    Someone (don't remember who) said that it worked, I'm currently running a test about that right now, but I think you better ask in Daz's thread:

    Program based Windows 7 loader

    And you should install the official Beta SP1, since there are a lot of non-official versions that could mess up activation.

    After asking the other day if SP1 was anything more than a wrapup of updates I researched and found it is really a service pack aimed squarely at Windows Server 2008 R2.

    I'm one windows 7 user that won't bother installing it as a service pack - I may consider downloading an official integrated M$ iso when they appear but it appears SP1 will offer nothing to 7 users that can't be obtained via Windows Update.

    Why bother ????

    Oh, that's right - boredom with 7 has set in already and SP1 offers that "something new" fix that lots of users seem to require.

    It is. I installed it yesterday, but removed it today due to the water mark at the lower right corner. Alas, windows update put it back on, as I did register it...at least the watermark is no longer visible.

    i read it has an expiry date and will need to uninstall the beta then install the official one when released.so might as well wait for the official final release.

    Every beta Service Pack has expiry date even since XP, that is why you should only install on test machines or have backup image of your system or use Virtual machine.
