Windows on a Mac

SA is an additional "maintenance" fee, providing the licensed computer with rights to any new versions released during the valid SA period. It also provides the option of installing the Windows Pro or Windows Education 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 10/31/2017 will be valid until: November 30, 2019. License holders will be contacted prior to the SA expiration date with the option to renew their SA for an additional 36 months or terminate SA coverage.

Downgrading provides you with the right to use a prior version of a product that you are purchasing. For example, the Windows 10 license can be downgraded to Windows 7 or 8.1 if you prefer to use one of these versions instead. When you are ready to move up to the newer version, you can automatically upgrade your license to the version that was originally purchased. You can either purchase the installation DVD or request for the ISO file by loan USB or download.
