Question Technet Software..

got the technet membership

downloaded iso's of winodws 7 home premium X64
and windows 7 Ultimate X64

my question is, these 2 different versions have different features. i was wondering how the iso's could be EXACTLY the same size.

sorry if this seems silly.

and thx for any answers.

i think the iso's are all the same, it's the keys that define which version is installed.

I believe this is correct, it would be smart of Microsoft to do this as it would limit the amount of unique copies of windows they would have to create/ship. Locking/preventing certain features from being installed based on the cd-key would be the easiest/most economical route.
