Re: Microsoft already allows download of Windows 7

davidp231 is 100% correct. the key OEMs actually use (so if you recover it using produkey or similar) to instal windows will not activate using an oem windows disk. you have to have the key on the coa, its different to the (vlk im assuming) key actually used to install windows by the manufacturer.
