  1. It sounds like you're running the RC rather than a retail copy.

    Yes, you need an activation key. To get it you buy a retail copy of Windows 7.
  2. it will shut down every 2 hours because basically it is a trial,ijack is right you need to make a retail purchase now!
  3. A retail copy costs too much.
    I would recommend you to buy a HP oem windows 7
  4. Retail upgrade is the best option.
  5. Hello newcomer,

    You can perform a clean install from a Windows 7 upgrade version however you will have to have a valid previous copy of Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows Vista installed to validate the upgrade and activate the product key. Please note that when migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 you will not have an "in place upgrade" option. You will however have the option to select "custom" install when prompted. The Windows 7 install process will then copy all of your data in "My Documents" over to a Windows.old folder within Windows 7 itself. All applications and documents stored in other locations will have to be reinstalled / transferred manually.
