Solved!

[Windows 7] Free or not, i am really confused!?

HP Recommended

Hello,

 

 

This week i sended some e-mails to hp with the question: is windows 7 free? the answer: nothing, not even 1 e-mail back.

So i came here, forum's are always beter.

 

 

 

Loads of websites and communities are saying that windows 7 will be free if you bought your notebook between 26 june? and 31 october 2010, i bought mine 1 july, so i was ordering my upgradekit, it said 24,99 euro... naw never mind he...

i thought that i just had to download it, since it's an action to get rid of vista, since it had so many bugs and it just failed?

 

 

i really want to know how and where to get the free version.

 

i am using vista home premium 32bit

HP pavilion DV 7 series

bought: 1july 2009

 

bought at: Officecentre Zaandam, the netherlands

os language: Dutch

condition: nice

required specs: yes, 4gb ram, Ati radeon HD series, 300gb hd, 2 hds, one 10gb, splitted?

 

 

please help me out, i am 16 years old, and i just want the free windows 7

 

 

 

Kind regards

Yoni slot

The Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade disk costs $120, Professional costs $200, and Ultimate costs $220. This is excluding shipping. You're paying approx $37 including shipping instead. You do the math.

Hi Yoni,

 

Please check on this web page if your Unit is eligable:

 

http://h41112.www4.hp.com/promo/win7web/nl/nl/

 

Again, as stated on the website in your native language:

 

Welkom bij het optionele Windows® 7-upgradeprogramma van HP. Met dit programma kunt u een Windows® 7-upgradekit van HP bestellen indien uw pc* aan de vereisten voldoet. U kunt vandaag al op deze website uw Windows® 7-upgradekit bestellen. U ontvangt het pakket nadat Windows® 7 op de markt is gebracht.

 

If your Laptop is eligable on the website, you need to order the product; When Windows 7 is launched you will then be able to upgrade Kit for your HP Unit.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Thanks,
Michael

How much does the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP cost?

There is no charge for the Windows 7 Upgrade Option Program from HP; however, shipping, handling, and other fees (including taxes depending on local and state laws) might apply depending on the retailer or reseller where you purchased your eligible computer."
