Yes of course it can.

The installation disk will be provided in an ISO format. If it isn't, you can download the relevant edition from here

Just use the key that you get with the correct version.

Ironically enough you would still need a running computer to download it to. The download is in the form of an iso disc image which you can either burn directly to DVD or extract to a usb drive. If you're using the usb drive there are a couple more steps but google's a god for that.

So then... Is there no legal way to just buy a COPY of Home Premium instead of the whole package with the CD all over again?

Digital FULL version. It's just I still don't understand why Microsoft don't sell Product keys on their own instead of the whole package.

If you buy it through the Microsoft Store you can get it via digital download

You are buying the key, it's up to you what you choose to do with the disc or digital download that comes with it. However, Microsoft have got to assume you don't already have installation media.

Might be a dumb question but - Can you do a full Windows 7 Install with an upgrade disc without already having an OS installed?


Hi :) 

Yes as long as you have the legal key....

All the best Brett :)
