Ok, as a MSDN Subscriber, i just got access to the long awaited Microsoft Windows 7.
The filename of the RTM build for Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition is tagged ‘en_windows_7_ultimate_x64_dvd_X15-65922.iso’ for the x64 (64bit) and ‘en_windows_7_ultimate_x86_dvd_x15-65921.iso’ for the 32bit version.
To install Microsoft Windows 7 i took an USB stick, made it bootable, copied to content of the ISO on the stick and installed it from there.
Here are some screens i captured during the installation..
Booting from the source media

You don’t have to enter a serial/PID key. You can evaluate Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate / Enterprise, whatever edition for 30 days. After this you can use a trick to ‘rearm’ the software protection.
