Purchase of Windows XP Pro

Q: Purchase of Windows XP Pro

Hi
I have looked at sites selling Windows XP Pro and XP Pro 64 bit and I
am confused. I eventually want to use the 64 bit version but I am
afraid I will not be able to use my printer or scanner for an
undetermined period of time because of the lack of drivers for 64 bit.
I have noticed a wide range of prices for the Pro but I am afraid of
some of them. I wonder if anyone knows what you should have to pay for
a legitimate version? Low but legal. (Full, OEM and Upgrade: what versions are
required to upgrade from.) I need to know as soon as possible if you
read this and can give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks In Advance

Jim Allen

PS I am in the process of ordering parts to build a computer so will be able to use OEM if that is what I decide on.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a laptop that is running Windows XP and have confirmed with the laptop manufacturer that I can upgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium. I searched online for purchasing Windows 7 Home Premium and found some sites that offer a Product Key, Download Link,
and License key. Is this an option I can use? If so, can it just simply be downloaded onto the laptop that has Windows XP running? 
Thank you.

I'm building a computer and will be installing Windows on it. The processor is 64-bit, so I'd be getting the 64-bit version of Windows. The only thing I'm able to find is an OEM copy. I don't know that I necessarily need to get the 32/64 bit copy of Windows.

A:Windows purchase question

Hello CB,

If you like, getting the Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Pro full copy would be better than an OEM copy.

I found one at Newegg below that was just $10 more than the OEM copy.

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine was asking how he can purchase over 30 copies of Windows 7. I'd love to point him to my local retailer but they don't offer discounts for bulk purchases.

I checked eBay out but those stories of sellers selling fake copies is not comforting at all.

Does anyone know where my friend can safely purchase legitimate copies?

A:Windows 7 Bulk Purchase

Hi there
A legal way to do this is with a VOLUME LICENSE (or VL) system. Contact Ms as they will STILL supply W7 via this route.

Large corporations do this and so they image a Windows system and deploy it on to their company computers without every one of them needing a separate key etc.

If you were buying 30 copies of Windows this would also be far cheaper than 30 RETAIL copies too.

(A trip to some outlets in the seedier parts of Shanghai might get you what you want - but I'd be a bit dubious as to the Source of the copies though).

Buying in volume by "non standard" outlets will only lead to grief in the end. You CAN use legitimate "Used copies" provided the originals are RETAIL (not OEM) and they have been wiped from the previous users machines - but I wouldn't go down that route for Bulk copies. For a single copy - nothing wrong with that if you can find a person who has upgraded to W8 and no longer needs their copy of W7.

Cheers
jimbo

Hi all,

Hope someone can help me! As a UK student I can from today purchase a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium [Upgrade] or Windows 7 Professional [Upgrade] 32/64-bit for ?30. This is a fantastic offer and one which I am hoping to take advantage of.

I have a laptop that came pre installed with Vista Business (there is a legitimate serial stuck to the base of the machine) but after months of frustration with the OS I wiped it and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit RC1, which I am delighted with.

The problem I now have is, if I purchase Windows 7 Pro Upgrade will I be able to install it? The website gives the option of a direct download for ?30 or a direct download plus something called a "Disk Kit" for ?39. If I have to do a clean install anyway, will it matter that I'm not running Vista or XP? Do I need the disk kit or does the download come in the form of an ISO which burns to DVD like the RC1?

All help gratefully received, thank you!

A:Can I purchase Windows 7 Upgrade?

I think one way or another, you would ultimately be able to install 7 using the upgrade version so I would go ahead and get that.

Yes, the download should be an ISO so once you download 7, just burn it to a DVD using a free app such as imgburn. No need to get the "disk kit."

