Summary: although it may work, as a newbie I did not realize the intensity of the warning about not using this product except for first builds, and the demand, apparently not usually respected about using it only with a Windows proprietary install program.
Summary: I bought this in anticipation of upgrading my Win-XP computer (although I love XP, obviously without upgrades to it, I need to upgrade my OS). I haven't installed it yet so I can't really evaluate it; however, the order did arrive in good condition and quickly.
