Microsoft Policy States: "Large brand-name computer manufacturers, such as Dell and Compaq, often include OEM software on non-holographic “recovery” or “reinstallation” discs that show the manufacturer’s brand name. These software packages are typically marked with a phrase that states, for instance, “For Distribution with a new Dell PC only.” Recovery or reinstallation software is licensed only for distribution with new computers and can be redistributed only with the computer for which it was initially distributed. Distributing such software with individual PC hardware components (e.g. hard drive; RAM) does not comply with Microsoft’s OEM distribution requirements."

The cd doesn't look like any Windows 7 genuine cd I've ever seen!
I wouldn't buy just the licence from them as it doesn't come with the sticker
About £15 over the going rate for pukka OEM codes on Ebay.

Yup it's a minefield, requires a judgement call on anything you decide to buy. The DVD itself is pretty pointless though tbh, you can download a legit ISO directly from MS and burn it yourself (or even better load it onto a thumb drive)

Edit: and BTW I have a legit DVD that looks exactly like that aswell as others that look different

only problem with w7 now ia that new mobo / cpu wont support it
Then get the lastest Harvester meal deal from Microsoft... Windows 10
They'll harvest all your personal info, add it to all that's already available on the internet and make a lovely
individual meal and then dine and share with those data hungry corporations

I have a complete set of windows 7 ultimate with case box etc, one is a copy, one is the real thing. from the time when Ms didn't have such a strong hold on Ebay, they look quite similar until you inspect the disk closely in which case it's possible to tell the difference. I have other real ones of course, so it doesn't matter to me whether the disk is gentuine or not. This type, I haven't seen, so it will be interesting to see what turns up (I have ordered a dvd and licence) The 'hologram' dvd of the OP looks like the normal resellers DVD, but you can never tell unless you can actually handle the DVD

Yeah it's possible the listing photo is just a stock image so wait and see what shows up. And yeah there's some pretty convincing looking fakes out there too just to add to the fun
Either way IMO an official ISO loaded onto a USB stick wins every time for me; easier, faster and more practical
Also worth noting genuine Win7 licenses can be directly used on a clean install of windows 10

That's probably what makes this a worthwhile purchase, assuming it is genuine and not some dodgy old stickers pulled off corporate computers.

Actually not true, you have to validate the Key with MS, they won't let you download the image if its OEM, they tell you to go to the supplier\PC manufacturer. All these cheap ones are normally OEM (Dell\HP) So actually worth getting a proper CD if you don't have one rather than a copy which you have no idea if its got any dodgy stuff.

I bought a few from a couple of sellers on Ebay, they sent me a dvd with the sticker/key,
I did a couple of fresh installs and all were working fine. Two I upgraded to windows 10 (for free at the time) and the other 2 are working fine, still no issues with the key or anything.

I know it's not possible to download an ISO with an OEM key anymore but there are some very simple ways around that and once you have it you have it forever

Oh it will 100% be a decommissioned machine 'beyond reasonable economical repair'
How dodgy it is or can be is a whole different story though
Like simon said. Don't trust any DVD that you get with these purchases unless you are 100% sure it's an original. This is the most important software that you can install that needs to be virus free. It's always best to download the most up to date iso directly from m$ and burn the DVD yourself, unless you are one of those people with tons of browser toolbars. However, you can't download a win7 iso directly from them with a win7 oem key.

Yep all true. However it is still extremely easy to download ISOs for any version of Windows directly from MS without any key. Takes 10 seconds to google very easy instructions.

So turn off the trackers. Problem solved
Worth every penny , definitely better value than Windows 10

Now received. It's not a genuine Ms cd
You can still upgrade to windows 10 for free with a valid windows 7 install (even an OEM license), via the "Windows 10 upgrade for assistive technology users" page. Just fyi.
