    Cheapest place for genuine Windows 7 Licenses?

    Seen Ebuyer / Aria / Scan.co.uk all seem to be around the £67 - £69 mark for x86 Home premium OEM, just wondering if anyone knows of anywhere else that's cheaper and sells genuine copys of windows 7 home premium?

    Needing a couple of copys to upgrade a couple of old PC's for someone, has to be x86 version as they aren't x64 cpu's

    and none of this "oh it will be rubbish on that hardware if it doesn't even support x64" :-)

    I believe some are one time only activate, so changing hardware prevents use, something to aware of.

    That's why I would only buy genuine, i see a lot of "refurbished" licenses on amazon for between £30 - £40 but im kinda wary of them since they will probably deactivate later on in the future

    buying oem is a mistake if your computer dies you cant transfer licence with retail box version

    The trick was to ring up MS out of hours then go through the menus and get a new code.

    Worked with vista not done it with w7 though.

    If they are 32bit only computers maybe linux mint for free would be better?

    They can try it for free running off a dvd to see if they can cope with it.

    There is a tutorial in computer shopper magazine ATM on moving from xp on older hardware

    I used to sell some on eBay and they are one time activations. They are not used or preowned. They are fresh direct from Microsoft.
    I'll be selling some again soon
