    andip,
    Hello... Think i know what you're asking....

    1. You can Image the Enterprise with many 3rd party Imaging programs ..free as well as pay for

    2. You can "upgrade" to Ultimate from the "Anytime Upgrade " with the correct "key"

    Regards Fred

    You can't upgrade from Ultimate to Enterprise. Both are basically same & Anytime Upgrade is disabled for both.

    Tito ,
    Sorry for my confusion ... Thought the question was to go from Enterprise to Ultimate ... Didn't know that "Enterprise" couldn't be "Upgraded". Still think it would be a good idea to take an "Image" of whatever OS that your "Tweaking" ...Just to be safe ....Regards Fred

    To me simple answer would be ultimate can be activated permanently useing OEM:SLP be it a bios mod or using Daz loader whereas with enterprise you need KMS activation which you need to do every 180 days. And never seen the benefits of enterprise over Ultimate for a normal user.

    If your windows has the Windows Anytime Upgrade and you can put a key there I have a key for windows ultimate x64 it will upgrade to it.. and then after a day or two will ask to activate windows .. so then you can use Daz Loader :D I don't know if is legal to post the key here or not .. but first I need approval from the moderators.

    Enterprise & Ultimate are the 'highest' SKU, so they don't contain Anytime Upgrade feature.

    THanx!

    How successfully have people been in modding the New UEFI BIOS like in the new 97 chip boards?

    I've been using BIOS mods and have to use KMS on the same box anyhow for "other" things.

    Check this thread; almost all major mobo makers' 97 chipset boards are successfully modded.
