My other half upgraded our main home computer in the week, from crappy old Vista, to Win7,

She bought a package of 3 from Microsoft, and ended up only using one.... so the other two are for sale, here..

We'll provide email address, order code etc. in order for you to upgrade 2 x computers in your home..

£60

The package of three cost £150

does the upgrade wipe everything like a fresh install or does it leave all your bits alone?

looks like you can upgrade from vista :wink:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/help/upgrading-from-windows-vista-to-windows-7

gt-steve, shouldnt you keep these copies? or can you use the key from the one you kept, multiple times?
as i remember, with xp, you could only use one copy on 3 pc's (simultaneously?)


and what is Windows xx ISO?

tell your friend of a friend of a friend of a friend (i.e someone you dont know)
to read through that small article i linked, and download the advisor, check the compatability page. i dont see why he/she would have a problem :wink:
if you put the disc in a run it it should come up with the options
