Reinstall windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Hi All,

I am having a Sony Vaio laptop which came with windows 7 home premium 64 bit pre-installed.

At present I need to format my c: drive,and do a fresh install for Windows 7 same version.

But the problem is I am not having the DVD to install windows 7.

Also am not able to create to system repair disc,the only thing which I have at present is windows backup.

Please help in re-installing windows7.

Many Thnks.

To fresh install, you need to get hold of a Windows 7 install dvd, either borrow or download from the internet (Google is your friend). To activate, use the sticker key.

But do make a set of recovery disks before clean instaling windows. There should be an inbuilt tool in the computer for that.

Thanks a lot guys..................I am having Sony Vaio VPCEB36FG.

In this am having the option of creating a recovery disc with only the factory settings.

I guess that would be enough.

or do I still need to have a windows DVD.

thnks.............

Create a recovery disc as soon as possible so you've got a route back to factory settings should you need it.

Once you've done that you've got other options.

If, like many others, you find the computer manufacturer's bloatware tiresome, you can always use a Windows DVD for a clean install using the product key sticker on your case. You would need to download the drivers for your system first and back them up for when needed.

You can also create a full system image for recovery purposes.

Hello SVCHOST, welcome to Seven Forums!

Here's additional information to go along with this post above and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.


After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media.

Find an exact Windows version that the PC shipped with, you can do a clean install using the activation key on the COA sticker attached to the PC though it may require a robo-call to MS to sort the OEM batch-key.

If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above.

After you have made backups of everything you care to save, the best method is to do a complete wipe secure erase of the entire Hard Disk Drive first, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old drivers/programs, giving you the best possible space to install Windows to.

Did you say you have a Windows 7 backup image? If so, you can reimage your HD from the image using the booted Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD. System Image Recovery

Otherwise find the Windows 7 installer to clean reinstall using Product Key on COA sticker following these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
