    Sorry if this was asked before. I have the Ultimate iso, can I install the Enterprise edition by deleteing the ei.cfg or do I have to download the iso for Enterprise?

    If you delete the ei.cfg in Source folder ( Windows 7 Ultimate ),then the DVD.iso only includes :

    HOMEBASIC
    HOMEPREMIUM
    PROFESSIONAL
    STARTER
    ULTIMATE

    Not included Enterprise !

    You could downgrade to pro which activates similar but dude ultimate is the same as enterprise minus the KMS/MAK activation generally speaking ;)

    Lol, you're right. It's late here in Norway now, going to bed. But I hope prabs99 take the hint (or advice) from both of us.

    lol...I have also answered questions late at night but really all three are good. Mostly I notice the difference of language option when considering whether to use ultimate/Ent or pro. I got pro cause I wanted to learn more how KMS worked but really if you got Ultimate that's all anyone needs

    I use Enterprise mostly because of the MAK keys (both wild keys and my own Technet keys). And of course, testing the KMS activations on some virtual computers.... ;)

    @rush_ad, you cant upgrade or downgrade to Enterprise and you cant make an Enterprise edition out of a normal dvd.

    Enterprise differs from Ultimate in activation but it does also have additional features;

    ;DirectAccess: technology that enables the user to seamlessly access corporate
    network resources when on the Internet, without having to create a VPN
    connection.

    ;BranchCache: an alternative to alleviate the problems of slow connectivity,
    delivering increased network responsiveness of applications and giving users
    in remote offices an experience more like working in the head office.
    When BranchCache is enabled, a copy of data accessed from an intranet web
    site or a file server is cached locally within a branch office.

    ;Enterprise Search Scopes: allows IT administrators to populate links to the
    commonly used internal sites for example, SharePoint sites – to the Windows
    Explorer UI or to the Start menu or in Windows 7, using Group Policy.
    These links simplify access to the target internal data sources on the
    network for business users.

    ;AppLocker: a flexible, easy-to-use mechanism that enables IT professionals
    to specify exactly what is allowed to run on user desktops. It restricts
    unauthorized software while allowing applications, installation programs,
    and scripts that users need.

    ;Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Optimizations: delivers desktop
    functionality in Windows 7 using virtual machines hosted on servers—a
    solution known as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). VDI enables users
    to access their desktops remotely as well as the ability to reuse virtual
    machine (VHD) images to boot a physical PC. Windows 7 provides for better
    user experience in VDI scenarios, with better graphics, audio and local
    device support.

    ;Multi Lingual User Interface: the Language Packs in Windows 7 Enterprise
    enable you to support up to 36 different languages using a single Windows
    master image, rather than creating a separate image for each language used
    in the organization.

    ;Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA).

    ;License rights to run up to four additional copies of Windows in virtual machines.

    Mak keys do work on Enterprise eval, or for that for matter any enterprise edition.
    I like the word Enterprise better than Ultimate. Could they have changed it to Elite or Super!!!

    thethingy: adobe specialist??? If yes, thanks a lot for all the stuff.
