I want to upgrade all the computer in my family's household (a mixed of Vistas and XPs) to Windows 7 before I go back to school in another state. Unfortunately, the Windows 7 Family pack has been discontinued in the US but I was able to find packs that are sold for a premium over the original price on eBay. Even though they are more expensive, they are still cheaper than getting individual licenses.
My worries is that the ones being sold on eBay is not genuine. Being unemployed and having no income, this would be my last gift to my family so wanted them to be valid and genuine. I tried to reach Microsoft to ask but was directed here. Can anyone check to see if these are valid family packs? I would probably bite the bullet and buy two packs.
According to the post, it comes along with a certificate of authenticity. The price is not too good to be true (which is an indication of counterfeit software) since it sells for a premium over the original cost. What worries me is that the seller is somewhat new and there is no retail packaging.
If there is a good possibility that it is not genuine, I will probably not upgrade the computers.
