I just purchased windows 7 home premium upgrade, and i must have done some foolish mistake and this is how it started. I put in my toshiba recovry cd in because i recall the guy at staples saying i have to formart my hard drive, so i did so. Than once completed, i had no operating system, so i loaded the 32 bit cd and installed that, not knowing i need a genuine copy of xp to activate windows 7. Now i have less than 30 days to activate windows 7 without the ability to reinstall my old xp recovery cd. I got no idea what to do or what i did ? I was hoping you fine folks could set me in the right dirrection. ..... I feel like i wasted $140 because it won't work. but so far on this trail or what ever, I windows 7.
