Windows 7: Is the FQC-00133 version okay for US?

28 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Is the FQC-00133 version okay for US?

Wanted to buy a version where I could install 64, mine was pre installed with 32. I found a 00133 version for sale, and from what I've read it's a European English version. Will I run into any problems installing?

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Be careful buying this from places like E-bay etc.

As long as what you get is an official version, and you can manage UK English, you should be OK.

Or get the Ultimate version with an English language translation pack for Americans............

I would not risk it.

If it is a fake, you have wasted your cash, with no way to get a genuine product key, and no legal redress from the vendor.

These things often bomb out after the 45 day sales protection offered by ebay etc.

Lemme get this right. You have Ultimate right now per system specs and you want a copy of 64 bit pro? FYI, 32 bit keys are interchangeable for 64 bit installs for any given edition of win7. So, E.g., you could install 64 bit ultimate on that machine and use the 32 bit key. Since you said "preinstalled", I assume its OEM windows- your machine would have a rainbow sticker with a key on it, thats the one.

In short, find a 64 bit installer for ultimate, clean install windows then activate online with the sticker key.

I'm also assuming you're not a pirate wanting to give up sin.

I appreciate all the replies! I understand about ebay, it was just a little cheaper than the retail, and the guy had a lot of feedback reselling them. But I understand the caution.
And I didn't think the 32 bit key would work on a 64 install, but thanks for the info. Good to know!
