how do you get past the activation to esperience the two-hour bsod?
i've activated windows 7 with a vista business key i have and it works perfectly. when i fast forward the date, however, windows un-activates itself and won't accept the installation id i get from microsoft, even though it's the same exact one as before. what am i doing wrong?

Firstly, if you don't want to have that limit you should just try and live with the older date if you really want to use a beta. Otherwise you should stick with Vista or something until 7 is released as RTM.

So, you want to get the BSOD?
Alrighty then, here is what you have to do:

Set your BIOS to a date after this build expires (for example: the current date)

Boot Windows 7 and log on.

From the activation screen, bring up help and support (you might have to search for it a bit).

From help and support search for task manager. Then click the link in the help document that opens it.

Then click File > New Task > (then type) explorer.exe

Make sure you don't close the activation window as if you do, it will log you right back out. You should now be able to experience the 2hr blue screen.

Affirmative

At least to my knowledge, no one on this forum has successfully/tried cracking it.
