Windows 7: Using full keys on downloaded upgrade versions

Using full keys on downloaded upgrade versions

I've ordered seven copies of Windows 7, five full versions on pre-order from a retailer, plus Home Premium Upgrade and one Professional Upgrade download version from the Microsoft Student deal: Microsoft UK Education - Home - Ultimate Steal


Now I hear that the pre-ordered copies will not arrive for FIVE DAYS after the release date. Will I be able to use my "full" keys if I use the downloaded upgrade versions to install?

Hello Nigel,

In Vista you could, but it's not known yet if you can with Windows 7.

As it happens, the five full versions on pre-order arrived today!
