MS Vista to Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased Windows 7 upgrade, and after 2 days of searching, I found out I have to buy Windows 7 starter kit...no one told me about that.  Why would I have to buy a starter kit when I already have Vista???  I think I will go back to a Mac....

    Hmmmm..... that's odd. I just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista and I did NOT have to buy a Windows 7 starter kit.

  • You do not need a "Starter Kit"

    Check the "I'm running Windows Vista on my PC. Can I buy the upgrade version of Windows 7?" post. Lots of good info there.

    Also why were you searching for something else to install with the upgrade? Did you try to install the upgrade and not succeed?
