    Have software for students stopped supplying Win 7?



    They did announce that they were ceasing sales however they now list it again at a slightly higher price.

    Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium are not future proof and probably waste of money. Thats because they have a physical memory limit and for home premium its only 16gb.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa366778%28v=vs.85%29.aspx#physical_memory_limits_windows_7


    Like anybody will be needing > 16gb in the next couple of years..


    Mick...the rate its going. New motherboards are accepting 32gb ram from last year and even 64gb.
    You are welcome to purchase a product which impose a limit on you mate. It's your choice.
    Whereas me I prefer to have limit of ram which my motherboard allows me, or even a bit more. The other versions have 192gb. Hopefully the price of professional will come down when windows 8 gets released.


    That's totally irrelevant to most people. Most PCs are sold with between 3GB and 8GB of RAM and most people never upgrade their PCs. How many people run software that needs more than 8GB RAM, let alone 16 or more?

    By the way, do you only use Windows Server? All versions of Windows 7 limit you to only using 2-socket motherboards but Server will allow you to upgrade to a 4-socket motherboard! Or maybe you should use a version of Linux which is free and has no such restrictions?

    Truth is that most people won't need more than 16GB in the next 5 years, by which time new PCs and operating systems will be available.

    What would be a real waste of money is investing in "better" versions of Windows for features that you will never use. If I had done that I would have paid extra for XP Professional and Vista Ultimate and 7 Ultimate when I upgraded. The amount I've saved over the years by not paying for the features I don't need would easily pay for an upgrade if I do one day find I that ever need the extra facilities - which is unlikely!

    If you have your serial on the bottom of the laptop but no Windows installation disc, you can legally download Windows from here for free.

    Really?! That would be great! Sorry this is turning into a techie hep thread! How do I do that if I wipe the laptop?

    You need to download the correct version for your laptop, then burn the .iso file to disc. Run the disc and choose new installation. Just use your serial to activate it. Google will help you if you get stuck :)

    How many computers can i put this on ?


    Only 1 and it's worth noting the key locks to the motherboard, which means if buy a new motherboard you'll need to buy a new copy of Windows (although Microsoft can issue a new key if you prove your motherboard died).

    That's not my experience.

    I recently had to replace a 6-week old motherboard but kept the same hard drive and processor. It had Windows 7 OEM 64-bit Home Premium which needed to be re-activated but the on-line activation handled it just fine.

    Nor mine, I have only ever used oem on all my pc's over many years, the worst I have had to do is ring them, they give you a code and it works.Like someone else said, if they do ask for a reason just tell them your motherboard died.

    What is an N key? " Caution!!! Only use these together with a valid N key, regular keys won't work!"

    Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate will work fine. Its just 'Professional N' that requires an N key. No idea what that is though!

    Windows 7 N editions, available for customers who live in countries that are part of the European Economic Area, Croatia, and Switzerland, have been designed to give you most of the features of Windows 7—with the addition of choice.

    Windows 7 N editions come in five editions: Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate. For detailed information about what each edition includes, see Which one is right for you?

    The N editions of Windows 7 allow you to choose your own media player and software required to manage and play CDs, DVDs, and other digital media files. If you choose to use Windows Media Player 12, downloading it, along with related software, is free.

    I have a few copies of windows 7 professional retail if anybody wants them for £70 each

    Thanks guys. Looks like its something to do with the EC that had MSFT in their sights for including net browsers and media players in their OS a while back.

    or £133 for 1yr MS Technet - which gets 2 keys each of Win7 Home, Pro & N

    As long as you have the correct MSDN Win7 iso downloaded, the associated keys will continue to work/validate once the sub has lapsed.

    Also far more legal than pretending you're a student...
