Generic Product Key for Professional Edition?

    Question

  • 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.

    Thanks

  • mmarable,

    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.
