You should be able to run any os and your mac not change.
If you are dead set on trying to change you mac try this.
Change MAC Address (Spoofing) for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, VISTA, 2008
Just run it in compatibility mode.
.
I've tried dozens of programs for changing mac address but with no luck and smac is one of them. When I enter the mac address it says disabling and after few seconds enabling but actually it doesn't do anything and I am still connected and surfing and yes I've tried compatibility mode for xpsp3.

Nope. As I said in the first post there isn't option network admin MAC address or sth similar on windows 7. However there is one when using XP and it works flawless.
As you can see from my screenshot nothing about mac changing. I have atheros lan card and it has option for mac changing via device manager, interesting.

EDIT: there's only 2 available drivers for x64 vista. I could try the other ones but they are only for x86 architecture and doubt they would work.

Default MAC address is same, on xp and win7. I've checked it via ipconig and smac and similar programs and by ailive utility. But anyway if you think it might help I could give it a try.
BTW google says you can change mac address via registry, I did it, reset my pc but still default mac is there.

No I don't want to change my mac permanently but to change it for a while so that my wireless access point thinks I'm using my other pc and my other account. The term is 'spoofed' as you mentioned it, my bad. So basically I want to use 2 accounts on 1 PC.

discussing spoofing is a gray area on this site. Check google, there are tons.

OK, didn't know mac changing is considered as spoofing. This is probably the first time I've heard this word
But thanks for your time.

You mentioned using an wireless access point.
Do you have access into the A/P's admin console?
If so you should be able to add the Win7 Partion into the directory.

Can you go into cmd and run ipconfig /all on both machines.

Copy both sets of outputs into here so i can check the settings.

Normally When it comes down to stuff like this I try to stay clear but after reading your first post I saw it was for a legit reason...

So i will try to help you as much as i can.

So I'll guess I just have to wait until Win7 becomes commercial and for the appropriate drivers to be released.
