    In December I downloaded an MS EVAL win 8 eterprise for an ethical hacking course. The course said it could be rearmed. But it now says licence expired and won't rearm. Do they have to be rearmed within a specific time frame? I was sick in December and Jan and only turned it on again this week. It is a virtual in VMWare.

    It set up as i wanted and I do not want to have to make a new one

    What is the exact file name of the iso you're using? Name and sha-1 please.

    And please show us a screenshot of the registry where you've modified the 2 keys?

    IWhen I went to make the screenshot of the registry i found the changes were not saved. The screenshot is how i had them and have themmagain. How do I save. And where do i get the sha-1. It just says win 8.1 iso and i will have to try to recall where i got it. Downloaded a lot experimenting. I am using TV shows names for the different virtual windows hence David Banner

    Please, i ask for a filename and sha-1 and get only a SHA256 checksum, why?

    It's neither:

    OK

    How did you get the sha256 hash? MSFT normally uses sha-1 hash, and that hash can be used to search for the iso it's from, not many people post sha256 hash.

    But still no filename.
