Straight from their site and licensing agreement

a. One Copy per Computer. You may install one copy of the software on one computer. That computer is the “licensed computer.”

How exactly did you come in possession of win7 enterprise version? Individuals have retail, upgrade and oem versions while corporates have enterprise licenses (among others). If this is a company license, only the network admin is authorized to install and activate.

So your question is somewhat incongruous.

I have Enterprise version, and am at a university. You think you're the network admin? Is that your company position? That has nothing to do with being admin of your pc.

1) Enterprise version doesnt come pre-installed on notebooks.

2) The laptop sticker serial applies only to OEM computers on which OEM win7 (not Enterprise version, btw) is preinstalled and preactivated.

3) I'm referring to a network admin as in corporates or universities who are responsible for installation and activation of enterprise licenses, either MAK or KMS.

I see, so the serial I have isn't for enterprise.......... Could it be vista?
But if I was the Network Admin how would I add it to other PCs? Or would I need to purchase another serial or something?

I've googled this alot... but
Is there a way to upgrade or downgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate?

This question has been asked and answered in your other thread.. The bottom line is you will need to purchase a legitimate copy of Windows 7 .... Windows 7 Enterprise is NEVER installed as an OEM operating system...

oh, so then it is one per PC? for some reason i thought i was able to install enterprise on other PCs, I guess the guy was wrong then. So no upgrading or downgrading possible? bummer.

All versions of Windows 7 require product activation.

Windows 7 Enterprise can only be activated with a Volume License MAK or KMS key if it is not activated against a local KMS server. Enterprise requires a VL KMS/MAK out of the box or activation against a local KMS server. It can be rearmed up to 3 times.

Windows 7 Ultimate edition activates conventionally via the internet to Microsoft activation servers???????

Rearmed?
