Could you theoretically - 1) Install, 2) Activate, 3) Run for 90 days

then - 1) Re-Install, 2) Re-Activate, 3) Run for 90 days

Then repeat the process continously ?

You have 10 days to activate the product. If not activated within 10 days, the system will shut down once every hour until activated.

The 90-day Trial will shut down once every hour when you have reached the end of the 90-day evaluation period.
I think the 120 days rearm feature is better for waiting october 22...

The idea behind the evaluation copy is not for the average, or home user, but for company IT departments to download copies to place on their companies computers for testing and evaluation. If you follow the guide lines placed on the download page you have to indicate that you are an IT professional or work within the IT environment. To receive the download you have to fill out a form indicating that you are an IT person.

For most of the people here in the forums the rearm method for the RTM is really the only way to go. With the rearm method you can carry the RTM past the Oct. 22 date for several months. In the evaluation copy there are some features turned off, one such feature is games, they can be turned on in "Programs and Features."

If you are a TechNet subscriber you can download the RTM along with a key. Again the 90 day evaluation is designed for IT professionals so they can test Windows 7 on company computers. Because of that the hashes are different then the RTM, even though this is basically an RTM build it is different in the sense it is the Enterprise version only. Microsoft is attempting to give business a shot at using Win 7 before the release date, so that it can show business (small and large) the benefits of using Win 7 vise staying with one of the older Windows OS's.

You'd get different hashes and sizes easily from (1) the embedded serial and (2) whatever they put in to cause it to time out hourly once expired.

And assumably they'll stop allowing new activations after March, so it's not something you could continually reinstall and re-activate forever and ever.
