you could get the upgrade for the 30 and pirate the older os instead of waiting

ok so here's how the call went down. The girl on the phone sounded like a dumb teenager with that twangy, ditzy voice. I'll just call her DB for dumb bitch.

5 mins of waiting...



DB: hey this is microsoft store blah blah blah my name is whatever what can I do for you

me: hey how ya doin, I'm about to buy this student discounted version of windows 7 but I noticed it was upgrade only and currently only have OSX...Will I be able to install this on my computer without having a previous windows installation?

(yes yes, as many of you know, I don't have a mac....I run ubuntu on all of my computers but I didn't really feel like explaining to DB what linux was or how it works etc etc...I thought just saying that I had a mac would be more painless.....ok back to the story)

DB: Um.....one second

(on hold for about a minute)

DB: hey thanks for holding. So are you trying to run windows in parallel?

me: oh, you mean dual booting? Yes I will be dual booting... I just need windows for some of my software at school.

DB: mk please hold

(hold for 30 seconds)

DB: ok you're going to need bootcamp or something like that in order to run windows on your mac

me: yeah...I know how to do it I just want to know if its possible to install windows upgrade without a previous windows installation

DB: OHHH OK! one sec

(hold for 2 mins)

DB: ok you're going to have to have another copy of windows if you want to install an upgrade

me: yes I was expecting that. Is there any way you guys could give me a full version for the same price so I can install this shit on my mac?

DB: um I'm going to have to ask my supervisor, can you hold please?

me: yeah sure...just tell him that I'm just going to pirate windows 7 if you guys don't give me a full version.

DB: *nervous chuckle* ok

(hold for 5 mins)

DB: ok sir we can take care of that for you

me: great, you're the best

DB: thanks! ok now I'm going to need your phone number

me: woah! we just met!

DB: no, for the order haha.

me: ok

(so at this point I gave her all of my info....she punched in the goddamn creditcard info at least 5 times but I was very patient)

DB: ok very well, we're going to send you an email verifying that you're a student and then a rep will call you within 24 hours and finish your order

me: word thanks a lot!

DB: no problem! is there anything else I can do for you?

me: nope that's it, thanks again

DB: alright thanks for calling microsoft whatever home store thing my name was whatever blah blah good bye

me: ok, love you, bye





so that's how you do it if you want the full version instead of the upgrade....it came out to like $37.50 or something like that for windows 7 pro. ALSO, make sure you tell them that you need to be part of your school's network domain and that you need to be upgraded to pro for free.....

so i bought a new computer from best buy a month and a half ago. came with free windows 7 upgrade once it was released, FREE FREE FREE they said, gave me a little pamphlet that says free upgrade and everything, pamphlet just says bla bla when your fready for your FREE upgrade visit www.bestbuy.com/windows7upgrade
just looked at it since its out now so i was gonna see what i had to do to get it, it says on the webpage i have to bring my pc into best buy and pay geeksquad 39.99 to have them install it and that is the only way to get my upgrade discs, i dont need them to install it i know how to insert a disc and go click click next yes.
f***ing thieves if you ask me. that ridicolous, they are getting them from microsoft for free when it is rightfully mine to begin with and then telling me i HAVE to pay them $40 to install them or i cant have em
