I need to install W7 to a dell that previously had XP as a downgrade to Vista.
I need to install W7, but discovered that I'd have to order it. My problem is that I need to install and get this machine up and running quickly.
I will purchase W7 and license it, but I was wondering if I can install from a W7 OEM disk, or use a Dell W7 disk and then apply the product ID once I receive it.
In the past I've been able to install an OS that didn't come with a particular Dell computer, but activation was required. What I mean is on that particular model pc, the particular OS wasn't made available to it. However, if a Dell model was released with that OS you could install from your Dell Disk and wouldn't t even need to activate it
So I"m wondering if I install and need to activate, will I be able to purchase a Product Key (license) online?.
Or, if I install from the OEM disk, can I purchase a license online?
