I'm working on developing an image based on the RC code for use in our company for application testing.
I would like to use the Professional edition of Windows 7 as opposed to the Ultimate edition, but the product key I have does not work.
Is there an RC product key that I can plug in for the Professional edition? I could just leave the key out entirely, but then that hangs the deployment and coming out of sysprep it prompts for the key.
You can try out alternate editions of Windows 7 using the steps outlined here , but Microsoft is not currently providing product keys for any edition other than Ultimate, and has announced no plans to do so prior to Windows 7's commercial release.-Alex
