THAT $UX! so we really need to learn how to create an all-in-one win7 install disk & use kliu's win iso utilitys to modify your installer to take any product key & install ANY way possible then use win aio maker to combine multiple versions & or dump it to a thumdrive
after you start a clean install of windows and when you get to the main setup screen (OOBE) you can press Ctrl + Shift + F3 to enter audit mode.
From here you install drivers, updates, & any bundled software & then after you are done you can generalize the system to be imaged & shut down.

You can now use dism to capture the hard drive as a clean install.WIM image or a recovery partition or use the computer 
as is & as soon as you create your account & log in for the first time the installation will start the activation process

as can be seen from the above & since MS is providing the tools & instructions 
to do it, it is not illegal to make a single disk load multiple os versions

us geeks do this as a proof of our mastery of the elegant install/hack
 & so we don't have to carry 280 !@#$%^& disks!


you can install/use Windows 7 without license key for 30 days

but this may require a test/generic windows 7 product key its also possible To extend 30 To 120 Days using slmgr -rearm & hack it to allow 360 days by regediting the SkipRearm value to check how many days are left in your trial period & the number of rearm counts & number of days left type cmd in the search or run box, "Ctrl+Shift+Enter" to run the Command Prompt (cmd) as an Administrator type in the command slmgr /dlv & make note of the days left wait till you see 1 day left & then type cmd in the search or run box, run the Command Prompt (cmd) as an Administrator "Ctrl+Shift+Enter" to & type in slmgr -rearm OR sysprep /generalize slmgr.vbs –rearm rundll32 slc.dll,SLReArmWindows slmgr /rearm reboot & this will extend the trial period 30 more days each time but its designed to work for a maximum of 3 times for 30*3=90 days plus the original 30 days you had for a total of 120 days but then slmgr will set its SkipRearm setting to prevent more days. To reset the rearm count to 4 & extend 120 to 360 Days wait till the 119th day type regedit in the search or run box & run regedit as an Administrator "Ctrl+Shift+Enter" & go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SL for Vista or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform the right panel find the SkipRearm setting value & set to 1 if windows 7 stops you from altering the key you will have to delete SkipRearm start windows recovery console & type thease commands to reg load HKLM\MY_SYSTEM "%~dp0Windows\System32\config\system" reg delete HKLM\MY_SYSTEM\WPA /f reg unload HKLM\MY_SYSTEM After rebooting you get a message that its is not genuine type cmd in the search or run box, right click & run the Command Prompt (cmd) as an Administrator type in the command slmgr /dlv & then you need to reboot NOW The command "slmgr -rearm" should NOW only work for a maximum of 8 times 30X8=240 plus the previous 120 days = 360 days total but when the 30 day now 1 year trial period REALLY does expire, you need to really register it or erase all partitions & re-install Windows 7 & repeate this another year or try loading a tool called RemoveWAT that installs the latest Microsoft anti-piracy update & then disables it make a PC say it came with OEM "BIOS" files copied from another Big PC makers system that don't require activation C:\>cd ..
