    Just a quick few noob questions that can be answered in like 1 minutes.

    1) Using the methods on MDL, whats the most permament way to activate Windows 7?

    2) I'm under the impression that you can rearm windows 7 4 times after that no more. Is this true?

    Thanks

    I have, and it brings up posts but not threads so you have to look threw 100's of threads :p

    Also, when i download one of the windows 7 iso's namely: SP1-U-dvd-ISO-x86-x64-Final-MSDN-(-N-All-editions) (the sticky up top)

    Do I have to provide a key to get it past install?

    If you use one of the above methods mentioned by tcntad, you should skip entering the key during installation...

    No, you can simply press/click "Next" without entering a key however you might want to untick automatically activate Windows online before you proceed as this for this try to activate your copy of Windows three days after you log on for the first time. You can always activate once you're ready.

    How do you extract the files from Windows-7-ENTERPRISE-with-SP1-U-dvd-ISO-x86-x64-Final-MSDN-(-N-All-editions)/page3, i rename them as .7z and download 7zip but it says cant open the archive

    @ phyregold00, forget enterprise edition if you want permanent activation. Loader does not activate enterprise edition.
