Windows 7: Windows 7 Family Pack Question

23 Oct 2009   #11

Win 7 Pro 64 Bit

Yes...would be nice to know if the Family pack came with the standard retail installer that includes 32 and 64 bit installers. I would also like to know if it allows transfer (unlike the OEM versions). That said, what I have read implies that it supports both 32 and 64 bit...and I suspect that it also supports transfer since it is not an OEM product.

Regardless, at $150, it's a bargain...but at $124.46, it's a steal...and that is its price at my local Sam's Club as of today...and according to their web site, it's in stock and available for pickup.

Man, if I didn't get the student deal, I would buy this in a heartbeat...even if I only needed one license. It's only marginally more expensive than OEM...and OEM is non-transferable *and* requires you to choose either a 32 bit or 64 bit product. Heck, you could even eBay the one or two license keys that you don't need.

Windows 7 32 bit

Remote desktop is of no interest to me. I might want to stream media from my HTPC, but I understand that HP has that capability built-in.

I might need to run a virtual XP machine on one of the PCs, but for that I am going to use VMware. I was not terribly impressed with XP Mode.

Question concerning Windows 7 Family Pack Upgrade
Later in the month I'll be helping my dad build his new PC, and I've been leaning towards the Windows 7 Family Pack so we can upgrade all our PCs to Win7 64-bit. The only problem with that is the fact that it is an upgrade version. Right now I still have my Windows 7 32-bit OEM CD, so I've been...

Family Pack-XP 32 Bit to WIndows 7 64 bit
I would like to know if it is possible to use the Windows 7 Family pack (3 PC's) to upgrade from XP 32 bit to Windows 7 64bit. The price is very tempting rather than buying 3 copies of Windows 7 for my three computers. All 3 (2-Desktops & 1-Laptop) are 64 bit processors but had XP 32 bit installed....
