Re: windows 7

Welcome to the forums Joseph

 

 

Where did you buy the laptop, and did you check the specifications before doing so?

As you've now found out, not all laptops/desktop systems qualify for the free upgrade to Windows 7.

If it had been eligible for the free upgrade, that fact would almost certainly have been mentioned - specifically, next to the pre-installed OS

From experience, I've found that:   “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
