Hi,

But the only Issue is I have purchased if on 23-May-2009.

 

My Query is: Am i eligible to get Win 7 upgrade from HP by paying its cost to HP?

I would like to add one more thing in my original querty it is -

 

On this url: http://h20426.www2.hp.com/program/windows7/upgrade/ap/en/index.html

 

 

If you meet all three eligibility requirements, then you may proceed to order your Windows® 7 Upgrade Kit from HP


» Read Before you Order -

 

Click in the > Read Before you Order. You will see a message on the top of the screen which says -

 

 

Read Before you Order

HP has contracted with a third party company to fulfill the Windows® 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP. Orders will be accepted June 26, 2009 until February 15, 2010. Proof of purchase must be submitted and postmarked no later than March 1, 2010. You will receive your Windows® 7 Upgrade Kit after Windows® 7 becomes publicly available October 22, 2009. For additional information, please read Know Before You Upgrade

 

If eligibility requirements are not met, you may be able to upgrade to Windows® 7 upon public availability October 22, 2009.

 

So, the query now is "if eligibility requirements are not met" like in my case -

    -> PC is capable for upgrade to Windows 7

   -> But purchase date is 23-May-2009

 

So, can I eligible to get the Windows 7 Upgrade from Hp by paying its cost to HP !!!

Instead of paying HP, you can pay Microsoft and pre-order Windows 7. They're offering W7 Home Premium Upgrade for $50, and W7 Professional Upgrade for $100. Check it out at the link below.

I think that the only think you'll recieve with the upgrade is the W7 OS, and nothing else. You can always download the drivers from HP's website though. I'm sure they'll be made available.

It's unlikely that HP will offer the upgrade for a price. But I'm pretty sure the drivers will be available as a free separate download from the Support And Drivers page for your product. Just wait until W7 is released and check if the drivers has been released.
