If it's a Dell, make sure you get/use the OEM install disk, not the standard install disk. You won't be able to validate it with your Dell key unless you use the correct one.

This is no longer possible, as of yesterday. Emails such as this one were sent to all students who had taken advantage of the offer:

Dear Students,

Due to a large influx of NON-computing (IT) students joining ACM just to get a copy of Windows 7 Final Release, it had to be taken out of the Microsoft Developer Academic Alliance package offered to ACM Student Members. Windows 7 Beta remains among a LOT of other software.

The Developer Academic Alliance is supposed to be JUST FOR COMPUTING-TYPE STUDENTS. Microsoft offers another package, Dream Spark, for those non-computing students.

I encourage you to check out ACM Student Membership for "real" since we really do offer a great bargain — free e-mentoring, free software from other companies, the digital edition to Communications of the ACM, Crossroads Magazine, etc., etc.

Have a look: [www.acm.org]

ACM Director of Membership

I have a 3 year old Dell (Inspiron 6400) and I upped Win7 Ultimate on it with no problems. As a matter of fact it runs faster and smoother with Win7 than it did with XP Media Ed.

Check PM.
