This is for a PC. What you can do are the following:
- Office MAC Home and student 2011
- Office MAC Home and business 2011 (it is the previous one plus outlook)
Or you can get something like parallel to run a virtual machine (assuming you have at least 4M of RAM). Then you can down this software and run a virtual machine. But this software alone won't work.
First of all I am not positive, but this and from what I researched online Microsoft is trying to push windows 8.1 "just look at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/buy".
The second reason is the amount of windows 7 retail boxes are becoming rare. OEM is still cheaper but it has several disadvantages license-wise.
Yes and no.
If you replace a hardware part, as long as it's not many at once (example: only video card or sound-card) the OS will not complain and you'll be ok. If you replace the motherboard with another exactly like it, exact same made/model/reversion number, you should be ok.
But replacing the motherboard with a different type/brand or too many hardware parts at once, and the OS will just say you have it installed on a new PC (even though you only upgraded a few parts and most are the same) you just have to connect to the net and 're-verify' your OS and you will be ok.
The OS keeps tabs on what hardware is connected each boot-up and if all are the same, your ok, but if one part is different, the OS secretly 'flag's that item, since it's not the same. If it's only one item, you will be ok.
I don't' know what the 'flag limit' is (too many and the OS says it needs to connect to the net to re-verify the OS) but the only parts that the OS can't tell/don't care about is the PC RAM (non-video) and the Power Supply, that I'm aware of.
According to what I understand, vista is before xp so if you wanted to just upgrade you can actually get just an upgrade software to go from vista to xp. There is an upgrade software to go from xp to windows 7. Any way, I think Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full Retail is not an upgrade software to go from vista to windows 7, it is actually the full Microsoft windows 7 to be installed in a new system. After all, I think it can work well for your system, you will just be getting a full new operating system.
Simple answer is yes.This has a 64 bit and 32 bit discs and one license. It is a full install disc not an upgrade but you can use it like an upgrade if you want. Make sure before you purchase that you will not need any of the features of the pro or ultimate versions.
