Windows 7 on Netbook

Would I be right in thinking I could download Windows 7 from a torrent or somewhere and reinstall it on there to do a clean install, as I have the License Key?

Cheers

as long as your licence key is not for an oem version
#2
Has your netbook not got an option to make recovery CD/DVDs?
#3
Are you saying that the netbook has a windows 7 key or that you have a seperate key,

Putting windows 7 onto a netbook will make it run like a dying dog, netbooks tend to have 1GB RAM inside them and windows 7 will take most of that around 700MB which is why when you buy a new netbook you get windows 7 started, which still runs like a dog, but with a wee bit more life in it, dont ruin your net book.

Either that or upgrade the RAM and make your netbook a powerful beast and download windows 7 and get a product key, there was a site for product keys that could steal liscences for you cant remember the name though sorry :(

You can download it direct from Microsoft so no idea why you'd get it from torrents.

windows 7 runs as good as xp on a laptop with 1gb RAM. Use a memory stick though for ready boost ;) oh and disable aero.
