Windows 7: "About Windows" - where is this found?

08 Jun 2009   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
"About Windows" - where is this found?

Hi. I'm just curious as to how I would pull up this screen on my PC:

While I'm here, where does Win7 'Professional' come from? I thought all these 'builds' were of Win 7 Ultimate...

And why would the version in the above screenshot already have a Service Pack installed??

Many thanks.

Gotcha. Many thanks. Anyone know about 'Professional, SP1' and where it comes from (given that all I've ever seen before is 'Ultimate')?

Ultimate is the only 1 available, you can edit a file within the ISO that is downloaded to allow selection of the version installed but they keys distributed are only for Ultimate and wont work for any other version.
