Windows 7: i lost my window 7 cd

Layback Bear

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

1. How in the hello does one loose the c/d.
2. If the OP has a proper validation code just contact Microsoft; they can help.
3. Put you c/d in a proper case when not using; no scratches that way.
4. Is Microsoft testing this web site??
5. If you don't have a validation that Microsoft will honor I surly won't help!!

We help hundreds of users clean reinstall factory OEM in the Install forum without having to violate forum policy by posting up download links. SevenForums values keeping in good stead with MS and this is one limit they've chosen to respect.

Judging by how one MS exec at the Global MVP Summit in Seattle last week complained about SevenForums hosting a tutorial which shows how to extend activation up to 120 days, it becomes clear to me that these decisions are made here with careful consideration that balances legality with common sense. I showed the MS exec real world scenarios where the Extend tutorial helps keep users honest until they can afford a license. I also sensed possible envy that SevenForums gets more end-consumer traffic in an hour than Technet gets in a week - I go there to help last thing at night so I can fall asleep.

BTW here are the steps for getting a purrfect clean reinstall of factory OEM once you find an installer. In this we are firmly on MS side, as they can't even get manufacturers to abide by EULA requirements that they provide a clean-copy Installation DVD, hamstringing Win7 performance with enforced sponsored-bloatware lard.
