    Win 7 OEM Clean Install

    Don't understand some of the feedback on this product. I bought 2 copies to install on an old Pentium 4 desktop and an Asus Netbook, both with XP already installed. It worked wonderfully....but there are a few tips...before you start search on "clean install of Win 7" and you will find some great sites....one with a step by step illustrated guide. So here are my tips...change boot order to CD first in BIOS..start the install...choose 'custom install'...choose advanced and the window will give you the opportunity to delete existing partitions....delete all one by one, until you get a single entry with "unallocated space". TIP...if the delete button is grayed out after you delete one or two partitions, exit install by hitting the escape key and rebooting to restart install from the beginning. Delete remaining partitions and proceed with the install. The install on my netbook then went perfectly. On the desktop after deleting the partitions the system rebooted and... 5/5 Julius C - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Don't buy a new computer due to XP support ending-just buy this!

    As stated in the description, this is a "clean install" or system builder version rather than an upgrade. Its better to do a clean install anyway. Its not hard to do even if you are not very computer savvy. A simple web search will yield many excellent tutorials on how to install it. Most of the complaints in other reviews are due to user error, not a fault in the product.It was very easy to install. The most complicated part was changing the BIOS setting to make the system boot from the CD instead of the hard drive. I selected custom install and deleted one partition on the C drive. That was all I needed to do manually. The software did pretty much everything else itself. After an hour, WIndows 7 was installed, I had loaded all my programs, music, and documents back on, and downloaded antivirus software and a few other things I wanted.Instead of trashing a perfectly good desktop I had built only 2 1/2 years ago, I spent $100 plus tax for Windows 7 and... 5/5 SKRX - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Better than Windows 8, still not better than Windows 7.

    Last year, I made the mistake of upgrading my Windows 7 Desktop System to Windows 8. I've been running Windows 8.1 since the Preview version that came out a few months ago, and the official release version that came out this week. While Windows 8.1 does make some improvements to Windows 8, it is still is not an O/S that is desktop friendly. On the positive side, you can now boot directly to your desktop without using a 3rd party utility, and the "Start Button" is back (sorta). On the negative side, Microsoft has still left out the "Media Center", and still charges a ridiculous $99 to purchase the "Pro-Pack" to regain the same functionality that was free in Windows 7(Home Premium). There is still lack of quality Windows 8 apps. Windows 8.1 does very little to improve navigation through the O/S if you're using a mouse/keyboard, and not a touchscreen. At least Microsoft did not attempt to charge Windows 8 users to upgrade.Windows 8.1 does fix some of the issues people running... 3/5 D. Hentze (United States) - See all my reviews, October 18, 2013

    Justifiably maligned.

    I thought I was prepared... I had read all the blogs, comments, hate. It was fun from the comfort of my beloved Win 7. Eventually curiosity got the best of me and I decided to try Win 8.1. I am still in disbelief that Microsoft thought "tiles" and "swiping" was a good idea on a desktop. I mean - somebody needs to get fired, and possibly castrated. And those tiles - on what planet does "weather" take up the most real estate? My very first impression was it looked and felt cheap. Like a toy. I like phones and tablets to feel like toys, but not my desktop. It took some time but I finally scrubbed the last of the idiocy off my machine, and now Win 8.1 feels, looks, and runs like Win 7. Is it faster? NO. Does it boot quicker? NO. I also built a Win 7 machine this week, and a clean install of Win 7 seems to boot at exactly the same speed as 8.1. That install went MUCH quicker, as Win 7 is basically perfect. I called my friend at MSFT and yelled at him.

    The worst

    What makes Windows 8 such a disaster? Simple--it's an interface designed for a smartphone, not for a PC. Here's what that means. When you power on your PC, what you get instead of a normal Windows desktop is a brightly colored screen with a bunch of "tiles", most of which are advertisements for "apps" that you have little or no use for. There's no start button, no taskbar, no tools, no menus, no links to anything except the useless "apps". It's a huge step backward to the pre-Windows days of computing.It turns out that if you hover your mouse pointer over certain parts of the screen, various cryptic flyout symbols (instead of easily understood menus) will appear. If you click on these symbols (and don't let your pointer slip off of them or they disappear and you have to go fishing for them again) you're taken into a confusing maze of options that substitute for normal Windows functions and must be explored in linear, sequential fashion. Sound familiar? It's like a smart... 1/5 Badger25 - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (Software) What makes Windows 8 such a disaster?

