    Question ... regarding Windows 7 reinstall and using coa key from laptop

    Basically i have a laptop with windows 7 and with all this garbage preinstalled its kinda slow.

    Question if i download a trial windows 7 home premium disk and reinstall windows, can i use the key beneath the laptop? or will that only work wiht the discs that come with my laptop?

    thanks

    would back up the oem key and cer or you will need a windows 7 disk that came from your oem provider that has the correct cer for your bios . HERE
    The key on the bottom does nothing really as oem is activated by slic 2.1 and cer

    There are a few tools to reinsert you cer/oemkey to the iso PhearFactor linked you too on mydigitallife
