Lighten up hombre, you might be taking things a little too personal. As long as they get the help who cares who said what.

kenmist,
From a senior: Welcome to SevenForums.

Let's "get 'er dun".

The Win 7 Pro-- do you have the 20 character Product key for Win 7 Pro?

do not include the product key. Just need to know if you have the Product Key for Win 7 Pro.

It wasn`t meant in a bad tone. Not at All.

Sorry, I guess being a senior doesn't cut me any slack. OK , I went to the mydigitallife website and downloaded the Win 7 Home Premium link. It was an iso image file which almost took two hours to open (WinZip) and download. It now resides somewhere on my computer in a temporary folder, all 3.0 Gb. I'm suppose to burn a CD? At 700 MB per disk that's 4+ disks. Am I correct or have I messed up again. Seems like using my Win 7 Professional disk would have been a lot easier, but maybe I'm missing something again?

kenmist,
You are not far ahead of me at all.

Now, before I answer any questions.

Please answer mine. (See, I'm also old, stubborn and cranky!)

Do you have your 20 character Product ID code? Yes/No

Don't worry about it, unfortunately you have messed up, nothing we can't deal with though.

The ISO you downloaded should have stayed an ISO, not been opened with WinZip.

It needs to be burnt (copied) on to a DVD not a CD.

I'll agree it might have been easier to use the Pro disc, since there are fewer steps involved, we can walk you through the other steps if you want to try again.

Do you have a blank DVD disc?

Answer my question and I can show you how to put that on a usb stick.

There is zero sense of trying to install anything without a valid key for the product.

Yes the key karl is talking about will be on a sticker like this on your computer,



For the Home Premium.

The one for your Pro version is inside the unopened package you mentioned earlier.

Are you reading all of the posts here, including the blue links which are illustrated tutorials?

I think you missed Post 7 which answered all of your questions.
