Can I purchase an online download link of Windows 7 Home Premium with key to upgrade from Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a laptop that is running Windows XP and have confirmed with the laptop manufacturer that I can upgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium. I searched online for purchasing Windows 7 Home Premium and found some sites that offer a Product Key, Download Link, and License key. Is this an option I can use? If so, can it just simply be downloaded onto the laptop that has Windows XP running? 

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

    The upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft.

    If you need to install or reinstall Windows 7 you can use this page to download a disc image (ISO file) to create your own installation media using either a USB flash drive or a DVD.

    BTW, if you want to back up data, you can refer to this article.