On October 10 2016, I decided to purchase a genuine Windows 10 copy. While I was searching for the best deal, our Admin suggested to try eBay where I can get a great deal for price. It was my first level of trust in eBay as it was recommended by our Admin but he also did warn me about fake sellers and instead look for a seller who have some good feedback.
Some how a found a seller from eBay.co.uk who was selling keys for $8 USD and decided to make an order. Before that I raised questions to the seller to confirm whether its genuine and retail copy. The seller took some while to reply but came up with the reply that the license which is sells is genuine and retail. Unfortunately I couldn't make a deal because my Debit Card didnt support international transaction as well as PayPal integration. So with this failure I started peeping through eBay.in an Indian eBay platform where I could find some sellers.
zag521 was the seller who attracted me with his Rs. 1050 offer for a Windows 10 Pro Retail key.
I mailed the seller to confirm from him the details. He replied quick with positive answer. I decided to purchase the product. By the time I ordered, he removed his listings from eBay. I raised a mail for this act and he replied immediately with a new eBay.in product page. Yes it was genuine and purchased the product by making the payment.

Last year I purchased a retail copy of Windows 7 Home 64bit from what I thought was a legitimate seller. About a month ago, Windows begain saying it was illegal. After some troubleshooting and calling the Microsoft Activation Desk, I learned that the key had been blocked by Microsoft for software piracy.

I would like to make the install proper again (legally). I have put a lot of work into the install am hoping that I will not have to start over again...but I also would prefer to not have to pay hundreds of dollars.

From what I have learned, a retail OEM copy should allow me to just perform a key change without reinstalling, but copies are pretty expensive. Otherwise, the only other option seams to be is to purchase a digital license and do a complete reinstall.

Do I have any other options?

I have a few questions, first some background information. I'm building a new computer and I currently have a valid copy of XP. I'm wanting to put Windows 7 on my new PC though and I'm trying to buy Windows 7 Pro x64 (an upgrade, not OEM or full copy) online (I'm a student so I get a discount). I'm hoping to be able to just purchase the upgraded version and then do a "clean install" with the upgrade since I dont have Vista.

1. When I purchase the upgrade downloadable online (from the Microsoft Store), will it give me an ISO that I can burn?

2. If it is an ISO that I can burn, after I get it installed and go to put the license key in, do I put in my XP key or do I need a Win 7 key?

3. If the answer to the question above is Windows 7, does it give you a license key when you purchase the upgrade online?

4. If that answer is no, then how do I obtain my license key if I'm buying the downloadable version online and trying to do a "clean" install with the upgrade?

A:Question about Windows 7 Upgrade Purchase / Install

1. Yes, you should be given an .iso file or a link to a tool to create the .iso file.

2. No, typically the upgrades now require the previous OS to be installed. However, in our tutorials section, you'll find instructions on doing a clean install with the upgrade version.

3. You will be given a key, probably through e-mail after your purchase.

I have somebody who was asking me for help upgrading their Vista system to Windows 7. They bought the OEM copy of Windows 7 and instead need a copy of Windows 7 64-bit home premium upgrade. They intend to return it as luckily the packaging hadn't been opened.

The question is, where can I purchase a legitimate copy of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium, either Upgrade or Retail, whatever will allow the easy upgrade option instead of overwriting everything?

A link to a reputable site or mail-order business that ships to the Chicago Suburbs would be appreciated.

Oh, the computer in question does NOT have a touch screen, and Windows 8 is probably unsuitable for that system. It might work OK if she bought a touch screen, but does not want one. She's just interested in Windows 7 Home Premium.

All I can find on Amazon and Tiger Direct are OEM copies.

The first one came in clearly labeled Window 7 Professional 64b but the installation displayed Windows 7 Enterprise.    I immediately ordered another copy from a different vendor, the software came delivered with both 32b and 64b DVDs and is again
clearly labeled  Windows 7 Professional.  HOwever the installaion shows Enterprise.
Thirdly, I tried a in house Builders Copy - it says Enterprise that I had never noticed before.
Am I loosing my mind?    What gives??

Thanks
