Windows 7: Windows 7 Bulk Purchase

Windows 7 Bulk Purchase

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine was asking how he can purchase over 30 copies of Windows 7. I'd love to point him to my local retailer but they don't offer discounts for bulk purchases.

I checked eBay out but those stories of sellers selling fake copies is not comforting at all.

Does anyone know where my friend can safely purchase legitimate copies?

Hi there
A legal way to do this is with a VOLUME LICENSE (or VL) system. Contact Ms as they will STILL supply W7 via this route.

Large corporations do this and so they image a Windows system and deploy it on to their company computers without every one of them needing a separate key etc.

If you were buying 30 copies of Windows this would also be far cheaper than 30 RETAIL copies too.

(A trip to some outlets in the seedier parts of Shanghai might get you what you want - but I'd be a bit dubious as to the Source of the copies though).

Buying in volume by "non standard" outlets will only lead to grief in the end. You CAN use legitimate "Used copies" provided the originals are RETAIL (not OEM) and they have been wiped from the previous users machines - but I wouldn't go down that route for Bulk copies. For a single copy - nothing wrong with that if you can find a person who has upgraded to W8 and no longer needs their copy of W7.

Cheers

Hi,

Where can one contact MS online? I've seen some sites but I got confused real fast. Also, what would be their requirements? He's paying me a small amount of money to get everything in order and to process it for him.

Sounds interesting, do they use sysprep?

I would imagine that this would be cheaper versus buying 30 retail copies. I've seen the cost for getting 30 retail copies and it did not look pleasant.

I doubt that he will be agreeing to the idea of getting used copies.

Thanks,
oreo

Have a look through the local MSFT partner list to see if you can spot one that supplies the software - https://www.microsoft.com/business/e...a-partner.aspx
