Just saw this, the preorder for the upgrade to 7 Pro is $99. Home Premium is $50.
sold out already, i wonder if they'll get more.
Really, I just checked the pro one, says its still in stock.
i already got my upgrade to wind 7 ultimate

Hey everyone, if you still wish to preorder your Windows 7, you can do it strait from Microsoft!!!!!
It's in stock for me. Maybe they updated since then?
(pic taken just now)
it still shows sold out for me! wtf! if i do a forced refresh the buttons appear for a second, then swap to sold out.
They just don't like you Mussels
Just preorder from the Microsoft link man
Can I upgrade from an OEM copy??
OEM copy of what? Vista or XP? If so, sure you can. The whole bummer with this "preorder sale" is the fact that it is only the upgrade version, and one can not preorder Windows 7 Ultimate
Does this mean upgrade as in the old sense where you have to stick in your windows 2000 disc for and XP upgrade or does it have to use the upgrade feature instead of a clean install?
what you can do is install from the disk without a key '30 day trial' and then upgrade that - when the system reboots, you get an option for a fresh install.
So from the one disk, you can upgrade from 7 without a key, to upgrade 7 with a key. takes twice as long, but works around needing a previous OS installed. (and i can install 7 in 15 minutes, seriously. its fast)
Oh well that's weird, but I guess its better than buying the full edition or pirating it. Do you recommend Home premium or Professional. I was kinda leaning towards HP as I can just use VMware instead of microsoft's virtual machine.
I'm going for Home Premium myself. I wasn't gonna buy it until an SP or two came out, but 50$, why the hell not
From my experience Home premium vista actually works better than Ultimate for some weird reason.
less services running by default, most likely.
I cant buy it from the egg anyway, and i think the MS deal is for USA residents only.
edit: yep. USA, canada, china, UK.
Im sure you could get someone to buy it for you. I would even do it then mail you it.
Also you can save a couple dollars using cashback and paypal as well.
i can wait. hanging out for ultimate, to be honest... the RC is on ultimate, and i like it. virtual XP will help me too (i have some "tools" for my wii that will only run in XP)
You can preorder ultimate upgrade as well. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002DHLV8S/?tag=tec06d-20
it comes out on my birthday i dont think i'll have to worry about paying for it *hint hint family*
heh, yea nice one
My dad might buy me the HP upgrade since he's buying the retail ultimate when it hits newegg.
Its kinda of a joke that you can only install it on one PC. I remember when you had unlimited installs with Windows 98 and stuff
Just pre-ordered mine sweet deal
