How can I reinstall Windows 7 if I lost my installation DVD?
I've just purchased a new laptop and it comes with the whole recovery partition jobbie and allows you to create a recovery disk which is fine if you like all the pre-installed guff on the system.
Ideally I'd like to have the Windows disk so I can do a clean install.
As I own the Windows 7 license, do I have the right to a copy of the installation media from the OEM or Microsoft?
Even if it cost's a nominal amount I'd prefer that to living in recovery-partition land.
Additionally, if I used the ISO/Disk from an MSDN subscription but used my legit product key, would I be in breach of any EULA?
I downloaded the ISO from an MSDN subscription and this has worked fine (it was the non-VL SKU).
I'm going to give Microsoft a ring and try to obtain original media.