    Works Great on my MacBook Air and Linux workstation

    This is a fantastic addition to a MacBook Air. I have the latest MacBook Air (as of June 2011) and wanted to add wired Ethernet. I considered buying the Apple USB Ethernet adapter, but stopped because it is 10/100 Mbps only. This Plugable adapter is 10/100/1000 Mbps. It's important to note that the USB 2.0 interface limits the maximum throughput to 480 Mbps max -- so gigabit speeds (1000 Mbps) will never be possible, although I've found the increased performance over 100 Mbps is definitely worth considering this over the Apple adapter.I just tested some file transfers from my home server to my MacBook Air, and they transferred at 312 Mbps. Keep in mind, this particular test was possibly limited by something other than the raw network speed, however writing to the Air's SSD and reading from the server's disk were probably not limiting factors. This just demonstrates that this interface is much faster than the 100 Mbps maximum available with the Apple adapter... 5/5 Jeff Jacobs - See all my reviews, June 21, 2011

    It's mandatory for slightly better gaming performance. if you can stand 5 FPS lower, go for windows 7.

    I was building a new PC, and I wanted this OS because it is more modern than windows 7, which is from 2009, and is less demanding, meaning more of my hardware can be focused on gaming.Here are the pros and consPros:-as said previously, better optimization for new hardware. This OS will use up to 8 threads, so it puts less stress on AMD 8 core processors and hyperthreaded quad cores. It also just flat out runs better with newer hardware.

    If you've reinstalled Windows just once in your life, you've learned enough to tackle a full virgin installation of Windows 7 from an OEM copy.

    OEM Microsoft product

    I love the system builder version of Windows 7--- it installs the operating system only--- no junk, no ads, no nonsense. Instead if me having to spend hours deleting everything I do not need, I spend that time reinstalling my applications and being productive. What still surprises me is how fast it installs compared to all previous versions of Windows. I had the system to the point it was starting to update itself in less than 30-minutes which is awesome.I have installed both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions without a hitch. The only [minor] gripe is that I wish I could set it on autopilot to install ALL of the updates without any intervention back-to-back-to-back. It seems as though it goes through the motions of updating this group which then triggers that grouping. I know I can just leave auto update on and let it do it over time, but I want it all done now. So while doing some other things I would go back every 20-min to see if I need to do anything. After a few... 5/5 The Goat (Maryland) - See all my reviews, January 20, 2012

    There are a couple of shortcomings....

    0 3/5 Dan Z "-dan z-" (Northeast Tennessee, home of the free) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Windows 7 Professional SP1 32bit (Full) System Builder OEM DVD 1 Pack [Old Packaging] (Software) Using this disk produces a Win-7 system with OEM as the character part of the product ID. Thus if you need support from Microsoft, you can not get it for free. They tell you to contact the computer manufacturer, who would presumably be the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) who installed Windows. You do have the option of paying for Microsoft support or asking questions on the Microsoft Forum (I have found that to be pretty useless).Also, this disk can not be used as a repair disk. It only has two modes: upgrade and install. "Upgrade" actually re-installs the operating system but supposedly saves your files and settings. Using either option requires registering the installation with Microsoft again, and the papers included with the disk indicate that, except in special circumstances, it can only be used once. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2013

    Great for netbooks, but little else

    This product is only for computers running Windows 7 Starter, so if you are hoping to upgrade from XP or Vista with this kit you are out of luck. If you bought a Windows 7 netbook, chances are you have Windows 7 Starter and have already noticed a few shortcomings of the "netbook-friendly" OS. Among those are the inability to change the background or theme without assistance of 3rd party software, no Windows Media Center, and lack of Aero enhancements such as Glass (translucent borders) and Peek (thumbnail previews of open windows). Starter also lacks a 64-bit version and caps memory at 2GB, but the Atom processors in most netbooks are 32-bit and only support up to 2GB RAM.Windows Anytime Upgrade is a convenient way to increase functionality without spending extra on a full upgrade kit. The case contains only a product key, no disc, so no external DVD drive is needed. Windows 7 installs all of the components for all versions regardless of which is being installed, locking... 4/5 sakanagai "sakanagai" - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade [Starter to Home Premium] This product is only for computers running Windows 7 Starter, so if you are hoping to upgrade from XP or Vista with this kit you are out of luck.

    Upgraded from inferior product

    0 3/5 D. Vajdak "Online buyer" (Aggieland, TX) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade [Starter to Home Premium] Does what it's supposed to do. The "No discs, no delay" is deceiving. When you order from Amazon, you don't just get the upgrade code emailed to you instantly, you actually have to wait for a package to be delivered. There is no disc, just the upgrade code. Seems like it could be done online so you don't have to wait several days for a little card to be delivered. A waste of time and packaging. The delivery method is the reason I'm giving it a lower number of stars.Windows 7 Starter needs to be done away with. Just because you have a small portable laptop does not mean that you want only a few basic features. Shame on Microsoft for making this version that almost forces an experienced user to upgrade. It's just a ploy to get more $$$. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 28, 2010
