I guess you could always contact MS and ask them. If you're a college student, you can get a key for Win 7 Pro from MS for $65.

I guess one question would be what happened to the CD key that goes with the disk you have? And no worries about the double post I deleted the duplicate. Best Buy wasn't 'pulling your chain' they were trying to make a sale, and doing what they are licensed to do.

I just helped my daughter get Win 7 Pro from the MS "Ultimate Steal" site. Had to submit a copy of her class listing and wait about 2 weeks. After it's determined you are eligible, you can buy the software. They will send you a key by email and a link to DL the software. If you already have the DVD, you won't need to DL the ISO image.
