Aside from this post having nothing to do with development...

"after all the Windows 7 hype I decided to install the RTM and give it a try. So I downloaded a copy of the 64 bit image and went to work"

Uh... either I'm missing something, or the author just admitted to piracy.

No piracy. You can legally install and use Windows 7 for 30 days before you must activate it, which requires a purchased license. Evaluating the product under the terms of the EULA is not piracy.

Yup, you can just leave the CD Key field blank, uncheck the activate automatically box and click Next. Then you have 30 days to find out if you like it or not.

Ha! I didn't know about the Window Key + capitalized P character command. Good write up.
