Windows 7: 22nd and Pre-Orders

22 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
22nd and Pre-Orders

As many of you know I was graced with getting a copy of 7 Ultimate bought for me and I am sitting waiting to see if it shows up today. Currently at the doctors and worried that I won't be home to sign for it. pre order set to be delivered the 22nd I think. I can't get in touch with my benefactor to get a tracking number.

Was wondering if everyone that wanted delivery for the 22nd is getting it on time.

I have a second question also, if the package ships with 2 discs one 32bit and the other 64bit could one give the media(the one not being used) away so the person just has to buy the license? I was asked this question and wasn't sure how to answer so I thought i would ask here for a quick answer.

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

Ah! But can't he install it using his key and when registering then provide the 2nd purchased key.
I know you could do this with Windows XP - it kept coming up with it's not a genuine copy until you registered with an unused key.

Mine was due for posting today - not received. So I downloaded it and at 2nd attempt to download it has worked.

Now to install!

I'm not aware of any way you can purchase just a key. Just go to BestBuy and get another box.

Well I didn't get it or any tracking info so I have no clue what happened and I only have a few days left on my re-arm.

I had two pre-orders for my workstation and notebook - one from Amazon and one from Newegg. The Amazon one is set to ship on the 26th. The Newegg one arrived today. I just entered the key in my current RTM install which was set to need a third rearm in three days and it said Thank You. No pain, no fuss.
