I have downloaded the RTM from TechNet, not quite ready to install it as it is a 90 day version, but it is on the ready.

Good to see you were able to get a good copy. Ensure you setup the Admin account, and good luck.

From TechNet, you are able to acquire full working versions. The referenced 90 day version is Enterprise and is available freely to the world.

Its all I could find, I do admit however I did not dig deep in looking. Do you have a link to the versions you are talking about?

I think there is some confusion here about Technet. There are two parts to Technet. There is the part that is available to everyone w/o a subscription which offers some limited or beta apps for download "to the world," and there is the part that is only available to subscribers. It is this latter subscription part that makes full versions of most MS software available for download.

Thank you. I stand corrected.

Actually, I am corrected in the prone position. Moving furniture is breaking an old man's back.

I am a subscriber to technet, but I have not paid for any Technet subscriptions. If you happen to have a msn logon, here is the link to the windows7 download page on technet, but you have to have an account other than that of a standard user to download.

This has proven to be too much hassle for me and a bit disappointing too I might add. I will give it one more shot by attempting to repair the install verifying the admin option at the beginning. Besides, would a Standard user be able to perform an OS install anyway? I’ve not seen that before. Usually only an admin can do an OS install and this is by default. Right?

If that does not work I'm going to reformat my hard drive and install Vista. I will deal with W7 later after it has been out for awhile.

Full Access to all files/folder for admin. How?
As an admin on my machine, I need (and want) unfettered access to all files and folders. I don't want to discuss merits of it. But I can't really spend 2-3 minutes manually obtaining ownership of each and every file I want to change. Is it possible to do it from one single settings somewhere?
