I love Windows 7 but my experience activating this software was less than optimal. I installed clean over XP on an older machine. I allowed it to do a clean install as I had already removed everything I wanted to retain from the PC.

Everything went fine until I started getting the warning message to activate my copy of Windows. I tried entering and reentering the product key on the disc envelope. Each time I got an error stating that the key was invalid.

I found online that most people fixed the issue by activating via telephone (MS support). I clicked START and typed "slui 4", right-clicked and chose "Run as administrator". I was given a number to call MS (you have to choose your country and then it gives you the 888 number to call).

You have to read 9 sets of 6 digit numbers into the phone. The system then gives you a bunch of numbers you have to enter at the bottom of that window. The system also asked me how many PCs I was installing this on (which seemed weird since I assumed they were all for a single install). When I clicked the NEXT button, I got a "success" message and am now officially activated.

I chose to install this window 7 operating system on my laptop and it installed just fine and as expected. The CD came with the genuine Microsoft product key to register the operatoring system with Microsoft. Good for one computer and re installation onto the same computer if I need to. Keep the product key just in case you need to reinstall later. I chose windows 7 over windows 8 because it performs solid. This CD already includes service pack one.

Works fine...as a fresh clean installation on an old Dell Poweredge 400SC server from 2003 (a Pentium 4 2.4ghz with 4GB of memory). To keep Win 7 from slowing me on such an old machine, I put it on a new 240GB Intel SSD drive. When installing, pick "Custom" / "Drive Options". I gave Win 7 the entire drive, all on one drive partition.
I had no problems activating Win 7 online, although the key code sticker was a little difficult to read. The DVD was not as fancy as my old Win XP CD (which had a huge hologram all over it). Pretty plain packaging.

After install, the only device it did not recognize was my Soundblaster Audigy 2 card, and the stock graphics card driver for my old Nvidia 7600 GS was from 2009. The Windows updates did offer a driver for the Soundblaster and a Jan. 2013 update for the graphics. I accepted both, instead of downloading separate ones from the makers' sites. The Nvidia one looks fine. But the Soundblaster one lacks loudness or volume when I tested it in Win Media Player (had to up my speakers' volume more than usual). I may get the driver from Soundblaster's web site anyway.

The only real difficulty is that so many updates and patches have been issued by Microsoft since Service Pack 1. Over 180 of them marked "important" and a few more marked "optional". I tried to do them all in one fell swoop and that caused Win 7 to choke. It's best to do them in groups, and restart after each group: Internet Explorer ones first, then regular Win 7 security patches, then other non-security Win 7 patches (except .Net), next the .Net patches, finally, any driver or equipment updates. I wouldn't install any of the optional updates until reading about them first. The only really crucial "optional" update is the Win 7 Platform Update which I did install (the description read like many of the components for a "Service Pack 2").

This software does have the option to just do an upgrade to a present, earlier version of Windows. To do that though, it must be an appropriate upgrade. For example, I did a Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade, no issues. It did do 181 updates once installed and the whole process was a couple hours. All works great, much faster on program loads. One thing I did notice, there were half a dozen or so new non-microsoft programs installed along with it (reg cleaner, performance boosters etc.) that clearly were crap. I went through control panel and un-installed all non-microsoft apps that were installed at the same time. All is good.

The disk that I received is a Dell OE DVD. I performed a clean install (erased the disk) on a Lenovo T60 laptop.
Everything works perfectly. This is a 32 bit operating system. If you are not sure whether you have 32 or 64 bit
just lookup your computer online and see what processor (cpu) is in it. Then google that. You should be able to see
whether yours is 32 or 64 bit. I performed a clean install on a new blank hard drive. I am a computer professional and
I do these installs all the time. I bought this disk from Amazon because the company that I usually buy from is out of stock.
After you install it you will need to register it with Microsoft. You just call them up and read some numbers to them and then
copy some numbers down on the computer you installed this on. Easy-peasy. You will also need to go to the manufacturers
website and download & install any device drivers that are not included on the disk.

Exactly as described. Worked great for refurbing a friend's Asus eeePC from XP to W7. Fresh install with import of account/profile info via settings wizard.
