Windows 7: 1 upgrade DVD and 2 serials

04 Nov 2009   #11


Your LEGAL version should only install exactly what you bought.
It works the same for everybody .

It is not advisable to HACK your DVD, and try to install any other version..
YOUR Professional KEY will only Activate Professional..

NO, you select the correct version then insert the KEY for it ....

The installer is the same for all versions, but it takes deleting the ei.cfg file in Sources folder to show all versions, in case you want to bypass inserting key upfront and activate later.
Why are you constantly telling ppl to HACK-modify there DVD.
I wasn't aware that it provides a menu to select from before inserting key. When I went to look for how to access this menu back in the RC, I found this link here recommended by Brink: Unlock ALL Versions in your Windows 7 Build 7000 ISO

If this isn't necessary now, then I am glad to know this.
