    Hi, i've installed ultimate N but i'm finding that the ultimate oem keys are not working. i says that the key(s) wont work on this version.

    i'm a bit of a noob with win7 so if anyone could point me in the right direction i would appreciate it.

    There are no keys for Ultimate N. You can either wait for a key (How long is unknown), install Ultimate (best option) of use 'Remove WAT' or' Chew-WGA' (these do not activate windows they just stop it whining about not being activated).

    I really doubt you will ever see a slp key, it would require a major manufacturer to think there would be a large market for a pc with all the goodies MS has to offer but absolutely not want Media player? I would think that would be a very select market..

    yeah i guess i got carried away, someone posted it on a torrent site claiming you didnt need a product key and that it had a "cr**k" with it.

    oh well, another reinstall here we come. starting to get bored with windows already.

    might just stick with linux.

    thanks for the replies all.

    ps

    how long will it last in an unactivated state? presumably it will time out and lock me out at some point?

    instead of using a loader, what about using 'Remove WAT' or 'Chew wga'
    to keep the nags away for good, you wont need to get a key then

    You get 30 days trial period, this can be 'rearmed' twice resulting in a total of 90 days.

    Why don't you install Ultimate and try Daz's loader to activate.
    Daz has created the best loader out there, it is in a continuous state of improvement and he gives support in his thread. - http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/8632

    The best method is to modify the bios with a Slic v2.1 table, but this method is not for everyone and like loaders does not work on all computers.

    As a last resort there is the Chew-WGA or Remove WAT route. Personally I don't like these methods because they are not true activation, but the respective authors have put a lot of work into them and they generally work on machines which cannot have a modified bios.

    The effect that M$'s WGA or WAT will have on these methods is unknown because is has not been released yet for Win 7.

    thats the only real option for him, as there are no keys that will activate win 7 n. (afaik)
    the keys in the loaders are for the normal win 7, so they wont work

    Just install Windows 7 Ultimate xWHATSOEVER and uninstall all the crap you wanna have to be uninstalled using the "Turn Windows features on or off" option. That's more than the Win7 N

    Best dl an iso here on mdl (on top of this section), with the correct hashes.

    I thought it to be 30 days or something, till you get the nags.

    Just downloaded it. Thanks, looks good. VLC is also a video server. So to fully understand VLC is a different beast. BS Player pro is another one. Specially when internet connection is available to get subtitles automatic downloaded makes a good choice when the film is only in Norwegian. Ok, this is only an example of this.

    Come on guys i thought this thread was about windows 7 n version keys there are more than enough threads on here asking the differences between versions.

    Any way hopefully an SLP key will appear same as for vista. but that did take a long time.
