The notebook came with a hardware recover DVD. Booting this DVD brings the harddisk to the factory state. That is, it erases all data and installs Windows 7.
But, I need to install Windows 7 into a particular partition, leaving the rest of the harddisk untouched. Obviously I can't do that with the hardware recover DVD provided.
However, since I have a valid Windows 7 Prem Home OA license I was wondering if Microsoft provides installation medium for download. Does Microsoft provide Windows 7 installation medium for download?
If they don't, what options are there to install Windows 7 into a separate partition?
