comment Where can I legally download Windows 7 OEM ISOs?
Thanks for the information. Can you comment on the legality of this? The Internet seems to have conflicting information. Some say that, while it is technically possible to perform installation & activation like this, it is a license violation. Others say it's not. If you can give a bit more details than just a yes/no regarding the legal issue, that would be appreciated.

To add to the confusion Ars Technica addresses the same issue, but says it is legal.

@Sathya Perhaps that's the solution, then - use a Retail or VL image with the OEM key. If you can confirm that my presumption is wrong, and this is possible, please post it as an answer. I prefer confirmation from first-hand knowledge or experience though - references I've found thus far on the Internet seem to have conflicting information. (The most detailed and probably reliable answer I've seen is from PCWorld - they say it's technically possible but also technically a license violation.)

@Sathya I may be missing something, but aren't those all Retail or VL ISOs? I need OEM (System Builder) ISOs.

@edusysadmin I don't think that is it. I think the process went something like this: System goes to idle and task is triggered. 3 hours later, system comes out of idle. 4 hours after that (7 hours after first task trigger) system goes to idle again and the task re-triggers. The OP wants the task to only re-trigger at times >= +12 hours from the most recent trigger.

comment How do I install Skype on a domain computer so that anyone who logs in does NOT have to go through the initial config?
Might this be better off at Server Fault? Please don't cross-post. A moderator will migrate, if appropriate.

comment how to Specify which physical interface the VPN interface should use, Windows7
Even if you manage to do this, the VPN software may still force all data to go through the VPN - disallowing access to any local devices you're networked to. This done to prevent you from slurping data off to unauthorized devices (NAS, printer, etc.) or sharing your VPN link with unauthorized devices.

comment Running two wireless networks, with two different DHCP ranges (Virgin Media superhub woes)
Don't know why you're suggesting setting up dedicated DHCP servers or VLANs. The desired configuration is easily doable with most SOHO routers. The key is to treat them as what they really are - routers. Don't mess with trying to dumb them down in the least. See my answer for more detail.
