    I downloaded the EVAL versions of Windows 7 Enterprise

    7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_enterprise_en-us_EVAL_Eval_Enterprise-GRMCENEVAL_EN_DVD
    7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_enterprise_en-us_EVAL_Eval_Enterprise-GRMCENXEVAL_EN_DVD

    Has anyone have a delta to convert these to RTM or VL? or can I just change the key in the installed OS, to the corresponding key?

    My company is in the process to go over to a enterprise agreement it seems, and I want to be proactive and get all my software / facts in order.

    Thanks,

    Just use this on the eval version... its just the key that determines the licensing. The eval one has a retail trial key installed & one extra service that monitors the eval period. After you install a KMS key or a MAK key, that service automatically will stop.

    Also, the images you mentioned are w/o SP1. Try to download the SP1 integrated images. I think these new images are now available in MS download center.

    :)

    (OP)
    Excuse my ignorance, correct me if i am wrong, but if i understand that process correctly, and my company has valid KMS/MAK activation keys, and i change the product key to one of those, it will activate with no problem and the trial service will stop monitoring?

    or

    is it more a case of the this makes the "trial service" think that the trial product key is a full version one?

    Thanks,

    Exactly so... :)

    But those are images w/o SP1, so you need higher deployment time. If you download images with SP1 then its better ;)

    LostED, thanks alot for the info as well as the files.

    Am i correct if in saying that your product key determines your license type? so even though this is the MSDN version, if we get VLK's from the company, it should/would work with this ISO?

    Yes... only the product key matters, nothing else :)
