I have a Dell XPS desktop and my hard drive crashed recently.
I went out a purchased a new hard drive and installed it, But I have a problem...
I bought the computer from my brother a few months ago, and being the idiot he is, he removed all the stickers on the computer ( including the CD key )
I have acquired a Dell Windows 7 Ultimate recovery disk, and I was wondering if this will install the OS on my computer without requiring me to input a CD Key ( will it recognize that my PC is in fact a Dell PC and not require CD key input?). Also keep in mind that I am not positive that the original OS was Ultimate, it may have been pro or home.
If anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated.
