This upgrade edition of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium can be installed directly over Windows Vista, or as a clean install with either Windows Vista or XP. The latter will require you to back up your files, and reinstall your applications. The upgrade package is not compatible with Windows 2000.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium is a revolutionary new operating system that simplifies and greatly enhances your home computing experience. Full of refinements and performance improvements, this OS release supports the latest PC hardware developments such as multi-core processors and 64-bit computing. This really is an attractive upgrade for your PC!

After two years of customer research to discover precisely what users want from their computer, Microsoft engineered Windows 7 Home Premium around those expectations. The result is a sleek operating system that allows you to breeze through everyday tasks. For example, Windows 7 discovers USB devices quicker, lets you connect to and change wireless networks without complications, finds files anywhere on your hard drive nearly instantly, and much more!

Laptop computer users will very much appreciate the faster sleep and resume performance of Windows 7 Home Premium, as well as the improved power management features for extending battery life. There are also great new ways to manage files and windows! These include the new taskbar previews, bigger icons, Jump Lists for speedy access to your favourite files, and a Snap feature for resizing windows in an instant.

Overall performance has been improved too, reducing the memory requirements for Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and speeding up installation times. Windows Media Center now runs smoother than ever, with eye-popping visuals, stunning new slide shows, and brilliant new features for playing, pausing, recording and managing TV shows on your computer.

Best of all, the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade is amazingly affordable - ensuring that these great new features are accessible to everyone!

That's a great offer. It might be a bit of overkill for me as I only want Windows 7 on my netbook lol. But it's definately a great option!

It's not an overkill. I have installed the Ultimate version on my MSI U130 netbook (as an upgrade from W7 Starter) and it runs much faster than the Starter version did.

Windows will automatically decide what to install and optimize your system, so you don't get the parts which your system couldn't cope with.

If your netbook doesn't have an optical drive, you can use the Microsoft USB tool (free from Microsoft) to get your new Windows on a Pendrive and install from USB. (You have to change the BIOS start-up to USB as the first boot drive).

£42.95 is a great price. I think almost anybody can get it. LOL!

mmm, that's good to know. I think I'll see if I know any students and ask them to get it for me.

There are about 3 different ways to do a fresh install on a wiped drive with an UPGRADE disc
without recourse to any other resources

From the http://www.software4students.co.uk/Windows_7-software.aspx
Full description of a custom install is available there too

S4S & Microsoft advise customers to choose the upgrade DVD's "Custom Installation" option when available rather than "In-Place Upgrade" and to back up all important files before beginning.

Unless you have Windows Vista Business and you are staying 32-bit or staying 64-bit, you MUST use the Custom Installation option to install Windows 7 Professional Upgrade.

Do you actually have to be a student or know a student? or can i just pretend to be one?

I had a look and it looks like they want to know the students institution and student's email address. I think they send the download link to the students email address.

Yes. It burns as an .img file onto a dvd and you install it from there.
