How can I reinstall Windows 7 if I lost my installation DVD?
I recently had a hard-drive failure and had to get it replaced. Unfortunately this was the hard-drive that had all my windows files as well as my system recovery files. I'm currently using a version of windows 32bit but i need to reinstall my 64bit version. I have the cd key that came with the laptop yet the only way I can find of getting the software back is through torrents and i'd like to get it legally. Is it illegal if I torrent windows 7 home premium and use my cd key, or should i contact microsoft and have them send my one?
