It sounds like an Upgrade version of Windows 7 not a std. OEM version. It also suggests it was a mfg. (30) pack? Did you purchase this from a reputable source? I think you need a normal OEM version but perhaps someone else has experience with this exact version you have? It may install but I'd want to know BEFORE I broke the seal and tried...

So davcon, any idea why this statement about needing the OPK install as well then?
Where does this statement come from?
I'll be honest i've never heard of it till now(OPK)
Just looked it up and don't understand how it applies to an average joe with a home-built pc.
You can delete those btw.
What mobo is it specifically?
Is the hdd clean and wiped?
1. That statement is right on the package with a link to Microsoft on the subject.
2. Can't delete the triple posts.
3. MOBO = ASUS P8Z68 V-Pro
4. Band new build - nothing installed at all.
No worries dude just install the dvd.
I just grabbed my O/S pack and read the stupid OPK thing on the sleeve lol!
Never read it before and i've done half a dozen builds this past year with these builders packs all from NCIX.
Your're good to go.
Jim --- A bit confused by your product listing -- according to what you posted you have a 30 pack license which would be used by an OEM to install WIN 7 to 30 different machines but the link you posted to the product from NCIX shows a regular 1 license OEM version --- Could be NCIX messed up and sent you 30 licenses or NCIX may be purchasing 30 pack licenses and reselling them individually which they shouldn't be !
If it is the 30 pack then you got a good deal for $119 but chances are they are buying the bulk 30 pack licenses and then repacking and reselling them individually which is a bit of a grey area on the legality of doing so and I'm not sure if MS allows it since they discount them in bulk.
To be honest, I was wondering about that '30 Pack' as well.
So I double and triple checked the item number.
It is indeed # 45271.
I read many of the reviews looking for some clues about the installation process and no one seemed to mention anything about the what I asked in my initial post except that a few times the reviews said 'installation was easy', leading me to believe that no one went through the whole process of different computers.
But there are 2 different descriptions on the package.
The other one doesn't mention the '30 Pack' at all.
Home Premium Edition
That's it. I'm wondering if there is a labeling error.
That's an oem builders o/s i've bought 2 of them from NCIX for two seperate builds.
Just install it already on your new build.
It will be useable on one build only =tied to that mobo.
Damn are you serious about the 1 mobo? I am replacing mine I had no idea I needed to put aside money for a new Windows 7. I thought since I am keeping my harddrvie and just replacing the Mobo, Ram and CPU that I could still use my windows 7 copy.
