This question already has an answer here:
I have switched laptops recently, and I decided I want to make the switch from Windows to Linux (and have gone with Ubuntu for now).
I have the "old" SSD from my previous machine, which has a Windows 7 installation on it. I'm trying to install Windows 7 on VMWare so I can run some of the programs that are only available on Windows (that Wine can't handle).
I also have my Windows 7 key, but I don't know which "edition" it is (Home vs. Premium vs. Ultimate, etc.)
The furthest I've gotten is looking at
explorer.exe's attributes to find this:
Product Version: 6.1.7601.17567
But I couldn't find what that means.
I have the SSD mounted and am able to read/access the old filesystem. How can I find out what Windows edition I need to install on VMWare?
