My System Specs

Default For those of use that are supposed to get the free upgrade

Hey guys, here's a noobish question
I bought my computer from NCIX that came with Vista, and I'm supposed to get an upgrade to Windows 7.

Problem is I have no idea where to get this. I called NCIX and they said the Microsoft website, but I go there and I don't really see information that helps me out with this.

Some help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

if it's a OEM Vista you have to deal with NCIX, if it's a retail box purchase after June 26 you look here
Windows: Windows 7 Upgrade Option



here a quote from Microsoft, so iI guess NCIX do not associate the cost to it.. :


`
I bought a new PC with Windows Vista Home Premium in July 2009. Why don't I qualify for the Windows 7 Upgrade Option offer?


Participation in the Windows 7 Upgrade Option is decided by the PC manufacturers. There are costs associated with implementing the offers so they may opt out of the program for certain models, particular timeframes, or in specific markets. We encourage customers to work with their PC manufacturers to better understand availability.

I think the NCIX forums would be a better place to post this than here. There staff members regularly frequent the forums. Oh and next time you have to spell it "for those of yous" not "for those of use" lol

Technically, it should be "for those of you". Unless, of course, you're a 'Goodfella'.
