A few months back I had this problem about my restore point getting auto deleted after reboot (I still have this problem), now due to necessity I need to make a clean install of my OS but the thing is that there was no Windows installation disk given when I bought my laptop last year. Currently I am downloading a Windows 7 Home Premium x86 English ISO
. (Im downloading from this site: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO Image Downloads
), is this Okay? Anybody have a better suggestion where to get a copy of Windows?
here are my main concerns:
1. Will this ISO work if I use my original serial key written at the bottom of my laptop?
2. Is there an option to reformat my HDD before proceeding with the installation?
3. What will happen to the dedicated 15GB recovery partition when I reformat my HDD?
4. If the 15GB recovery partition ever gets disturbed when reformatting can I make a new recovery partition and enable samsung recovery solution?
This 15GB recovery partition along with SAMSUNG RECOVERY SOLUTION 4 has been a great help to me, but sadly it didn't fix the restore point problem that I have, so Clean Install would be the only choice I have left. So if given that everything went well with clean install and all, I would like to have a 15GB recovery partition that would run with SAMSUNG RECOVERY SOLUTION 4 (which is the software version that came with my laptop). Is this possible? Please help.
