    Turned an old XP computer into a new one!

    With Microsoft ending its support of XP on April 8th, I knew I had to do something about one of our older Dell computers that's been running XP for the last -- wow maybe 8 years? A little voice told me I should just spend $400 on a new computer instead of $100 on a new OS but the old computer works fine and was pretty fast on XP, and the Windows Upgrade Advisor (free download, google it) told me that the unit would have no problems with Windows 7.So I copied all of my picture and document files off of the computer onto an external hard drive and booted this DVD. It only took about 10 minutes to install Windows 7 and yes, the hardest part is reading the micro type on the password key to unlock the copy of Windows. I took a picture with my iPhone and then zoomed in to read the numbers but even with that one number was VERY hard to read. After activation I spent the next hour or so configuring the computer, and I used Windows Easy Transfer (another free program from... 5/5 Goldengate "Goldengate" (San Francisco, where else?) - See all my reviews, March 9, 2014

    Windows 7 beats Windows 8 In My eyes

    I purchased a brand new computer that came with Windows 8. I'm thinking cool, I can tinker around with a new OS. I couldn't get passed the login screen. No joke. As soon as the computer boots up its asking for a password. Come to find out it wants my Microsoft email.pw from like 20 years ago which I have no access to anymore. I literally couldn't get to the desktop. I have Windows 8 on my phone with no problems so I don't know what the problem was.Needless to say I purchased this Windows 7 Home Premium. Now I compared the differences between the versions but apparently not well enough. Turns out this version limits you to using 16GB RAM. My new computer had 8GB x 4 for 32 GBs of RAM. Under computer properties its says 32GB memory(16GB usable).I then proceeded to downloaded a cracked version of Windows Ultimate x64 which uses all 32GBs.

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.

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.

    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?)

    great fix for moving from XP to Win 7

    My 2006 Dell desktop that came with Windows XP is now working well on Windows 7 by using the Windows & Home Premium OEM disc from Amazon. I'm no computer geek, but I did not run into significant problems. Even though this OEM disc does not come with Microsoft support, I found all help eventually needed on the Microsoft website prior to ordering the disc from Amazon, including that Amazon is an authorized reseller of MS products. The how-to document on Microsoft guided me right through the whole process: "Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7" . I ran the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor" to be sure my computer would support Windows 7. Because the "clean start" required when loading Win 7 leaves nothing on your hard drive, I ran the "Windows Easy Transfer" to save folders and files to an external disk drive. Programs (like MS Office, Kaspersky Internet Security) are not saved when Win 7 loads and have to be reloaded after Win 7 is installed. After loading Win 7, you run the "Windows Easy... 5/5 k.s.

    Excellent Alternative to Windows 8 for Those Coming From Windows XP

    I was forced to move up to Windows 7 Professional from Windows XP because of Microsoft ending XP support even though I was happy using XP. My desktop PC is a 2008 Dell Optiplex 740. I need a new computer and will buy one with Windows 7 Pro as soon as I can work it into the budget but for now I have to use this machine for a few more months.After researching my options using customer reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere online, I determined that I did not want to go with Windows 8 and opted for Windows 7 Pro. I learned from reading one review about the OEM version and decided that was the one to get and I bought a copy. My girlfriend was in the same boat with her own Dell Optiplex 740 XP PC so she also bought Win 7 Pro OEM.I successfully installed the Win 7 Pro OEM on both PCs between 4/7/14 and 4/9/14, activated them and installed most of our daily use software and we haven't had any problems so far except for a glitch in my Camtasia Studio 3 (caused by a... 5/5 C.K.

The whole thing had been poorly re-shrink wrapped. This is not a legal way to sell Microsoft OEM software as it can only be used on one machine. Amazon needs to be aware that they are aiding an illegal practice. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 12, 2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade [Windows 7 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.

    If you have XP, this beats buying a new computer.

    I have a 6 year old Dell with a quad core processor and 3 Gig of RAM. With the demise of XP coming up in April, I had to come up with a solution. I require a supported operating system for work. My alternatives were to buy a new computer (with Win8), or upgrade the old XP machine with a new OS. I picked this Win7 OS because it uses less resources than Win8 (which was actually a few bucks cheaper) and would be a better fit for an older machine. I was right. This is just the right solution for extending the life of an older computer. Win7 runs on my old system just as fast as the old XP OS and the user interface is intuitive and very easy to grasp if you're coming from XP or Vista. Another plus is that Win7 supports Office 2003, which I already own. Win8 doesn't. That saved a couple hundred bucks.Installation was very simple.

    Easy to install. My old hard drive died, so i installed a new hard drive and used the Windows 7 System Builder successfully

    The 500Gb hard drive on my Dell XPS 420 died and I struggled with how to get the machine up and running again without too much expense. First, I knew I needed a new drive and since I have been running Carbonite (on-line/off-site backup) on this machine, I purchased a 1Tb SATA drive and replaced the failed drive. After reading a bunch of license notes on Microsoft's website and a bunch of user comments, I figured out that I could use the "System Builder" version of Windows 7, because I was essentially building a system (for me). The only downside to this version of Windows that I can tell is that it does not come with support. I suppose the support is me, since I am the system builder. The second issue could be a downside, but I don't see how, really. The "System Builder" version of Windows 7 is locked to the machine I installed it on, so I can't move it to a new machine.
