5.0 out of 5 stars How do-it-yourselfers do Windows July 10, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Edition:Old Standard Packaging
If you've reinstalled Windows just once in your life, you've learned enough to tackle a full virgin installation of Windows 7 from a system builder DVD. Microsoft has finally created an operating system with so much built-in support and maintenance technology it practically does all the work for you, so if your current Windows XP machine is labeled "Windows Vista Capable" or "Windows 7 Capable," this is the way to go. Just to be sure, install and run Microsoft's Upgrade Advisor. If it passes the 64-bit system requirements, order up!

You can't upgrade from XP to 7; you have to wipe the drive or partition and perform a clean install, but even an upgrade from Vista to 7 is fraught with peril, so you might as well do the same if you're running Vista. Just back up your data and find all your application installation software before you begin. Once you activate Windows 7, it's married to the PC's system board. You can't reuse the product key on another machine unless you can convince Microsoft that the previous PC is out of commission. You're also not eligible for free phone and chat support from Microsoft, but there's a big enough expert user base that you should be able to solve most problems by joining a few Windows 7 users' forums. If you're not building an exotic tricked-out übergamingmaschine with overclocked handmade graphics cards, you shouldn't have much trouble that will require outside help. Your humble author installed Windows 7 64-bit on a MacBook Pro using Boot Camp. It found our Brother WiFi laser printer and installed the latest drivers and Brother's printer control center.

The biggest advantage: you'll skip all the "enhanced experience" software the likes of Dell, HP and Lenovo cram onto their otherwise zippy machines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well with parallels for Mac July 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
After much research I decided to go with this OEM version of Windows 7 Professional SP1 to run virtually on my new MacBook Pro running Parallels. The install was flawless and it actually runs very fast on my MacBook. I turned off all accelerators and auto-everything. The main reason I wanted the system set up this way was to be able to run the Windows version of Quicken and Turbo Tax which I've been using for more years than I care to recall. I am able to do this concurrent with running OS X, which is very convenient. No conflicts with anything. Great solution to enable a Windows user to switch to Apple and bring essential programs and documents from the Windows environment over to Mac without missing a beat!

3.0 out of 5 stars Win 7 Pro OEM works fine, but with a few problems January 27, 2013
By PRH
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
I have been designing, building and programming computers for 37 years, and have put together perhaps two dozen PCs, so when I bought the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer or "system builder") version I knew what I was getting. It works OK for an operating system, especially after all the glitzy "Aero" and other useless features are disabled.

The OEM version is intended to be installed in a new PC by the supplier, and not by the end user. However, it is the same as the end user version - there is no functional difference - and you can install it on your computer. You don't get "free" technical support from Microsoft, but if you have ever spent an hour on the phone waiting to get Microsoft's "help" only to get someone who doesn't speak English and clearly knows little about computers you know that Microsoft's "help" is worthless anyway. That's one virtue of the OEM version - you won't be tempted to waste your time waiting on the phone.

Installation is extremely simple - just put the disk in the DVD drive and follow the instructions. You DO NOT need any other installer software. The Microsoft OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK) that is occasionally mentioned is just for OEM installers who are installing Windows on dozens of computers at a time. It is not needed to install the OEM package on your computer.

There are some serious shortcomings/bugs in Win 7.

1. If you have internal SATA 3.0 hard drives in your computer they will appear as removable USB devices in the "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" dialog that is used to remove USB devices from the computer. External SATA3 drives can be unplugged and removed from the computer, but your internal drives cannot and should not be listed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Install, no problem encountered. April 22, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc| Edition:Old Standard Packaging|Verified Purchase
I was running Windows XP SP3 prior to this "upgrade". They call it an upgrade, but it was a full system init and a re-install of all my software. While this is my preferred method for a new operating system, it would have been nice to have the option to upgrade rather than do a new install.

That being said, the process went smoothly and quickly. From start to finish to get up and running on Windows 7 with SP1 it took about 90 minutes. Now that did not include re-installing my applications, just the basic Windows 7 OS being up and running on my machine.

I have never used MS support in the past, so I had no reservations about buying an OEM product with no MS support.

I would recommend this product to anyone that has installed an OS in the past and does not feel they will ever need to us MS for support.
