Windows 7 reinstall dvd with non working hd on ebay

Hello guys,

I've been searching for a windows 7 ultimate dvd with product key on ebay, and found a lot of cheap ones that come with a non working hard drive.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Dell-...Sw14xWKAoa


My question is, will those reinstall dvds work if I'm upgrading from windows 7 home? Do they contain a product key? Will it wipe everything on my hd?


Thank you!

Read the listing you linked to. It clearly states "Does NOT include Windows Certificate of Authenticity or Activation code". Windows now embeds the product key in the UEFI (BIOS), getting a hold of a dell disk for a different version won't upgrade you to that version (you used to be able to do this with windows xp and vista, but it could still cause WGA problems).

Dell sells replacement media themselves for less than these ebay clowns. The fact that they have to sell broken hardware with it to comply with ebay's rules should be a red flag.

Features of different editions of windows 7 and windows 10 vary some. Windows 10 Pro might meet your needs. If you're coming from Windows 7 Home, the pro pack runs $99.
