Hi there my girlfriend bought her mum a Dell Inspiron Mini 1011 and Windows 7 Home Premium pack
windows 7 came with a Product Key because the Dell notebook does not come with a CD Drive and the steps are
1.Click the start button 2. Search "windows Anytime Upgrade" 3. Click Windows anytime upgrade key then click enter an upgrade key 4. Blah blah blah.......
but i can only find the "windows anytime upgrade" on my vista laptop and don't know how to upgrade hers to windows 7
is there some way you can get the windows anytime upgrade on xp ? or would i need to install windows 7 from a torrent and just use the product key wee have got ?
any help would be great and her mum would be very grateful

Windows Anytime Upgrade is a Vista+ thing... nothing like it exists for XP. If you want to install Windows 7, you're going to need an external USB optical drive or you will have to create a USB key with the Windows 7 installation on it.
I would call Dell and ask them for the Windows 7 url so you can download the upgrade or "Pitch a Fit" so they'll agree to do the upgrade for you since they sold you the key.
