    Has anyone ordered a product through digital river (like Student specials, home use program, etc) and ordered a disc? Did the disc arive?

    Specifically, if you got the disc, is it a genuine holographic disc?

    Hmmm...I pre-ordered the student pro upgrade. The disk never arrived. Chased with them, they said they would send another. Went on and on, no disk. Finally escalated the matter to MS, they sent a disk. Finally had a disk, full 2 months after ordering.

    Yep, it has the hologram and all and came in a white paper package with various markings including MS. But havent tried it yet, because had already modded bios.

    I bought a dvd windows 7 pro update disk right after it became RTM. It showed up within 3 weeks, has the hologram and came in a white paper package as well like venu stated. The disk worked like it is suppose to.

    Thanks all. I ordered the disc. Hopefully it isn't delayed being shipped, because I've heard horror stories of digital river shipments.

    Even my installs might not be legit, with as affordable as the student pricing is, it's hard to pass up, and the $13 is money well spent to get a holographic disc.

    I ordered Norton Internet Security 2007 3 years ago and symantec contracts thought Digital River and I got the disk when I should have. Yes it was the original disk, worked great and even came in the official nis 2007 jewel case. I have to say from that experience that it works just fine.

    @Venu: Sorry to hear that dude. It was probably just a issue with the shipping system. Like it got lost during shipping or something. IDK for sure why you had the issue though but I am guessing it was because the shipping.

    What "it"? What "same damn error"?

    Besides I was asking if people ordered the disc.
