Just one more.

I would download a Windows 7 Home Premium from this site:

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

But there's now Danish version here.

How can I obtain a Danish version ?

For the Recovery disks which include all the preinstalled factory bloatware, you'd need to contact eMachines Tech Support which is included for free for the first year. You can also compare their price on replacement HD with what you find on the web.

You did send at the same time as I did. Very fine :-)

Download the Danish Professional version that is listed. If it's not your licensed version then download and run the eicfg removal tool to unlock all versions before burning to DVD or writing to flash stick, select your licensed version during install.

Thanks so much :-) ... or just delete ei.cfg :-)

Depends on if you want to extract the files to delete and then recompile the ISO, or run the tool on the ISO file itself which is much easier.

Hi again.

If I purchase a new HDD, and then I install W7HP on it, can I use the serial number again without problems ?. From Microsoft ?

Yes, the key/serial will work. That's pretty much standard, as long you have a valid key. I'm pretty sure Greg wouldn't steer you that way if he knew otherwise (he'd tell you if that was the case).
