Any chance that the iso is in a folder called:

MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.7.ULTIMATE.7600.16385.RTM.X64.RETAIL.ENGLISH.DVD-WZT

YOU STILL NEED A LEGIT KEY TO ACTIVATE.
YES I will a key as I have pre-ordered Pro version, put key in when it arrives. BUT I might not do this now as I am told the "E" version is now gonna be shipped with "IE" so will be waste time I'll hang on till my copy arrives.

Anything could happen, but my understanding is that IE *will* be installed with Windows 7 and that the ballot screen will either be part of the install or even possibly turn up later as an update. But Microsoft has now said that the EU will get the same version as the rest of the world.

You didn't answer the folder question...

If the WD 1TB HDD is USB or firewire, be advised that Win 7 will -NOT- install there.

Something sure as hill doesn't jive in my simple mind:

1. If EU gets a ballot screen, then its not the same as the "rest of the world", ATPIT, AFAIK.

2. If the "rest of the world" has IE, then they must also be getting a ballot screen.

Either they are all the same, or they are not...

(Unless it's Microsoft "Doublespeak" again.)

In vista this was true...not anymore. One of the biggest confusing things about 7 is the fact that is your disc is Home Premium it will instll Home Premium...except all editions are actually on the disc. They did this to combat all the phone calls they got from users buying Vista Home Premium and accidentally thinking that they could activate another edition (like Ultimate) with that product key...Some people have complained about this but a complaint shouldn't be made due to the fact that you should only be installing the edition for your product key...not any other
