    I downloaded Win 7 ISO, because I thought I was supposed to download that instead of the other, to install on VirtualBox. With the ISO version I need a previous version of windows to upgrade from. Is there a way around this? I've read some things and tried it, but couldn't get it to work. Anyone know any secrets or am I out money? Thanks.

    Yeah, that's the site I tried. It didn't really work, and I really don't know what I'm doing. When the "enter product key" comes up, what do I do to not enter it?

    Hit next, continue without typing any numbers.

    That keeps the system consistently running then?

    No. That gives you a 30 day trial version. Then, you either need to hack the registry, as per the guide or install again over the trial install.
