    I downloaded Windows 7 7600 a month ago. I checked the MD5 Checksum. It appears to be a legit leak that wasn't tampered with. After upgrading (Motherboard, CPU, and Memory) I decided to install the 7600 build to find I am having trouble activating it.

    I have read that non of the Beta and RC keys will work. I did a small search online for a key and came up empty handed. I finally decided to fall back on 7229.

    I have seen people talk about running 7600. I am curious if anyone else has had trouble activated the 7600 build?

    Build 7600 is the finalized build, you know that. You can't activate it without a legitimately purchased serial that matches the exact type of installation it's tied to. ;)

    So you guy's with 7600 installed are you watching the 30 day activation counter?

    Retail is still over 30 days away.

    I do also reallize there is a three time couter reset. (slmgr.vbs –rearm).

    I'm not using the RTM, I'm staying legit and using the RC version until my copies of Windows 7 arrive next month.

    If it wasn't so much trouble to reinstall everything (and I had a legitimate source for the RTM install media), then I'd use the -rearm command. It's good for 120 days of use if you do it correctly. But I don't see the point since I will be doing a clean Windows 7 installation next month anyway.
