So how long will 7264 last if i install it?

I am about to go to my mothers and reinstall her windows(built her a system a few months ago and put 7100 on it) on it. I was going to put 7201 on it but figured wtf i should just put 7264 on it instead.

I keep reading it will not accept the RC keys? Then what happens after install? Does it only last 30 days?

No it has a feature called re-arm. It gives you another 30 days, and can be used 3 times for a total of 120 days. You could also install 7260 and the RC keys work on that version. 7260 doesn't time out untill 3/2010

Hope this helps
