I bought new Acer notebook. It comes with Windows 7 HP 64bit OEM. But I would like to fresh install it, and make dualboot with Ubuntu.
So, first, if I reinstalled Windows for another legal version, will it destroy warranty? If I had for example a different OS installed, do I still have warranty on whole notebook?
And second, is there a way to reinstall OEM Windows? Like downloading same copy and use OEM CD-Key on it?
Because, let's say my OS gets damaged somehow, and I can reinstall it myself, but I dont wan't to lose waranty or OEM license, and wait month to get notebook fixed by RMA. Is there a legal way to do it? Thanks.
