You do realize that the link you provided is for an OEM version of Windows 7 that for Dell computers?

IIRC, those only work with Dell computers. They don't work the same way as the OEM system builder pack.

Might I suggest the following instead:

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MV2MG0"]Amazon.com: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Family Pack (3-User): Software[/ame]


I now it $24 over $100 and that it's Home Premim, BUT, you can install in up to 3 computers at the same time.

If you really want a cheap version of Windows 7 professional, you could also go for:

http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/windows/buynow/default.aspx == $29 for Windows 7 Pro!!!!! eek.gif You need to have an *.edu email address though. frown.gif

Not really. If you install it to your HDD without entering the upgrade key, then alter a registry key and activate with the upgrade key, MS will accept the install.

Not necessarily. You just use method 2 from this link: http://www.winsupersite.com/article/windows-7/clean-install-windows-7-with-upgrade-media

Tried it numerous times with the upgrade media without anprevious O.S. installed and it works. Fact of the matter is, I've also called MS support a couple of times and they do use this workaround. Technically an automated version of it that's given to you through the Microsoft Diagnostic Tool, which is a built in utility in Windows Vista and 7 computers. cool.gif

You may not want to get Home Premium if you ever decide to use more than 8GB of RAM.

Professional and up can handle 192GB but Home Premium and under only use 8GB or less (x64).

Just to correct you there, max limit for Home Premium is actually 16GB. smile.gif
