Windows 7 Pro Format Questions

Hello
I have been having a lot of blue screen issues with my desktop over the past couple of days and it's to the point where I want to do a format.
I'm somewhat familiar with doing a format as I had done it a couple of times with my older desktop running XP.

My first issue with attempting to do the format on my current desktop is that I don't have the Windows 7 Professional OS Disc.
For whatever reason, the business where I bought the computer didn't include the disc.
It's a legitimate business where I bought the computer and I do have the product key for the OS.
They told me I could go online and burn the OS to a disc(s) myself.

I didn't do that but what I'm thinking of doing is do the Create a System Image thing.
My question about using that method is:
If my computer has a virus, will that virus be included with the system image?

If it isn't , then I'll have a couple of more follow up questions if anyone is interested in giving advice.

Hi View,
Creating an image of a problem OS is pointless, you'll be where you are now! blue screening!! and yes if you are infected that will be carried over as well.

Now for some better news
run this tool, copy/paste the results
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=52012

It should show your system with either a System builder or Retail licence type
Note the business SHOULD have provided you with the discs

If it comes back as legit i can provide a link for W7 SP1 download.

Hello Roy
Call me paranoid but before I share that information, is there anything in that information that someone can use that I don't want them to?

I think I may have found the link to the W7 SP1.
Is this it?

If you are you questioning the legitimacy of the OS I was sold, I'm pretty sure it's good. The business I deal with has been in business for the past 15 years and apparently it wasn't uncommon for the Window 7 OS disc's not being included with the computer purchase.
Not just at this business but from other business's as well.
I don't agree with that but apparently that's what happened.

He breaking the terms of the EULA then, and your system could be classified as non-genuine.
This is done to STOP multiple usage of the same product key.
(MS count the number of times a key is used, and once the limit is reached they are ALL blocked)

So when you download the ISO and HAVE to input the product key during the install its possible that it will be rejected.

Still no reason not to post the results

note as its validated using the SLP channel (guess the rest)

OK, now I understand.
But, I do have another question before I post the results and just to make sure we are on the same page.
Why are you wanting to give me a link to W7 SP1 when I already have that installed?

I said i would post the link once i was happy it was legit, AND that the PARTIAL product key would have been accepted on install.
Having W7 installed does NOT mean its genuine, and i have to abide by forum rules in regard to piracy issues.
