    Will Windows 7 be available for download with the coupon we have, along with the CD MS is sending to us? I've read somewhere that we will but not sure. Anyone has any ideas?

    Very much doubt it. MS never do that unless you have an MSDN account

    Register for what exactly? If you ordered your notebook after 6/30/09, you should have received a Windows 7 upgrade coupon.

    i ordered july 10, received july 20. never got the coupon. i called alienware, they told me it was dell handling the problem. dell told me it would get mailed within the week, never happened. I kept emailing them and i finally got a response back 4 weeks later saying i have to register my service tag online for the upgrade..

    heres what the email said:

    Dell Rep... "I was able to make your service tag ******* eligible for windows 7 upgrade. Please try to register your system online."

    what the hell is that? this is ridiculous.

    I was just trying to order my upgrade and I got a BSoD (not quite sure why, it's been happening though) and now when I try to order again I get a message - "The Microsoft Offer Form Code you have entered is currently blocked. Please try again later."

    Anyone else had this happen? Will my code be un-"blocked" soon or what? I hadn't even gotten to any shipping information or anything I had just entered the code and confirmed my OS/language and now I can't complete my order...
