I have a technet plus account and was wondering how many of my machines i could try Windows 7 on?
I don't want to try it on a older machine i have if i run out of keys and can't try it on my main machine. I need to clonezilla that first so i don't lose anything. Wouldn't mind seeing how fast it runs on a laptop either if the keys allow.

Looks like I will have busy time this weekend as my boss has just given me access to our TechNet account

Lordy, it runs quite well on an old Acer 3600GT - I am shocked !!

Don't enter the key when you install it - leave it blank - you will then have 30 days.

my mate at uni has just told me his MSDNAA account only has the RC.... Are Uni accounts going to get the RTM too?

I think that it depends on what level of MSDNAA he has.

is there a way of checking via the web frontend what version it is?

I've read that it is active for users of MSDN AA such as myself, only, we have to wait unitl the head of our university, that being, the person who manages it for the university puts it up. Chances are many staff will be only holiday so people like me will have wait.

should say in his subscription section.
It would be either
Developer, Designer or High School. Being a university my bet would be on Developer.

only options on the menu are
Profile is just about changing password...
Software has vvarious bits, 2003 server, 2008, visio, access, visual studio, blah
Possibly the originofsymmetry could be right and it needs to be activated by the admin from the uni

Wondering if I will email him, he was none to quick at getting the RC up.
