quote from softwareforstudents - "This version of Windows 7 ships as an upgrade edition. It is NOT possible or permitted to perform a clean install with this product. "
whether this is true I dont know , although a bargain for those who don't mind not doing a clean install.

As far as I'm away you can do a clean install, it just checks to see if you have a previous windows OS, then you can choose to delete it before install.

From reports I've heard, as long as you've got a previous version of Windows you can do a clean install using an upgrade disc. If you've got a linux machine, you can't

Bought this a while ago clean install or update. Be careful as I found that my printer, tv dongle and pda were not Windows 7 compatable, so run the check first! One thing to note is that Software4 students take ages to deliver ,about a month - Pugh were a few ponds more but came in about a week!

Only if you have a .ac e mail (I have lost count of how many times has this been said when windows 7 is posted). This offer is open to anyone with kids with any e mail address!

This has been posted before.

yes it has been posted but this is a new deal from the mail i received. I also though the MS offers were for Win 7 Home premium not pro. I think this is an ace price for PRO!

I'm selling one of these discs in the trade/deal section, bought for a vista basic laptop and it won't let you just upgrade to pro from vista basic, would have to do a full install and frankly I can't be bothered! £30 inc p and p

i bought the premium version a little while back to upgrade from a legit vista, i performed a clean install and it didnt ask me for a vista key so i'm assuming unless it detected a vista install already on the hard drive prior to install it's the same as a full one?
#16
I also bought the upgrade from them but for 64-bit Ultimate (to upgrade from an OEM Vista 64-bit Ultimate). I did an "in-place" install that took between eight and fourteen hours (I went to bed when it hung for over two hours) and in the morning it asked me for the licence number from the package and completed. I have to say that it's a hell of a lot more stable than Vista and I'm really glad I did it!
#17
Pity it's just an upgrade.
#18
if its an upgrade, you can just do a clean install, leave the serial number blank, then when it asks for activation, install it again but just upgrae the the current installation and it works
#19
Good deal, but university students (or anyone with an ac.uk email address) should remember they can get if for £30 direct from Microsoft. http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-uk/default.aspx

Do you really think they'd let you install on multiple pcs, else you could share it with friends and family etc.

I found on a well known auction site

Windows 7 Home Premium Retail FULL Version Product Key £14.41 is that any good? or £12.52 for ultmate lol

im thinking of getting this for £36 and then paying £14 for other pcs as i know that the disk is not locked to each code.

this has been posted so many times now, Plus students can get it cheaper on the Microsofts own website so long as they have an email address ending in ac.uk

I have Home premium 32 bit and 4gb ram.
Would it be worth getting this to be able to use the last 1gb of ram that the 32bit doesn't "see"?

As long as you have 64bit hardware compatible then I dont see why you shouldn't. 64bit is an improvement from 32 bit but not every machine has 64 bit components.

Now a question from me - if I install from XP and I have Microsoft office and everything installed on it, can I keep them for windows 7?

Cheers:thumbsup:

You would HAVE to do a clean install, with an upgrade for the 64 bit version. You cannot do a 'quick upgrade' of a 32bit version of windows to a 64 bit version. In other words you have to backup your stuff and reinstall everything going from 32 to 64bit

There is a clause that says you can install the professional retail version of Office on a PC and a laptop. But Windows is different, and you will need a separate license for each machine. Come on, 35 pounds is a really good deal! And if you want to spend less, you can use Linux...

I think XP -> Win 7 does not support in place upgrades. You could go via Vista, in which case the applications are kept, but I am not sure that is worth the effort. Just go 64bit - it works really well now.

im happy.. i managed to get windows 7 ult key for £12 with download link from MS..

i didnt know that if you prebuy loads of keys u pay less for them lol.. are they allowed to resell them?

so i guess these people are doing the same.. but sending a cd wth the key?

So is this company reliable as I'm interested in ordering.

I bought Office 07 from them on the student deal but they took perhaps 2 or 3 weeks to deliver and I was chasing them on the phone ever couple of days after a week. They said they had stock issues but I reckon that was bluff and what they were doing was to get in orders and then order themselves rather than carrying stock. Came through in the end for a good price so I'd probably buy again if I was not in a rush and the price was so competitive as to offset their tardiness in delivery schedules.

Let me guess, ebay? Well what you will have bought won't be legit, so don't be surprised if your copy of Windows fails the genuine check further down the line.

I've also been tempted by these cheap 'key only' deals but from researching into it Microsoft doesn't sell 'licence keys only' so what you're buying is in fact either a key assigned to another user, or a enterprise or developer key that shouldn't be resold (and if found to have been could be withdrawn - as has happened in the past).

This student deal is a legit one, and given so cheap, surely worth the extra? Heck, it's virtually valid for all non-business uses too - if you've not got kids of school/college age and aren't a student yourself then just sign up to the local college for a short evening course (even free ones) and you're now officially eligible!

if your uni is part of msdn win 7 pro is free :thumbsup:

so if i called ms and ask for support they will refuse then as it is a retail one you shoudl get support.

Yes, many have used before although some have encountered delays. There actually are other resellers too (eg. Pugh.co.uk) since it's a Microsoft deal. And don't forget if you're a student (or staff) with an .edu or .ac.uk email address Win 7 Pro is avalable direct from Microsoft for only £30.

I agree that £35 per licence is a good deal even with multiple PC's, but are you allowed to use this offer multiple times? Or is it more like '1 licence per student/household'?
