(Refiles to add dropped word in headline)

Nov 29 (Reuters) - Dell Technologies Inc posted a 15 percent rise in quarterly revenue on Thursday, helped by businesses upgrading their systems ahead of Microsoft pulling the plug on Windows 7 support.

However, net loss attributable to Dell Technologies widened to $876 million in the third quarter ended Nov. 2, from $846 million a year earlier.

Loss per share remained unchanged at $1.84 per share.

Revenue rose to $22.48 billion from $19.56 billion.

Dell is buying back shares tied to its interest in software maker VMware, looking to return to the stock market without a traditional initial public offering.
