Windows 7: Full Retail Version of Pro For Students only 29.99

Hi guys,
I would appreciate your answering my questions.
  1. Am I eligible to upgrade from Windows Vista Ultimate 32 bit OEM ?
  2. Is it possible for me to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate according to the student program for only $29.99? If no, is it possible to upgrade from Windows Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Professional ?
  3. I am going to graduate from my university in the nearest future. Will I still be able to use my newly purchased version of Windows 7 for students to the full extent (tech support and updates) after my graduation from the university?
Thank you in advance for your replies.

To answer your first question: Can I upgrade from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Professional?

Second: The student discount only applies to the Home and Professional versions of Windows 7, although some people got lucky and picked up the Ultimate version anyway. You could call, play dumb and maybe they will give it to you (jk lol)

And finally, the product is yours once you buy it...discounted or not - you could use it for as long as you want.

3 service reps in a row just told me I can only do it thru the digital river 741 website, and that it is only the upgrade for 29.99. Not the full retail version.

Anyone got this problem recently? Have they finally finalized an answer and I missed the gravy train boat?


Edit: I guess 4th one is the charm. I just called back and the 4th guy gave it to me. 29.99 Win7 professional. and I opted for 5 dollar for the discs instead of download.
Awesome. and I asked him 3 times if it was full retail version and he said yes. But I guess we'll see in the confirmation email etc. I recieve soon.

Edit: Edit:
Got my confirmation e-mail. It says -

Thank you for your purchase: Windows 7 Professional
Quantity: 1 $29.99
Subtotal: $29.99 Shipping: $4.99 Tax: $2.83 Total: $37.81


Anyone know if this is FOR SURE full retail version or upgrade? It doesn't say upgrade so I am assuming it is full retail version. and o crap, I forgot to ask if it was 64bit or 32. Do both come in the box?

Thanks for the re-assurance. I decided to call back anyways with their customer support. I too can confirm that I am getting Windows Professional Full Retail Box with 32 and 64bit for the 37 dollars total.

What an excellent deal. If you haven't done this yet, it is completely worth it.

it seems as though they are informing their employees about this so I would act sooner rather than later.
