Good evening.

I have the following

1 x laptop running Vista

1 x Desktop running XP

1 x netbook running Windows 7 starter *palm face*

I want all of these systems to be running Windows 7 Home premium.

What is the cheapest way for me to do this?

I was going to buy the family pack, but I believe it will not work with the netbook... Am I correct?

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance.

I have a family pack, purchased much earlier.

Family packs later became unavailable, but I see that MS has restored them


Definitely the way to go, it never hurts to have a router :).


You bet both the 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs, with the same license being able to be used on 3 systems.
