Windows 7?

I am looking to use Windows 7 (32-bit) on my iMac desktop (by partitioning my hard drive).  My system is older (MacOS Sierra - Version 10.12.6).  Where would be the best place to purchase said software?

You are taking your chances anywhere you buy it now, as Microsoft no longer sells it.

You can try, but no guarantees if it is legit or not these days.


You do not buy a Product Key by itself, as they are normally stolen/pirated, Volume Licenses which are not for private use, or MSDN keys which are not to be sold by the original subscription holder.

Make sure that you buy the complete sealed package (DVD, license)
