Eager to have a look at what all the fuss over Windows 7 is about, I have downloaded a leeked RTM version of Windows 7 via Newsgroups. However, one of the .RAR files was faulty in that because it was split/broke, I ended up not getting the whole 52MB chunk of the rar sequence (it was part04.rar).

However, the Quickpar tool managed to fix it with the 'Scratching' process.

Now normally when I have to do this, there is only one block missing. But in this instance there was a whole .rar file missing. But nonetheless, Quickpar 'repaired' the .rar sequence and I now have an image file of Windows 7.

What I want to know before installing this is whether or not I will have a fully complete and functioning copy of Windows 7 or whether Quickpar has merely pathced over a great big gaping hole (i.e. loss of important data) in order to allow the .rar files to extract its image?

Thanks in advance for any helpful or knowledgable replies.

You really should be asking these types of questions within your NZB forum. Not really allowed to talk about pirated software on these forums, and that is pirated and not even retail available. Builds prior to 7600 are OK to talk about because those are beta's. The 7600 build is the RTM, so... no talkie! I'm surprised this isn't locked/deleted already.

So, getting the RTM via a Newsgroup account is pirating?

@ Johnnyfive Really, I asked the question because I have no idea.

Either way, we cannot discuss anything to do with trying to get any pirated software to work or otherwise.
