Ok so here's my question. where can i download an ISO of Windows 7? The Digital River site does not allow the downloading of Windows 7 anymore.
And my second question is, when i do in fact install Windows 7 onto the laptop, can i use the code on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop to activate Windows?
Thanks for the help in advance guys.
I've done that before and it took the key. The catch is the key is set to a certain type of windows. If it had win7 home premium on it to start with then the key will only activate a win7 home premium OS.
If you try to use it to active a different version of win7, it will squawk. It will let you know the key is not valid. It won't rat you out to MS, it just lets you know the key doesn't work.
Oh and another thing is to write the key down as it appears on the sticker just in case you need to reinstall the OS for some reason. The sticker gets worn even with normal use and gets to the point you can't read it. Then you're screwed.
