Windows 7: Pleez help! Dual boot:Win XP & Win 7 "upgrade" question

14 Oct 2009   #11

Windows Vista Ultimate

Thanks Greg...

I guess I just have to grow some balls and try it to see what happens.

I have a cool little netbook that come packaged with a lot of proprietary programs and crap that almost seem useful and I do not want to take the risk of losing them cuz they are obviosly not supported in Win 7.

That's basically my issue. Well... that and I dont want to waste $30 if I'm going to need to go out and buy a full OS Win 7 disk for $200+

Thanks for all your help.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for choosing Windows 7 Online store.

We understand that you are interested to purchase Windows 7 Upgrade
through our online store.

We apologize for the confusion.

The Windows 7 offered in this promotion is a full version.
You can
install this product even though
you do not have a previous Operating System installed in your computer
or if you want to make a multi
boot using Windows 7. The "Upgrade" included in the product name is just
because Windows 7 is the
latest Operating System Windows developed.
