Windows 7 Download Question

Good day...

I want to purchase and install Windows 7 on my computer. I would like to purchase it from some reputable company and download the software and activation key. I don't want to wait for it to come through the mail. Any suggestions of legit companies that can do this? Any suggestion on best price would be helpful as well.

Thanks

I looked at their site (as I have purchased from Software King before) and they offer Direct Download links as well as DVD. So you can purchase now and download now.

I did not see Windows Home, but at the end of the day, you are better off with Pro anyway.

If you are in the US, try a company such as Best Buy.

You can get Windows 7 online from Software King.

I purchased a license and DVD for Windows 7 Pro 64-bit for a Virtual Machine 6 months ago. Their product is legitimate and trouble free.

You can download legitimate copies of various versions of the Windows 7 ISO immediately from DigitalRiverContent.net.

Pick the right one according to the license key you plan on buying:

Windows 7 Home Premium (x86) – X17-24208 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-24208.iso

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) – X17-24209 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-24209.iso

Windows 7 Professional (x86) – X17-59183 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59183.iso

Windows 7 Professional (x64) – X17-59186 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59186.iso

Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) – X17-59463 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59463.iso

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) – X17-59465 (With SP1):
http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso


You can install it immediately. When you are prompted for the license key, click on "Skip" and proceed through the installation.

You have 30 days to activate Windows with a legitimately purchased product key before Windows will start nagging you with the "You may have been a victim of software counterfeiting" warning.

You can now purchase an OEM copy of Windows from a reputable dealer like Best Buy, NewEgg etc., and wait for it to arrive. When it arrives, use the product key to activate your copy of Windows.

@pcwizz1 - Please read all the posts above. I gave you a working link to Software King and I have purchased from them.

Digital River is a web front for Microsoft and Microsoft is not selling Windows 7 through that channel so far as I know.

Hi Thinkpads_User,

Thank you for the help. I just took a look and it seems that the only Win7 they have is professional @ $149. Unfortunately that is a bit high for my budget. My intent was to save some time with a direct download. But perhaps I need to be patient and just order the DVD online and wait a few days for it to arrive.

Any other downloadable options would be most welcome.

Thanks for you assistance...
