just totally frustrated.

is there a legitimate vendor that I can trust to sell me a downloadable version of w7?

just got off the chat line with the nice people at Microsoft and they say I have to drive to the store to get a copy. Fishooks and poppycock!

surely, there is a legitimate vendor that doesn't require me to drive to the store?

aarg!

I'm sure that somewhere out there someone is willing to sell you a download, but it will not be one that is recognized and supported. In person or shipped to you is the only way to have a legitimate version of Windows. You need to have a physical disk to own a copy of Windows.

FYI -

There is absolutely no way that anyone at Microsoft knows what's going on re Win7 purchasing.

They referred me to Amazon.

If this isn't planned obsolescence, I don't know what is.

You can order from Amazon, that's where I bought mine.. but you cannot download your purchase. Only a physical copy is recognized on install.

Anything short of an original disc (try any number of computer vendors... just had a newsletter from one today listing Win7 64 bit for $139 and Home Premium for $99). Can't download a genuine Win7 install that I know of.

cool - thanks -

Always good to get confirmed by WebmasterWorld FOObees!

New (used dell E6430) machine is now downloading a trial copy of win 8.1, just to look around, while I wait for the DVD to show up from Amazon.

I've been completely assimilated by the borg.

Physical copies! How quaint.
