OK, so I got this k00L, brand new Lenovo 12.5 in screen laptop with Win 7 Pro 64bit, i5 Quad 4 2.6gig, 6 gig DDR3 Ram... nice little portable machine.
But, I hate the crap that's on it that Lenovo put on there. It didn't come with just Windows, it has numerous manufacturer programs that I don't want on there.
So, I called Lenovo and gave them a song-n-dance about how I needed the Windows install discs in case I ever needed them (I got the guy to admit that a few years from now they will not support this thing anymore).
So, do you think the Windows install discs will install just Windows only being that these are the Lenovo install discs?
There are two other discs that are labeled "Recovery Media for Windows 7 Products", so I figured these are the ones that install all the Lenovo crap.
I just want straight Win 7 Pro 64 bit on there and then I'll build my software collection as I want.
So whaddya think... should I try using the Lenovo install discs, or plan of buying a retail version of Win 7 Pro 64 bit? (I'm buying a larger HD and will leave the OE drive unchanged so I can always put that back if needed.)
Also, I found a Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit "Promotional Disc" from 2009 (X15-60567-01)... could this be installed and run as normal?
Advice from resident experts would be appreciated as I've got just enough knowledge to screw some stuff up
but still have fun doing it!
