    I have a laptop with Win 7 Ultimate activated with daz loader. I understand that this is not legal though it shows as genuine and also updates.
    I was thinking of buying a Win 7 Pro license so that I can get a free upgrade to Win 10, because from what I have read, the pirated Windows will not upgrade.
    However, Win 7 Pro is not available on MS store in India and Win 8.1 is very expensive. Can I buy just the product key online from anywhere and change that in my laptop?
    Is a Win 7 purchased license transferable to another computer?

    I would hold back until it goes RTM then we will know exactly what is happening. Also later on if you do need to but windows 7 product key I would be very wary of where you get it especially cheap offers on Ebay e.t.c. only retail license is transferable.

    That will work as John has stated, and/or you can also use Windows Loader that will can insert matching key/cert for you as well. If the system, as stated, came with win7 originally from an OEM.

    You guys should read the OP's other thread before suggesting loader or other oem methods. This may be related.

    Yes $139.99 but links I found earlier. Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 Key Online Price: $34.99, Windows 7 Ultimate 32 and 64 bits £41.84, Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT SP1 OEM Full Version DVD + Product Key £27.00

    That is why I mentioned be very wary of where you get it especially cheap offers.

    CaptainKirk1966, thank you for pointing this out. The other thread he is referring to: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/61952-Microsoft-SAM-audit

    windows.seven - "No the Dell laptop came with Ubuntu and 2 assembled PC's came with nothing. Normally in India people use assembled PC's only not OEM's."

    That ends the debate on activation, I'm sorry for not noticing the other thread prior to posting on this one.

    Yes, it seems a question of where to purchase windows 7 license keys legitimately and most economically ...

    Yes, threads are related. I have windows installed on a machine which came with Ubuntu. So I want to install an original legal version and wanted to know if it can be purchased ecnomically. It's just too expensive here in India.

    Activation is simple as pie, guys.

    I don't see why people still have activation issues?

    Windows 10 will be out in a month...

    You obviously have not read both threads to know what you are talking about.

    The SLIC Toolkit is simply reporting what DAZ loader is feeding it. Can you run it from a bootable flash drive?
