Genuine Windows7 download after invalidation of winXp RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running on WinXp sp3, I ran the validation through the microsoft portal. Upon identifying the Xp to be not-genuine, the Ms offered to help by offering the Windows 7. Continuing with it, i bought the Win7 Home premium and paid for it online. receipt generated and was advised that the back up cd would reach me in about 3 weeks. but, I was not directed to any download link for the win7. please advise. the order number is 9000126953 dated 22nd july 2011.

  • Hello SRChandar,

    Unfortunately, the WGA kit does not provide for download software.

    If you do not have a copy of the Windows 7 installation disk (or able to borrow a a disk from a friend) then you will need to wait for the Windows 7 disk being sent to you.  Here is the Frequently asked questions for the Windows Genuine Advantage Kit you purchased http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932301

     

    Note: if you do borrow a Windows 7 disk from a friend, be sure it is a Retail disk, not an OEM disk that come with a PC that had Windows pre-installed.

     

    Thank you,
