  1. I don't think that you will ever be able to run Internet Explorer 11 nor the Trident 7 engine on Windows Vista. Internet Explorer 11 requires Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Internet Explorer 11 can also be installed on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
  2. Are there any older versions of Windows Live Essentials for Windows Vista and Windows XP as well? I still have a copy somewhere on my USB hard drive.
  3. Windows doesn't do any weird stuff to the BIOS at all. I went to the BIOS setup and disabled UEFI secure boot: http://www.technorms.com/45538/disable-enable-secure-boot-asus-motherboard-uefi-bios-utility When I installed Windows Vista, I had to select Other OS. When I used Legacy OPROM features on the devices installed, Windows 8 would no longer work and would BSOD and that when I installed the OS that I'm still using today. Because the primary boot hard drive was GPT, I wound up deleting the partition and in Windows setup, recreated the partition as a MBR. It's possible to convert a MBR partition to GPT, but you have to have at least Windows Vista SP1 installed. Using a GPT partition is only truly necessary if you have a 2.5 TB hard disk or larger.
  4. Thank you for telling me. I would choose FQC-06913.
  5. Alrighty! We are in the process of getting the counterfeit item returned for a full refund and look to get Windows 8.1 Pro FPP (FQC-06913) as a replacement Christmas present. If I do, I will use the OS to replace Windows Vista and get it activated with Microsoft so, I won't have to deal with anymore major issues for a while. By the way, what are the differences between the SKUs FQC-06913 and FQC-06914 when it comes to Windows 8.1 Pro?
  6. I'll see what I can find online. The copy of Windows 7 Ultimate that I still have was counterfeit and it was all a hit-and-miss situation where I would get scammed by one non-responsive eBay user. eBay takes counterfeit products very seriously.
  7. I see what I can find. It's still possible to find retail genuine copies of Windows 7 elsewhere. Right now, I need to get a hold of eBay and PayPal to get a refund of the counterfeit Windows 7 product soon.
  8. Well...in that case, I'm gonna eBay and PayPal regarding the counterfeit Windows 7 Ultimate product that I bought as a Christmas present and get my money back before the 45-day refund window expires on Thursday.
  9. Well, if I still want to look on eBay, I have to be really careful on what I can buy over there.
  10. I don't live in Sweden. That's why. I'm in the United States.
  11. Good for you! I'm probably one of the unlucky customers who fell for a counterfeit Windows 7 Ultimate FPP and I'm still waiting to get my money back.
  12. I think that I misread my comment, but thanks for pointing the link out.
  13. If I can't go for Windows 7, there is still a opportunity to get a Windows 8.1 retail licenses off of eBay or Amazon. Walmart can't sell Windows 7 anymore, because Microsoft terminated retail sales in late 2013.
  14. Wow! I can't believe that only eBay still has a handful of Windows 7 DVDs on sale, both retail and OEM.
  15. Thank you for the information. However, Windows 7 Pro OEM licenses cannot be legally replenished anymore and once the supply completely runs out, Windows 7 migrators are out of luck.
