Windows upgrade comes with its own key and is easy to install on a comuter that has an existing genuine OS.

You cant upgrade XP to Win 7. You will have to do a new install, you will then need to restore all your documents and programs from disks or memory sticks.

But you will not be able to upgrade XP, you will have to carry out a clean install, although the upgrade disc will do this. Make sure you back up.

Rocker each Os (Opperating System) has its own individual license key & you must NOT let anyone else use them! they are unique to you!

you also cannot use the key from lets say XP to use on Windows 7! if you have W7 you should have its own key in the paperwork..

Yep, but at some stage it will probably ask you for the qualifying XP key, which as you say is on the case.

You don't need to buy a key - one will come with Windows 7.
