Q: Beta upgrade This thread is locked from future replies

Hmm.. so.. this beta version ran out yesterday and i just got my upgrade license thingie.. skipping around the net i realised that it's not possible to activate windows 7 beta like you would windows 7 home premium to proffesional for example.. i wasn't given any cd with this upgrade license, just a cd key - what am i to do? 

i could ofcourse just buy another version of windows that has a cd. then again.. wasting 100$ ain't my favorite thing to do..

Can i download an image of the cd from your website? i saw some rather complicated solutions around the net and i can't really be bothered with them to be honest

Hope you can help


Edit: Reading a bit more on your website it seems it was made so on purpose, not being able to upgrade that is..?

Answer

A:

You state: "i wasn't given any cd with this upgrade license, just a cd key - what am i to do?"

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do without a genuine Windows 7 installation disc.  I would suggest that you try and get a refund from the seller of the Windows 7 upgrade product key, then purchase a genuine "full version" edition of Windows 7 and perform a "clean install".  You can purchase Windows 7 from the

Microsoft Store.

Carey,

If the product key is valid and not a conterfeit key then the Windows 7 .ISO file can be downloaded.
