Look Think why does it have to be Ultimate is it because you reckon it has superior powers over the other versions? I only ever use Home Premium I had Pro as the OEM on my Toshiba laptop when I bought it and frankly a waste of resources.

What I don't really understand is why you don't trust any dealers in your area? I cannot for the life of me think there are no large retailers that do not do copies of the 7 OS??

Try a Google for Microsoft the see if the store sells 7 - whatever version you want and there just has to be a reputable outlet some where. Get an OEM that is the Original Equipment Manufacturers version but you will only be able to use it on that motherboard it will not swap without asking permission from Microsoft to use it elsewhere say if the machine broke down completely and you had to get a different machine.

You will of course have to wipe that drive completely and prepare it that will need another machine to that from and a way of hooking it up to that machine one of those gadgets that connect a drive to a machine via a USB connection is what I use a but it needs to be a powered device.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command or use wipe disk with the Partition Wizard Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

Then use this Clean Install Windows 7 you can skip the making of a stick or disk unless you can just purchase the licence on its own.

A word of warning DO NOT buy anything from Ebay or one of those kind of outlets or you may end up with the same as you have got. What about Amazon?? Amazon.com: Software

Buy w7 here, perhaps, I don't know if the site is valid in Korea.
Windows 7 Home Premium - Microsoft Store
Ultimate is useful only if you want to run XP mode or Bit Locker for which your board needs special hardware for.

Think no need to keep clalling sir mate John will do - personally if you are not going to use all of the features of Ultimate or Professional for that matter I don't know what Britton thinks as he is far more accomplished than me but I have always used Home Premium.

When you are in Manilla I am positive you can find a store that will sell you the version you want.

I mean the choice is yours the Ultimate of course being the most exopensive one and do try to get an OEM if you can unless you intend chnaging machines in thenear futre then get the full retail but it willl a lot more than the OEM.
this is Microsoft Phillipines down the botom of this reference the differnt versons are listed Microsoft Windows

this is just one site I found and as you can see the Ultimate is twice the price of the Home Premium and make sure the version comes with SP1 (Service Pack 1) Microsoft Software Prices & Reviews - Compare Software in Philippines on Price Me

if you want the Amazon site may be a bit cheaper but you will have to add shippin which forths souldn't be much Amazon.com: windows 7 oem

Just dont be tempted to get soemthing that is a real good deal if it looks too good to be true then it probably is.

Here you go, this will show the difference in w7 editions. While Ultimate is popular, very few people need it Compare Windows 7 - Microsoft Windows

I think the problem is in that part of the world there are many people selling fakes of everything.
A member here said he was in China and his daughter bought some peanuts from a street vendor. They were all empty shells the guy had glued together.

The OEM will be tied to that motherboard, retail can be moved to another computer if that one dies.

You should look into an upgrade disc, we have a tutorial for doing a clean install with an upgrade disc.

Yes Derek mate but I think he has a counterfeit copy as there are no details and his friend sounds rather suspect

Yeah, he does have a counterfeit. He already admitted that his friend used a loader on it.

Haven't the last few posts been about where to get a legal copy?

His last post was about retail or OEM, the reason I suggested an upgrade version is price and not being hobbled to the initial motherboard.

Clean installs can be done with an upgrade disc, that's the tutorial I posted.

I guess we wait and see if the OP is going to follow through...
