Where to Buy Windows 7 Ultimate Product Key

I built a computer recently (as in three days ago). I have downloaded an ISO of Windows 7 Ultimate from some site I forget. It was labeled as being legal as the copies came with a 30 day trial, not as a full version. I was planning on waiting to purchase the full license later. But certain things are making it so that I need to purchase a key now (right now). All options in the store I see are for the DVD+Key. Where can I just purchase only the key as I already have a DVD I burned the ISO to? The Windows Store is trying to shove Win 8 down my neck, but I heard bad things about 8.

Unfortunately, you need a license, you have to purchase boxed package, only Microsoft retailed the product key and they no longer do so.

 

You can make your purchase and rearm your installation in trial mode until you get the package.

 

Click Start, type: cmd

Right click CMD

Click Run as administrator

At the command prompt, type:

slmgr.vbs -rearm

 

Hit Enter

 

You can do this up to 3 times which will extend your usage for 180 days total.

 

That should give you ample time until you receive the full package:

 

Full version - Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
