RTMQuestions

hey fellow windows seven buffs,
I am still running the RC7100 build I have gotten the last beta release of 7600-16385 from a friend of mine that switched back to XP(likely story)
that he got from MS before they closed it to public (so he says) my question is can I use my 7100 keys to run this or is the 7600 a different set of keys? I have read posts that your original keys that were provided by MS for the RC 7100 and above will work is This only Rumor? Can anyone shed light on this so I can either use the Discs as Coasters for my coffee or install this badboy!

your rc key will not work for the rtm.

you will have to run with no key, using the -rearm extension, until release day oct 22nd.

7600 keys are different. You can however re-arm it to continue using it for 120 days, which is after twin 7 is set to be released to the public

slmgr /rearm ... this will extend your grace period for 30 days .. you can do this 3 times, plus the initial 30 days for a total of 120 days... to see how many days you have enter slmgr -dlv in a cmd terminal..

Try this,


‘Rearm’ trick on Windows 7 is done using the similar commands and steps with Windows Vista. Follow these steps to reset and extend activation grace period from 30 days to 120 days in Windows 7:
  1. Install Windows 7 without any product activation key.
  2. After installation is completed, use the Windows 7 for 30 days and wait for the remaining days left to activate Windows counting down to 0, or almost zero.
  3. When the activation grace period (or evaluation trial period) is almost expired or ended, log on to Windows 7 desktop, and open a Command prompt. window (i.e. type Cmd in Start Search and hit Enter).
  4. Type any of the following commands into the command prompt, and then hit Enter: sysprep /generalize
    slmgr.vbs –rearm
    rundll32 slc.dll,SLReArmWindows
    slmgr /rearm
  5. Reboot Windows 7 to enjoy another 30 days of free usage without worrying about activation nor even need to crack Windows 7.
  6. When the activation grace period countdown timer almost running down to 0 again, repeat the ‘rearm’ trick to enjoy another 30 days of Windows 7 for free. User can run the rearm command for maximum of 3 times.
As rearm only works for 3 times, make sure the command is only been run when the 30 days countdown of evaluation period is almost expired

Does rearm work for the MS distributed Win7 Enterprise?

MS is now letting us get Win7 Enterprise and it runs for 90 days -
Windows 7 free download "for all"; RTM trials and tribulations - Computerworld Blogs

I was wondering two things:

1. will the rearm command work on this version (i.e.- can there be three 90 day terms, like is described here?). Maybe not three, but does rearm work at all?

2. There is a way to delete a file and allow installation of any version of Win7 from the RTM; does this also work on the Win7 Enterprise so I could install Ultimate, for example, instead of Enterprise?

Thanks
