a new way to activate Windows Seven Milestone 1 Build 6519 without the control panel or system properties breaking
1)Set your BIOS clock back to 2nd December 2007 (or any significant date back)
2)Run the Windows 7 setup and install without a key and select Ultimate when asked
3)After install go to System Properties and click on change product key (Right Click Computer >> Properties)
4)Enter the product key included (6F2D7-2PCG6-YQQTB-FWK9V-932CC) any activation errors just ignore them
5)Run the vistaactivation.exe file (the vista developer one)
6)Wait for confirmation and then press Finish to reboot.
don't know if it works for vista because i got a genuine copy but hope i didn't break any rules. rapidbolt should stop the link from getting deleted and i have heard back from people that my method doesn't activate windows seven sometimes but will try to fix this as soon as i made my Vista SP1 disc lol
The BA copy of Windows 7 build 6519 activated perfectly per the instructions and .exe
Thank you very much skywalker06 for making my windows 7 testing life a bit easier.
After hitting the Finish button & the PC restarted I got a black screen with this window in the middle, I hit the close button the PC startup resumed
ASUS: K8V Deluxe
Athlon 64 3000+ w/ 512K (L2 cache)
2 X 512 Corsair PC 3200
GeForce FX5900 /128 MB

OS’s: Quad booting with XP x86, Vista x86, Server 2008 & Windows 7 M1
This is just an vista activator that also works on windows 7, it uses the populair OEM emulation method to trick the activation system.
I don't think this is legal, cause it also works on windows vista.
but it be great for the timebomb to be removed as we won't be worried about the expiry date and windows update will work too lol
This doesn't remove the timebomb, just activates it so you can use it fully for as long as you want ->As long as you keep your bios date set back <- Windows Update will never work for this build because its already an old beta and not to mention that MS almost never updates os betas over windows update anyway.
