Where is my Windows 7 upgrade disk Dell?

Update: The very next day I received my disc via an overnight courier:

Windows7DiskDeliveryThe shipping date shows it being shipped 2 days after I received it.    Obviously a broken system.  I have it installed now, I’ll probably post about it here and there over at my twitter stream, watch for more there.

Whereis My Windows 7?Where the hell is Windows 7 disk?  It’s been a few days and the damn screen hasn’t even lit up with; we’re sorry that we can’t achieve something we’ve had months to plan for and a supply chain so long you can’t see the end of it from mars.  I’d imagine that if I was a computer company that was selling the fact that we were going to upgrade everyone who bought a new PC in X amount of time would have an upgrade disk ordered and packaged for each one, even if it wasn’t requested.  I guess that Dell didn’t do that.  They instead used the Just in Time method.  In case people didn’t want to upgrade, because they were deliriously happy with VIST-…oh hell, what does UAC want now?  A.

From all reports, Windows 7 is a big step up and I am really looking forward to putting it to the test here.  I just wish Dell would ship it out or at least acknowledge that I have it ordered.

    What’s worse is that you could get it off the torrents in no time.

  • I’m trying to be very very very careful with this PC so not even the RTM that I have a legit key for is on this one. Jen has the old PC so I am going to wait until I have the official Disc on hand.

    same as you, date of dispatch 01/11/2009 on Dell web site. 02/11/09 date reset to status ‘Order’ no disk no date

  • I received my Disk the VERY NEXT DAY with no update from the website. I’ve installed it now, but the website never changed.

    I have been using windows xp for almost 10 years. Xp is a bit old and I think it is time to upgrade to windows 7. Hope windows 7 is not another version of “Me”. Anyway…thanks for sharing this blog. :)

    If you are thinking of transitioning from Windows Vista to Windows 7, there are two options available to you. One is to use a Windows 7 upgrade disk or a full installation disk of Windows 7. These two options both have advantages and disadvantages.
