Does anyone know what files are responsible for verifying the Windows 7 Edition when trying to boot 7 from a VHD??? Windows 7 boot manager will boot a vhd, even without a host os installed; however, if the windows version on the vhd is not enterprise or ultimate a licensing error will occur at boot time. What determines the version and then either accepts or rejects the boot??? I'd like to find out so that I could possibly spoof this in order to boot a lower version like home basic or home premium from the vhd. Any info greatly appreciated.
