Trying out a test for Windows 7 before buying

  tomei 14:58 01 Oct 2010

Is there a way of 'testing' Windows 7 before buying/installing please? Would love to 'see' how Win7 works before I go ahead and buy. Sounds quite complicated for a beginner!

not complicated for a beginner, you will enjoy adjusting.

always the PCA forum it you get stuck no matter how small the problem is.

If you have a spare hard drive, you could download the Windows 7 DVD (as an .ISO file) and install it in your spare drive without requiring a Product Key. That will let you try it for 30 days before a Product Key is required.

I have a Win 7 DVD that I downloaded but cannot recall the site I got it from. Try this one click here

I went from XP to W7, and ran a "dual boot" for a few weeks.I soon ditched XP and have not looked back.I even kept a clone of my XP for a while.
My advice would be to run the MS Windows 7 advisor, and if all is well, go for it!
