Hi Terence,

Tell em your gonna forward that email to MS, Should be an interesting reply from the retailer and MS MIGHT send you a free, (w10) licence key

How to Tell - Home

It breaks MS EULA licencing. COA sticker keys are NON-Transferrable

PS
as its a Vista machine, it will also NOT have a W7 marker, which will require a call to MS to Activate it

None of those so will go to PCWorld. They have knowlegable technicians.



BTW when I install W7 does it keep, eg., graphic card drivers, etc ? Roy said W7 come with drivers & I'm not sure what he meant by that.

Hi Terence

W7 comes driver complete - well for most things
there are generic Core drivers supplied so you should be able to get up and running for graphics etc
(they will update via Windows update once your on line - connect it via your ethernet)
But it was never setup for every driver, usually easy to find tho.

As for PCWorld, they will push you towards W10


On another note do you live down south, if so have a look here
Front Page ⋆ Jamies Computers

They are genuine MS accredited refurbishers and might have some

further info W7/W10
MS have an Ease of Access option for people who have sight/sound difficulties and do offer discounted,
(and sometimes FREE Upgrades)

That seems a good idea - though I expect they will only win10 on that scheme. I remember hearing about it a while ago. I don't know if they are doing it atm.

Bon jour Roy,

The machine is hard wired so update is automatic. The recipient when 7'd is getting wifi from the flat below him thus the need for the adapter. I gave him a XP 12" dell laptop a few years ago & that latches on in an instant.

It was a PCWorld tech. that suggested W7 as it's like XP & works well for emailing, etc. He thought 10 would be a mistake.

I'm 2 miles east of Fordingbridge (west edge of the New Forest) & 25 (?) from Jamie's Computers. Thanks for the link - they sound interesting. I use Supported Computing in Ferndown. Joe the owner is first class & has done amazing work for me. I'll ring Jamie and will pop down there somewhen, sat nav willing that is.

I appreciate the support you all give,
Best Wishes,
Terry.
