7 Cheap Ways of getting Windows 7

Recommended Posts

Couple things to keep in mind if you want to go to windows 7.

 

If you buy a new machine with Windows 7 pre installed on it you will NOT get any disk for re installing. You are expected to make an image using the built in Windows 7 imaging and restore feature. Because of this very mickey mouse MS policy you will never be able to do a clean install of Windows 7 unless you buy a copy of Windows 7. You are stuck with the bloated mess the computer manufacturer gives you. Sure you can try and uninstall all the junk you are going to get with the machine but you will never get to the state it would be if it was a clean install. You will have to buy a Windows 7 disk your self and install from it to get a clean install.

 

If and When you decide to buy a copy of Windows 7 DO NOT waste your money on the full install disk. Get a upgrade disk. This will install Windows 7 on your machine even if you have an empty HHD with no OS on it. It's very easy to do no need for the full install disk.

Most people buy from a big box type store like Best Buy for example or direct from the computer manufacturers like Dell or HP and you will not get a disk. What you will get is a pre installed Windows 7 with a massive amount of crap along with it. You can try and uninstall all of the junk but good luck getting all the left overs.
