@joecool: Yes, it would appear so, since it didn't ask me for activation, and it passed OGA.

It includes the following office programs:

Microsoft Office Excel 2007
Microsoft Office Groove 2007
Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007
Microsoft Office OneNote 2007
Microsoft Office Outlook 2007

Microsoft Office Publisher 2007
Microsoft Office Word 2007

It passes because it's the Enterprise edition.
The Enterprise edition of Office is still using VLK 1.0 so it doesn't need activation.

The Enterprise/Business of Vista uses a new VLK 2.0 so it does require activation.

Here is some info on that, http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/reso ... fault.mspx

cheers andy! much faster than a torrent, and probably faster than i can get it from connect (when it is released).

That AIO disc sounds sweet, now why couldn't Microsoft put x86/x64 on one disc?

A DVD that contains both x86 and x64 versions of Vista on one side is impossible to make IMHO. 1) There's not enough space unless you take a DL DVD, and 2) how would they do the booting thing? An x86 DVD will boot on x86 and x64 systems, but an x64 DVD won't boot on x86 systems.

About the Office 2007 thing: Great it's already on the server! :)

Because they want to get as much money as possible, so they want people to buy both, if they want them.

It's a DVD5 (not DL).

Some files are compressed because it wouldn't fit otherwise, but nothing has been stripped and it is still possible to use the recovery tool etc. like usual.

If you read the .nfo it says that it is not possible to start the install of x64 within the x86 edition of Windows.

All is taken care of and the release is working fine :)

Oh, I seem to have missed that. If there is already a combined bootable 32/64 DVD, forget what I said. Would be interesting to see how it's been done.

It's done nearly the same way as the XPSP2 All In One that WinBeta released in 2004.

That's not my question. My question is how did they manage to combine a 32bit and a 64bit OS, both bootable, on a single DVD? :shock:

They made a custom autorun that you can run from within Windows, and also a custom boot menu so you can select either 32Bit or 64Bit.

Ah, thanks! The custom boot menu sounds like a great idea! :D Would love to take a look at it and find out how it's done. :D

I've come across a workaround that seems to reset activation (apparently up to 4 times, not indefinitely), so that if you did it every 29 days you would get 120 days before you had to activate or apply a crack. I just tried it on my 1-day old install and it set it back to 30 days from 29. I haven't extensively tested this though, so no guarantees!

It's just one command that you enter in Start > Run - no crack or anything - is it legal to post it here for people to try?

That workaround will be possible to do 3 times and haas been known since pre-RC1 builds.

By using one of the 3 cracks I've uploaded to the "upload2" account you can use it until june 2007 which is just as good.

there are no cracks that actually work. stop bothering with cracking and buy the thing when it comes out.
