardware, but what would be the point? New keys they can't blacklist will be leaked once the hardware with Win7 on it is released.

So how does an OEM key leak anyway? There obviously is some sort of security flaw in putting that out there. Do you think there may be something similar to WGA that could crack down on people using this method?

Hi administrators,

I dont understand all the fuss about discussing these methods. After all most things in this forum are based on illegitimately obtained rtm or oem windows 7 since it has not been released to public yet. It is like being half thieves. Have you taken a look at the traffic on other sites that allow it? Posting on your forum is like walking on eggshells. I might get banned for writing this post but I am not going to be treated like a child.

Save your reprimands for other gutless wonders.

thank you very much and goodbye!!!

As I understand it, in the case with the OEM crack that was going around (and since patched I believe), someone involved with Lenovo leaked the OEM key themselves.

Your logic is pretty flawed here. Have people here said they have RTM? Of course, but merely saying they have the RTM build and where they obtained it are two different things. How is anybody here to know where or how they got their RTM builds? Mods/admins, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here, but as I understand it, it works like this:

Saying "I have Windows 7 RTM" = okay.
Saying "I got Windows 7 RTM from this torrent/warez site" = not okay and likely gets you banned.
Asking where to get Windows 7 RTM for free (meaning any non-MS source) = not okay and likely also gets you banned.

There are obvious legal issues here. If Microsoft knew this forum was a source of where to illegally obtain Windows 7 RTM, they'd shut us down in a heartbeat, hence, members here aren't allowed to ask or say where to get Windows 7 RTM, if it's not from MSDN/Connect/etc.

That's one of the reasons I love this forum. Highly active mod's who take no guff.

Back on topic, how does anything get leaked before it's out to the general public? Games, movies, etc. It's an inside job, as KazeNoKoe23 said. Corruption isn't just in the government, it's in corporations too. Just imagine a world with zero corruption...
