    I just noticed it while playing with my Vista and 7 isos.....

    Well, after running Windows Update, it creates a log in the Windows folder named "WindowsUpdate.log". It records some key-specs of ur pc..... here is a snapshot from my log:

    Code:
    2011-04-27    18:01:02:895     860    5c4    Misc      = Process: C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe

    2011-04-27    18:01:28:572     860    5c4    Report      * OS Version = 6.1.7600.0.0.65792

    But if u open the install.wim of Windows 7 SP1 English iso (en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x86_dvd_619077) and navigate to the 5\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log, u can see the following:

    Code:
    2010-11-20    12:58:54:546     984    ef0    Misc      = Process: D:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe

    Seems that Microsoft loves Dell very much ;).... and they install Windows in D: instead of C: :p

    Hmm.... not always.... here is the snap-shot from Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 Premium:

    Seems that the policy is:
    Client OS -> in D: ; Client Machine -> Dell
    Server OS -> in C: ; Server Machine -> HP

    Assumption will right, when somebody post from any other server os. I dont have any.... :(

    When creating .WIM's MS advises installing on the D:\ drive.
    As it avoids any trouble with the 'boot' files/partiton.

    Although, it looks that could be just for clients. :)

    From install.wim in both cases.

    Here's some interesting data from ThinPC after installation and activation (DAZ loader fails with "unsupported OS" on VM in VirtualPC2007):

    ThinPC activated using slmgr /ato a few hours ago. Running in VirtualBox.

    Powershell commandline:

    get-wmiobject softwarelicensingproduct -filter "LicenseStatus='1'"

    View attachment ThinPCLicense.zip

    Mods: can we have a ThinPC sticky please?

    Good to hear this.....

    BTW, Thin PC is now at RC stage... ur activated with the timebased eval license; see ur attached file -> "Description : Windows Operating System - Windows(R) 7, TIMEBASED_EVAL channel"

    See here for details -> http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...s-thin-clients?p=427981&viewfull=1#post427981

    As I said in Windows Loader thread, DAZ's loader only support it, when an OEM:SLP key will leak, which is possible only when Thin PC will RTMed.
