Hi, I have a Toshiba Laptop that came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (OEM). I have done a Clean install of Windows 7 and no longer need Windows Vista. My Friend now needs an OS for his PC. Could I install Vista without encountering any activation issues?
If your friend is a student (or has children who live with him are), he can buy Win7 at drastically discounted rates via click here - they start at under £40 click here. Read FAQs before buying click here. Official MS info click here, click here. This MS link click here mentions the software4students site so you know it's legit.
Another place I can think of is new/secondhand from eBay. Don't buy OEM (only full retail) if it has been used previously for the reasons discussed above.
Or, from online forums that allow trading (buying & selling), like the AV Forums click here (only retail software allowed). You'll need to register & start a fresh 'Wanted' thread in the 'Computer Classified Adverts' section. Once you log in, other members trading score (like eBay) will be visible to you. G
