Win2000 Region Change

Quote from InMatrix:
It appears that the multi-hash techniques previously discussed may not have been implemented due to some other issues (however, they may be restored in later service packs). If you DO have a region free drive, then the following is true :

When you install clean Win2k Pro you have region 1 set and 1 change left...After one change - that's it... locked.

However, load REGEDT32 and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft. You should see a strange looking key (e.g =jjl) as the first entry... Delete the entire key. Reboot machine and.... you're back to region 1 with 1 change left.... Works every time...try it and see."

This may or may not work, and if it does, it's only with unlocked drives. Use this information at your own peril.
