Doing a clean install on a old dell failed similarly as in the post above (#2648). This machine had plenty of ram and hd space, but a pentium 630 processor, which doesn't contain the necessary features required by win 8. I didn't think it would install, but figure give it a shot. No error messages, just locked up at some point during the install process or right after the first reboot. I'm sure if I looked at the HD there'd be a log file somewhere.
That's an old one! I'm surprised it still functions. All of my Pentium 4 and D based systems have long since died. My 2.4Ghz P4 C ran Windows 7 fine. The mobo apparently wore out though...lol. But then again, I ran it 24/7 for over 5 years.

no way of updating the processor?

I had a Dell just like yours...I sold it prior to getting a refurbed dell that came with Win 7 Ultimate...
Why bother. Dell's products are such garbage, whatever supported processor I'd install would probably not function anyway due to lack of bios update.

I have a really old amd K6 (the slot processor) machine that still works. IMO computers don't really wear out. So long as no component failure occurs, they'll keep on working. Very rare to see a motherboard fail unless it happens early on, or if the machine is abused (harsh environment, overclocked, etc.). The machine above did run win7 just fine, so that's what got left on it.

did you not know that other people can't get it?

others were lucky, including you from how you sound...

I did help out 2 members here get their codes...if you can't help or got nothing else to say, just don't say anything...

hopefully, you won't be needing any help anytime soon....
No, sorry I haven't been following the thread completely. I got my first license a while back and just got another one today. What's the issue?

I know this is answered before but I can't find it and I'm short on time..

I want to buy this but not install it right now. And maybe not install it on the computer I use to buy it.

What's the best option to accomplish this ? Can I download it to an iso and then install it whenever and wherever ?

"Thank you for interest in the Windows upgrade offer. The program has ended."

I guess you can still try using the upgrade assistant...

Mine I got free! first they charge me $ 49.99, did't get the discount even though I had email, as they could't give the partial credit, I was given full credit, ending up for free!
