  • A. This is a full stand alone version with all the bells and whistles. It comes on DVD. You can wipe (reformat) the hard drive clean and install the OS. This is not an upgrade copy! Depending on your current version of Windows, you may have to back up all your data before installing the OEM version. This is the most preferred method (clean install) of installing a new version of Windows!

  • A. This is a complete, non-upgrade, stand-alone version of Windows. You can install it on 1 computer only, and only on that computer ever after. You also won't get any tech support from Microsoft. Yes it comes on a DVD, and it's easy to install and get running. It works great, at half the price.

  • A. I believe I'm correct in saying if you install 64 bit over an existing 32 bit OS, it will completely rewrite like a clean install and you will have to start from scratch. Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall it after you install the 64 bit version. Also if you're running more then 4 gigs of Ram, 32 bit will only recognize 4 gigs of it. You have to run 64 bit to get full use out of any Ram over 4 Gb.

  • A. As long as your hardware is compatible with a 64-bit operating system you would be able to do that. Recommendation is to perform a backup of your system. In all honesty most hardware is compatible with a 64 bit system at this point, with the exception of low end netbooks. My biggest recommendation however is that if this is an OEM operating syste that you would be formatting and installing over, DONT, as there would normally be a reason you are only running a 32- bit OS, usually your processor

  • A. Hello there, If the computer is specifically designed for the 64-bit version of Windows, it won't work on the 32-bit version of Windows. (However, most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows do work on the 64-bit version of Windows.) Device drivers designed for the 64-bit version of Windows don't work on computers running a 32-bit version of Windows. For more information, please visit: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions I hope this was helpful to you.

For most users I will admit Home Premium is more than enough. However, for those looking to perform a little more home networking, run some older programs, etc this is the best bang for your buck. I have had the pleasure of having an MSDN account (Microsoft Software Developers) Academically for 3 years (Unfortunately nolonger have it) and this is my favorite flavor of Windows hands down. It is VERY compatible and easy to use by comparison to Windows 8. A note to those who are loading a non OEM product onto their systems, Windows Vista/7/8 are all VERY connection oriented, and need to be hooked up to the internet for installation to go correctly to get *Most* of your drivers, otherwise be prepared to have driver disks at the ready. I made the unfortunate mistake of erasing my flashdrive that had 7 on it to create a windows 8 drive, which I then loaded onto a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop, and wish I would not have due to video card compatibility issues. For those upgrading to a new Operating system due to XP losing support very soon, I would recommend 7 over 8, whether you choose Home Premium or Professional.

I installed Win7 on an old Dell workstation/server. The unit is so old that it could not boot from the DvD, so I had to image the contents of the DvD onto a thumb drive, and make the thumb drive bootable. It took me a while to figure it all out, but the install went well. I use Win7 at work but used XP at home. I like XP better than Win7, but there is really no choice but to upgrade to Win7 now that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. There are other options like Apple and Linux, but I wanted to ensure compatibility between what I use at work and what I use at home. After the install Microsoft pushed approximately 160 updates to my PC. That took about 18 hours to finish. Overall, I would have rather have stuck with XP - it did what I needed it to do. But if I had to upgrade going the Win7 route was not that bad. One very important thing... you MUST offload all of your data (music, photo's, etc) before you install Win7. Also, you will have to reload all of your applications (like Word and Excel).

During installation, Windows 7 selected a video resolution that was not compatible with my Nvidia GEForce 9500GT dual display adapter, so I sat for a while looking at a black screen while it was waiting for input. After a reboot and selection of low resolution mode from the F8 menu (low resolution was a default in XP installation with user-approved selection of higher resolution) I was able to install the product on the new 1TB drive I had bought for the purpose. Since everything seemed ok I activated the product. Within 24 hours my motherboard died. Since Microsoft now uses all components of a system to generate a validation hash value buying a new motherboard would get my computer running again but the copy of Windows 7 will not (to my understanding) continue to work, as the new has value generated would reflect a different computer. Maybe it's time I looked more closely into Linux.

I bought this for an update to my desktop computer that died. I refused to use Windows 8 and this was cheaper than Fry's price. Installation was easy and it works fine. Nothing more to say.

Had to send the 4-month old computer back to HP for repair so haven't been able to install the W7 product. However, after receiving the software and then reviewing the "System Builder" aspect of the software on various websites, I am concerned that as a retail purchaser I may be unable to get it installed/licensed for general home use. I wish this aspect of the Walmart website ad had emphasized the manufacturer's restrictive use of the software. I am surprised that a retail store would be selling software that the typical customer might be unable to use.

This version of Windows is a must if you plan to build your own system. Once installed, you can customize your desktop, record TV shows (TV card hardware needed) and maintain a home network with other PCs running Windows. I have used this version of Windows for 3 years to operate a home theater PC with great results. I can store music, pictures, videos and movies on NAS drives and access them by other desktops, laptops and tablets using my Home Group network in Windows 7 Professional. I would recommend this version to anyone!

My advancing from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional has greatly increased what my computer can do. I am still in the process of discovery to the many aspects of the program, and I expect to be continually amazed at what it can accomplish. Those who are thinking of upgrading to professional should do so through Wal-Mart, especially since Microsoft wants over $238.00 for the program, but it can be purchased from Wal-Mart at $132.68 total cost. Thank you Wal-Mart for making it affordable.
