    Can a friend use my Dell Win 7 install DVD disk?

    Hi All,

    Need some help/advice, I have a friend who's PC got into virus hell and could not be saved by any means. He had Win 7 Home premium 64 bit but has no back-up and no install disk, he does of course a valid Microsoft license serial on sticker on his desktop & the dell hard drive has actually been replaced with a larger hard drive, old drive is destroyed. I have a Dell Re-installation DVD with win 7 ultimate 64 bit, can he use that with his serial to re-install, home premium somehow on his computer, not MY win 7 Ultimate 64 but his home premium 64?

    Thanks much for any help or direction, possibly to download a valid win 7 home premium 64 if you have a valid serial and my DVD won't work for him.

    I think it's better for your friend to download a Windows 7 DVD. He can do it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/window...-home-premium/

    Or here, for 7 with SP1:http://www.shaileshtripathi.in/2011/...ntegrated.html

    Either of these should be good with his Windows key, as long as he downloads the DVD with the version corresponding to his key.

    Hey Ruirib,

    Wow, that is excellent information, I really appreciate the info as I wasn't sure how we should proceed but with his valid license I was hopeful that he didn't have to buy an install DVD since he never got one with his system but paid for the software originally!

    Yes, it's great that these downloads are available and they are from Digital River, so they are risk free.

    Your friendds key should unlock the correct version of the downloaded iso file. The nice thing is these iso files include SP1. Once the file is downloaded just right click it and burn it to a DVD.
