Re: windows XP ultimate

Try again with a genuine Microsoft version.

Johnny's web site?

Which web site is that?

Since Windows 7 is not generally downloadable from any other than Microsoft it makes me wonder if this is a pirated version.

If so, your best bet is to get the official genuine version of Windows 7 Ultimate.

Here's the "Official" download page: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/default.aspx
