Windows 7: UPGRADE or FULL Disk

10 Oct 2009   #1


Many writers say: Microsoft has not changed there minds over the provision on CLEAN Install with UPGRADE Disk.
"Upgrade" from Vista 32 bit to 7 64 bit?

My reason to SAY: BUY the UPGRADE DISC.

Seems I'm the only STUPID person to buy a UPGRADE version of VISTA.
cheap or smart to save the $100.00 your decision, after you read the Vista Manual..

PS: you can cancell the FULL RETAIL and order a UPGRADE any time prior to the DISc actually being SHIPPED.

I don't class myself as stupid but I bought the full retail version, well I preordered it and at 44.97 think I have a bargain, I know I'll not get it at that price again, is the upgrade cheaper than that
