I assume it is authentic as it came right from MS from their developers W7 pre-release meeting. The sticker doesn't say COA but it's from MS. I'm a bit of a newbie so I'll have to go over your links carefully. At this point, this looks like just what I was searching for so a big thanks to you!!!!! You rock!

Does it have a Product Key? This is how Win7 is activated.

What does it say on the sticker?

Is it possible this is a beta release which has stretched its expiration?

Yes. I've been reading thru the links you sent and the only one that looks like my interest is this though I really don't understand it: Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

Running the ei.cfg removal tool or deleting the Sources/ei.cfg file unlocks all versions in the ISO, so to me having 32/64 bit on same DVD is not worth all that trouble.

I only need 64-bit so do I understand you correctly that the step in my previous reply are what I need?

There's no reason to make a universal disk if you only need 64 bit - just download 64 bit for your version, or unlock all versions to use your licensed version.

What about these:

One of the MS tech agents gave me a workaround from Digital River to burn a new 64bit disc but the link doesn't work as I probably mistyped as it was a very long URL given verbally. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Go to your developers account with MS & download the 64bit ISO.

I don't have a developers account unfortunately just the developers disk.

Regarding using the eicfg_removal_utility.zip, I found this note: "Your disc still needs to be the same kernel as your key (i.e. 32 or 64-bit)." Doesn't this mean that my disc has to be 64-bit and this is just for choosing the version like Home/Professional/Ultimate? I just need the 64-bit version of the Ultimate disc I have.

The sticker is goldenrod color with the MS logo and key on it and looks like the other ones I have on other MS products. As far as being a beta release I don't know. The developer's pre-release was just a month or so before the public release.

You'll need a 64 bit installer for your version.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
