Windows 7 Home Premium RC


Recommended Posts

By now most people will know that Windows 7 RC has been released, but you will also notice that you can only get the Ultimate version. So if you plan to use only the Home Premium when its released (final), then there is no way to test this version right?

I found a way which unlocks all the other versions of Windows 7 RC!

Windows 7 Starter Edition RC

Windows 7 Home Basic RC

Windows 7 Home Premium RC

Windows 7 Professional RC

Windows 7 Ultimate RC

Windows 7 Enterprise RC

I saw this on an article online:

Secret: Unlock Extra Editions

The ISO image available for download from MSDN, TechNet, and Microsoft’s public download site contains Windows 7 Ultimate edition only. If you’re evaluating the operating system to see how it fits in your home or office, you might want to try another, less expensive edition to see whether its mix of features is acceptable.

To unlock those other editions, you need to follow the same procedure as in the previous item, copying the files from the Windows 7 DVD to a local folder. Open the Sources folder, find the file Ei.cfg, and delete it.

You can now run Setup from the folder you just modified. Be sure not to enter a product key when prompted (your beta product key is good only for Ultimate edition) and choose the edition you want to install when prompted.

So having Windows 7 Ultimate DVD and product key for each edition is like having all 6 DVDs of Windows 7.
