Top Customer Reviews
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 missing Adobe Flash Active X component, which I was able to fix by downloading a copy from Adobe.com and installing.) We are both happy with these Windows 7 Pro OEM installations and find that Windows 7 is not all that different from XP as far as the user interface goes. It also seems to boot up, load and run faster on our computers than XP did.
I have been using Windows operating systems since 1992, when I installed Windows 3 on my little 16 megahertz Packard Bell 386SX PC running Microsoft DOS. I have installed multiple versions and instances of Windows (3, 95, 98, ME, and XP) on several computers over the years.Read more ›
I installed this a as virtual machine using virtualbox on a host Windows 8 Laptop with lots of disc and ram . Works great!
One minor thing to note is that the Dell name appears on some of the screens in th eoperating system. Not a big deal to me but something to know. They can probably be removed if its important to you.
NOTE: UPDATE to the above issue.
1) Amazon has been extremely helpful in that they offered a ONE time exemption to their 30 day return policy on this product. They provided me with excellent and expedient customer support by offering to return this Windows 7 Pro DVD......... HOWEVER........
2) After researching my particular issue with this Windows 7 Pro DVD.... I discovered the following...
a) There is a temporary "work around" by searching on YouTube that involves using Windows (CMD) command and typing in SLGR -REARM. What this basically does is give you 30 more days to use the program and removes the "This Windows 7 is not Genuine" in the bottom right hand corner of your Windows (Black) desktop. Note....this REARM command can only be used 3 times (90 days).
b) I discovered a PERMANENT solution to my particular issue by using the AUTOMATED Microsoft PHONE Activated System.Read more ›
