Bump for Spring
There is nothing criminal about you using Windows 7 OEM. Nothing. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that the license cannot be transferred to another PC down the road. Your scenario is incredibly paranoid and extravagant.OEM and Retail are two different versions, at least as far a activation goes. In order to use OEM, I'm supposed to be a system builder. I'm afraid of doing anything illegal. Were I to get caught and convicted in court, the computer would be the least of my problems. I could lose my disability check, if convicted of a felony. I've seen these OEM versions installed before (in XP Pro). The validation tool automatically installs upon updating, but you can block the checker and ask not to show the update again. All that you receive are critical updates. I don't want to run a system that way, and I most certainly don't want to go to prison and lose my social security check. I'm permanently disabled and don't need or want any trouble. OEM keys are for large corporations that build computers (Dell, HP) and system builders. I know there's a deal where they send you a program or key with a broken power cord or memory chip. That's not for me.
Thrax, I made that post way before I knew what was going on. I do now know that an OEM install lives and dies with the computer it's installed on. In fact, I've never done a Windows 7 OEM install, except reinstalling my own. I have done many XP Pro OEM installs, but things were a little different then. That's what I was afraid of, things aren't the same as they were 5 to 6 years ago. And I didn't know if you could do an OEM install of 7, the way you could do with XP & Win 2K. That post was made a while back, and I do agree with you, I was paranoid. But then again, I'm a walking pharmacy, drugs creates this effect, especially the amount I consume for pain. The amount of medicine I take would knock a horse out. Plus, paranoia is a side effect of a couple of the several meds I consume.There is nothing criminal about you using Windows 7 OEM. Nothing.

Thanks, a family member wants to do a repair install and thinks she fubared her recovery partition. And of course never created a repair disk.Yes, you should be able to use the product key for the OEM as long as it is for the correct version, ie, Home Premium key for Home Premium OEM install.
Go to this thread and you can install 7 Basic in either 32 or 64-bit.hey sir.....what about the win7 home basic.........i got it preinstalled on my pc.......
Because the ISO's in the links are not ours to edit. The ISO's are images of Windows 7 install media that have not been tampered with in anyway. You have the links to the original media and the instructions to modify the download, feel free to do as you please. For security reasons it must stay this way.Thx for these links! One question though: why are all these different versions posted, while you need only two of them (x86 and x64), and just remove the ei.cfg?
Just to be sure that all .iso's are equal
