Top Customer Reviews
The OEM package is not the retail version, but is actually intended for someone who is building a system for commercial sale. Packaging consists of a plastic DVD box on which is a sticker with the authentication number. Unless you have amazing eyesight, you will likely require a magnifying glass to read the number off the sticker when the installation process requests the number.
On both machines, the installations were straightforward and work well.
This 64 bit OS will not run on all computers. Prior to ordering the package you should use Microsoft's tool (Google it) to advise you if you can run 64 bit software. Some computers are suited to run only 32 bit software (which this is not).
Make a backup of your files before you load Windows 7. The new OS overwrites your hard drive.
Some of your existing computer drivers may not be compatible with this OS. In this case, check the manufacturers' websites to determine if upgraded drivers are available. For example, my Samsung laser printer's driver was incompatible, but the Samsung website provide an updated driver which works beautifully with Windows 7. Conversely, my old Canon scanner had to be replaced because Canon did not produce a driver for it beyond the Windows XP OS.
Some old versions of software may not be compatible with the new OS. This was not a concern to me as I run mostly open source and freeware applications which tend to be updated regularly.
You will have to reload your drivers, software, and files after the Windows 7 OS installation is loaded.
Still like XP and office 2003 better.

Exactly what I was looking for.
I find it easier to work with than Windows 8 which came as standard with my 2013 computer.
Fast delivery and the software is perfect. I would highly recommend Windows 7 over 8 for the casual PC user.Published 23 months ago by Justin
Bought this because Windows 8 sucks, and Microsoft makes you buy with a new PC.Published on July 17 2014 by Madman
