I have a netbook which came with Windows 7 preinstalled and a recovery partition. I would like to put a SSD in the netbook (and reinstall Windows). The idea is to create a bootable USB stick and install Windows 7 from that instead of the recovery partition (since the SSD doesn't have the recovery partition, obviously).
The problem is that I have no Windows 7 ISO to start with (the recovery partition doesn't seem to be a normal Windows 7 installation image). If I were to download a Windows 7 ISO from... somewhere, will I be able to use my original Windows 7 license key to install it (assuming I download the same edition that I have licensed)?
