Known issues with Windows 7 at IU
Following is continually updated information about the status of known university-wide Windows 7 issues.
|Available license keys are upgrade-only.||The Windows 7 disks supplied to the IU bookstores contain upgrade-only license keys. Users must have any existing version of Windows already installed on the computer's hard drive before installing Windows 7, or else the product key will fail. This will affect Apple Boot Camp users, Windows Virtual Machine installations, users with a corrupt or replaced hard drive, and users who have had a hard drive wiped for security reasons.||UITS is working with Microsoft to resolve this problem.||September 18, 2009|
