Using official backup windows 7 dvd
I had to re-install my windows 7 installation today. I have the original Microsoft Backup DVD & it worked fine. Then I got to the Product key part of the installation.
I still cant find my key, so I just pressed escape when I got to the part where you should type in your product key ( its around somewhere & I 'll find it or if necessary buy a new key ).
The installation then continued without any problem & has installed a couple of updates since, with the attendant re-boots. Its all running normally.
Should I expect to be asked to input the product key at any stage or am I not being asked because its an 'official' Microsoft backup DVD ?
