I am planning to upgrade from Vista business to Windows 7
It's an old Dell vostro 200 with an OEM version of Vista Business. I plan to install a new hard drive, upgrade the memory and upgrade to Windows 7.
My question is if I install a new hard drive how will the upgrade version of Windows 7 know that I'm upgrading as vista will no longer be there? I don't want to pay for a full stand alone version of Windows 7. Is this possible?
With the exception of Product Key Cards (PKC’s) distributed with COA’s, Microsoft does not distribute products keys as standalone products. If you see a listing on an auction site, online classified ad, or other online page advertising product keys for sale, it’s a good indication that the keys are likely stolen or counterfeit. If you were to purchase and use a stolen or counterfeit product key to activate Windows installed on your PC, the key may not work for activation, may already be in use on another PC, or it might be blocked from use later by Microsoft when the key is reported stolen.click here
