Are/were the keys inside the .iso file or where they a separate download?
if they are in the .iso file can someone tell me where?
Go to your MSDNAA login, then Go to My Software, you will see the Download Link, click it and you'll get the Serial.
The ISO is independant. Just burn it to a DVD. Thats it.

Glad to see some people were able to benefit from this offer (referring to students only). Too bad I only found out about this today

A LOT of us have more than 1 computer for ourselves, A LOT of us change motherboards often and A LOT of us will install Windows 7 on family members computers.
And here in lies a massive part of the whole problem. Programs like this do NOT allow you to use this software, obtained through this program, to "install Windows 7 on family members computers". Think again about why this removal happened in the first place. It was because the program was being abused.

I mean seriously, I work in a shop where we have volume license copies of the software and MAK keys (multiple activation keys). But that does not in any way shape or form give me the right to install it on 1 of my own personal computers at my house let alone a family members computer. You gotta pay attention to the rules and do things as they are intended or it's taken away.

+1 Well said!! Too many people have too little, and or no, sense of what is ethical and right....
Yeah, but I'm still a student, hence I'm going to take as much advantage of the $19 that I paid as possible, that's just the way people work buddy, get over it.

Oh and in case you're too F-ing unobservant to read properly, you might have noticed I never mentioned using ACM keys for those purposes, I said I will install Windows 7... tards. I have only used 1 key so far, 1 will go on my Eeepc (my library laptop) and the rest are waiting for hardware changes.. I am a computer enthusiast after all.

Point: Read and don't jump to f-ing conclusions, then question my morals and judgement.


edit: lol reputation red, you lot think you're like the epitome of self righteousness or something? You really can't blame me for having a go at you for being total asses..

cya.

I'm a student at an UK University. Am I right in assuming we don't have one of those?

As I understand this it is a US only offer - A UK student offer commences on September 30th. If you check the News forum here I think there is a thread giving full information

Hope this helps

Your school may or may not be an ACM or MSDNAA member. Either website will have links to determine this. In this thread, I have posted links which may be of some value in making this determination.

Another option is 741

A much easier test to pass. But you get Home Premium for $30 US. Available in the UK.

Also, see http://www.microsoft.com/uk/windows/...r/default.aspx

Thanks for you replies guys! I have emailed my university to ask if I can get Win 7 actually for free through MSDN AA (as my University is listed). However, my log in details are not working (I'm a Business student). If this does work, it would be sweet! But if not, 30 is a very very decent price.

One more question though. With "Available in the UK." are you referring to the $30 deal from the US (that's 18.36) or the 30 deal for students here in the UK?
