    Is there a all/favor of win7 to install ?

    I'm trying to help a friend !!

    He bought a refurbished Dell with win 7 pro from Tiger Direct, it boot's to have the product key and the reburb label on the case that Tiger installed doesn't work -- called (no help) and they said to call a number that's still on hold.
    Also it had the org Dell MS label with the product ID and it didn't work either !!

    I was wondering if there's a ALL flavor's win 7 install iso that I can use to reinstall as it seem I/we have to send this PC back to Tiger.?

    No but you can still get an ISO of the flavor you need from digital river the last I checked.

    It looks like he'll end up having to purchase a product key.
    If I'm not mistaken, specific editions of Windows 7 will allow one to defer entering a product key until later.
    So your best bet, barring getting in touch with Tiger Direct for clarification, would be to download and burn
    the edition you want and activate later, after you've purchased your key.
