I have a Windows 7 starter key that came with my netbook (a Asus EEE PC 1001P). Due to a ID10T error, I managed to delete both Windows 7 and my recovery partition. Is there a place I can download Windows 7 starter, and then install and activate it? Or is my only option for Windows is to buy a new copy of Windows 7 Home or Professional?
Try one of these links, http://www.ghacks.net/2010/10/20/windows-7-direct-download-links/ and then use the ISO Edition Switcher to change the version you downloaded to starter so your key will work. If that does not work then you will most likely need to buy a new edition. I would recommend Newegg for the best price, unless your find a deal elsewhere.
