WARNING: The Windows Operating System (OS) licenses under this program are UPGRADE versions only. They do NOT provide a full Windows desktop OS for custom built or unlicensed computers. These upgrade licenses are strictly for systems with a qualifying underlying OS. For more information, please visit the Microsoft Qualified OS page. The purchase and use of any Windows Upgrade Licenses under this program without a legal, underlying OS will be in violation of the Microsoft License Agreement for UH.  

Windows on a Mac

In order to install the Windows OS on a Mac, you must purchase the Windows 8.1 Ent License w/SA with the use of Apple's Bootcamp or a 3rd party product (Parallels, VMware, etc.). Under this license, you have the option to install either the Windows Pro or Windows Enterprise version. SA must be renewed after the initial SA period in order to continue the use of the Windows OS on your Mac.

Software Assurance (SA):

SA is an additional "maintenance" fee, providing the covered computer with rights to any new versions released during the valid SA period. It also gives the user the option of installing the Windows Pro or Windows Enterprise on a Windows or Mac computer.

SA is valid between 25 to 36 months depending on when in the year this is purchased. Orders with SA processed from now until 11/1/2014 will be valid until: November 30, 2016. License holders will be contacted prior to the SA expiration date with the option to renew their SA for an additional 36 months or allow it to lapse.

Downgrade Option

Under this licensing program, you have the rights to use a prior version of a product that you are purchasing. This is called "Downgrade Rights." The Windows 8.1 license can be downgraded to Windows 7 if you prefer to use this version instead. However, ITS can not guarantee that the older OS can be installed on newly purchased computers (missing drivers, compatibility, etc.). No refunds are permitted once the order has been placed with Microsoft and opened/used DVD sets can not be returned.

EXAMPLE:
Item #1: Windows 8.1 Pro Upgrade License
(Downgrade to: Windows 7 Pro)
Item #2: Windows 7 Pro x64 DVD
When you are ready to move up to the newer version, you can automatically upgrade your license to the version that was originally purchased. However you may need to purchase the installation DVD in order to do the installation.
