I've just spent alot of time reading about all the different activation methods of windows 7. From all sorts of different loaders, to bios modding, to versions that are supposedly pre-activated, or cracking it while blocking the anti piracy updates. Not to mention all the different rtm, or rc, or ultimate versions, etc. Its just overwhelming, especially trying to figure out which info is most current. Can anyone bring me up to speed and let me know what is the best and easiest , method of activating windows 7 at this point in time? (while still being reliable, updatable, and as permanent as possible). And could you point me in the right direction towards any further information about said method? Thanks. PS: the motherboard would be ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO if that makes any difference.
