Hey guys, just a quick question. Ive just bought all my new components for my home build PC and am now looking at buying the OS. I realised that i can get discount on windows 7 and get it for £30 cause im a student. BUT it is a digital download and that isnt any use to me to install on my newly built comp is it? Think i need a cd? They also offer a back-up copy of the bought OS, would this disk be okay for a first time install?

The back up copy of Windows will be OK but it's not difficult to burn your own DVD. Just download the Windows 7 Professional iso image from the link supplied when you sign up, burn a DVD, install and activate using the key they supply via email.

 

Edit: See below, my bad should have said DVD and not CD.

Just decided to bite the bullet and get a full version at the pricier figure. Only because i read of some restrictions coming on the academic version. :(

If you install over a prior copy (or just run the installer over itself) there really aren't any restrictions.
