I have installed build 7100 of Win 7 on our home computer and got it set up just the way we want it. I do not want to go back to Win XP, which is what we were running before.
Soon the RC copy will be rendered unuseable, and I want to upgrade legitimately, but ~$370 is a lot of money.
My question is: what is the least expensive way of upgrading to a full copy of Win 7 Professional (or Ultimate if not too much more expensive)?
I have read on the net about how to alter the some settings so that you can just use an upgrade disk rather than a full copy.
I have a friend coming accross from the US soon. Could he buy a copy there that I could use?
I have relatives in the UK. Could they buy a copy and ship it here?
Will copies of Win 7 that originate outside NZ work in NZ?
Does anyone have experience with this, or a report of how they did it?
