    Dell Windows 7 Upgrade info

    just curious if anyone has bought a dell desktop/laptop and paid for the Windows 7 Upgrade disc.

    I received mine this morning, which came with product key and is labeled as Vista to 7 Upgrade disc.

    Does anyone know, if I choose to run the upgrade on a different Vista laptop (Lenovo, not dell) am I likely to run into any complication?

    I don't want to run the upgrade on both machines, I still only want to do it the once, but on the Lenovo thinkpad rather than the dell

    TIA

    Dell disc's 'tend' to be machine specfic to the Dell range. I've never tried, but remember being told that any Dell disc won't work on a none Dell system...

    right that's what I thought might be the case......I may well give it a go anyway I can always rebuild the laptop back to factory settings.

    Dell discs do work on non-Dells, but they require the product key to be entered manually.
