    I'm confused. What's the difference and/or advantage to have these keys?

    Furthermore, is this legal or is this something that Microsoft could invalid in a couple of weeks.

    Finally, what language packs are available?

    Thanks :)

    Interesting find
    We all got the Ultimate ISO that M$ released.
    What if you enter the Home Premium key during the installation of 7 ?

    Do you have a Home Premium key?
    I tried to install Home Premium with a Ultimate key - didn't work.
    I'd love to try Home Premium - but no key.

    So they do - guess I'll install it and see what I end up with.

    ETA - I installed it, ended up with Home Premium - then went into the SOURCES folder, deleted the ei.cgf file, re-ran setup and was given the choice of installing Home Basic, Home Premium, Ultimate, or Business - just like the original 7000 public beta iso. - SO - based on this experience I've decided the only difference is the default version for install - your views may vary.

    Doesn't have either of those - haven't activated it yet. May use one of the patches, or may wait to see if a key turns up somewhere - have 30 days.

    Is it good or bad they are not in Home Premium?

    It's good if you want to tightly control your 'puter. (Security Policy & Group Policy editors)

    What's wrong with just using the Ultimate edition?


    Also, they're not giving out keys anymore in the "Windows Ecosystem" connect beta program.
