Windows 7 Upgrade on a illegal copy of windows XP
Posted on 2010-09-03
I have client who bought a computer with an illegal copy of Windows XP preinstalled.
I still need to confirm if he will qualify for the genuine Microsoft software offer.
He want to buy a legal copy but he wants to continue to use Windows XP. It would be an easy fix if he qualifies for the MS offer. But if he does not qualify I can purchase Windows 7 Professional Upgrade with downgrade rights.
My question is if we will be able to install Windows XP with the legal license in this way or is it a catch 22 in that you can only install Windows 7 Pro Upgrade or its downgraded versions on a legal copy of Windows?
