Wow! that was fast and we all saw it coming! Windows 7 has been cracked already, 85 days prior to its official consumer launch in October. The crack in question comes from OEM-SLP product key and OEM certificate, retrieved from boot.wim of Lenovo’s leaked Windows 7 Ultimate ISO.

Piracy has always been a major problem for Microsoft as its products are widely pirated in markets such as China and the company has every right to try and stop it. But unfortunately, Microsoft’s WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) anti-piracy efforts in Windows 7 has been defeated again and this time through a leaked OEM DVD coming from Chinese Forum.

Warning: Some of the members at PCBETA Forum have fried their motherboards going through the cracking process while most of them have got it to work perfectly. Do it on your own risk.

Software piracy is a crime. By ignoring copyright law, you are misusing intellectual property of Microsoft. Lots of hard work has gone into making Windows 7 what it really is today. Windows 7 is worth the money, buy the real genuine stuff.
