5.0 out of 5 stars Best Windows Yet and Easy Install, January 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I brought this for my dad as a Christmas present. Buying an OEM version means that it will not include any drivers specific to your system - if you don't know how to load your own drivers or don't want to bother, you should buy the upgrade directly from your system manufacturer (ie Acer, Gateway, Dell, etc.).

I wanted to install the x64 version to allow 64 bit versions of software run - and to allow better memory access above 4 gigabytes.

The install went very smooth - and my Dad was up and running in about 30 minutes. I went through a breif tutorial of the new features in Windows 7, as well as a tutorial of how Live MovieMaker and Photo Gallery work as well as how some of the new features work - like jump lists and the various libraries.

He's not very technical, but he caught on fast and likes Windows 7!

Is this a full or an upgraded version? I need a full version.

is the DVD truly compatible with any hardware (that meets the Win 7 minimum requirements)? I am asking because I read on some OEM packaging descriptions "(Dell)". Does it mean that those are only going to work with Dell hardware? I need to install on an HP laptop currently running Vista Ultimate.. but I want to upgrade to Win 7 Home... thanks!

No, what the original poster is trying to say is, that once you clean install Windows on to one particular system, it's stuck to that system, you can't install it on anything else once you do install it. Also, you need to provide your own tech support for Windows on top of that, under license. If you feel you need support FROM Microsoft, then that's when you have to pay that full version price for a clean install. However, if you run Vista Ultimate, I assume that the upgrade license to Home Premium will do it, I'd figure.
