Everybody is expecting some sort of a fix/patch that will take care of that before the launch of Windows 7. This way, none of that will happen.

FYI, that's what I've read and what I've been told. I don't know if this is completely correct.

umm MS (HAS) already issued leveno a new master key
and black listed the leaked key as NO oem machines are running 7
and wont be till October

but if you payed close attenchion this was the exact same issue with vista RTM it was NEVER fixed just cemented over..

and infarct still works post sp1

so unless Ms actuarially modifys how OEM keys are activated then this WONT ever be fixed

Exactly, and I don't know if Microsoft will ever do anything about it. But I think the reason that they didn't do anything about it back in the Vista RTM days, is probably because of the general response they got from the world regarding how horrible of an OS it was haha.

Hi there I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around). However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter...
