Does anyone know what updates I shouldn't install if I don't want to have genuine/authentic problems?

agreed. don't download that or the "Genuine advantage authentication tool" it's attached to on the Microsoft website. Activators will pass WGA tests tho.

the 1033 update kills alot of the "pre activated" copies of windows.
(where you leave the cd key blank and it auto installs one for you.)
That being said, people have released Win 7 with SP1 installed.
I havn't yet checked but I would assume this update has been put in...
My copies of windows with SP1 have RemoveWAT installed at end of installing windows, so you don't see it happen, but its there...
As to what updates catch that out, not sure yet.

Your first problem is that your installing Windows 7. :)
If you want to legitimize your copy of 7 without using remove wat or using a loader, I suggest you check out some bios mod sites and insert a slic table into your bios. This way windows will think your authenticated and legit and you will never have to dread the cumbersome message you get, when Windows tells you your not legit.
Personally I hate windows 7. Its bulky full of glitter and a waste of HD space. XP or 2k are not bad. But remember these are only my opinions.
I have seen a table that will tell you what versions of windows will expire. I think ultimate goes in 2015 and Enterprise is good till 2020. If I find the table again I will come back here.
