    Yes (but only if the SHA-1 checksums match the ones listed here).

    If you have volume you should be using enterprise anyway otherwise you ill be n a world of hurt later when you try to manage suff like the start screen which you can't do with pro, only enterprise. Bitlocker is also only on Enterprise I think.

    That assumes that you have SA. Having a volume license doesn't necessarily give you access to SA stuff.

    But if you do have SA, go ahead and fill your boots

    You'll be able to get the Enterprise editions under the Open and Select/Select Plus programs next month.

    Isn't the iso pretty much useless without the product key? From what I remember you only get 3 days to activate before windows becomes useless (mind you some people think windows is useless even after activation!)

    Sign up for a dreamspark? Think they are still going and should have the ISO you need.
