Recently I built myself a new machine (Zotac NM10-A-E with Atom D510 and 2GB RAM) with the intention of running WHS and backing up the boot drives of all nine computers in my house. Went with 2011 over the first version because it has better support for restoring drive images to 64 bit OSes. I understand there are no leaked SLP keys for WHS 2011 as of yet, so there's no way of activating properly using SLIC mods/hacks. Right now my machine is using the last version of Chew7 before it was converted to HAL9000 and so far everything seems just fine, and apparently the newest version of Chew7 has been greatly improved since System properties shows my machine as activated. My question is this - which WAT-removing crack program does the best job of stopping the annoying non-genuine nags from popping up and screwing with my setup? I originally built this setup with the idea of making occasional backups, but have been so impressed with it that I have decided to make nightly backups of all of my machines and plan to start relying on WHS 2011 more and more. There are a LOT of conflicting answers regarding WAT-disabling cracks though. I am aware that you can buy WHS 2011 dirt cheap now (currently Newegg has it for $43 USD as long as you use the NEWCUSTOMER10 code with a fresh account) but I just want to make sure that my WHS box doesn't boot improperly one day and lock me out of my HD backups especially at a point in time when I need it. I know I should just buy it and shell out the $43, but I keep holding out just in case an OEM SLP key gets leaked. In the mean time though, I just need to make sure I'm relying on the best method of keeping the box going until a key is found.
