    Assume I have an Win7 Installation CD.

    How can I find out NOT by installing it but from the files on this CD..

    ....which EXACT version it is (OEM, SystemBuilder, ReleaseCandidate, Full, Home, Ultimate,...)

    ....which language it is (english, spanish, german, multilanguage,...)

    ....Which built (sub)version it is

    I expected a readme.txt or similar file which EXACTLY describes this but did not found it.

    I have not utilized Windows 7. But I can say that in Windows XP and Vista,
    you can simply right-click on "My Computer" from the start menu or desktop
    and click "Properties." It should show the operating system, service pack
    number, etc.

    i thought we were assuming you had a CD and wanted to know about that.

    When you insert the CD, what is the volume label of the CD?
