Please excuse my laziness in posting a question that most likely has been answered before, but I am exhausted from searching and reading conflicting, poorly explained articles and wanted to get a straight answer from the place where the best answers come from...forums..
I have two questions and will do my best to keep them short and concise. First, I purchased an OEM copy of windows 7 to put on a new build and everything is working great. My confusion is if down the line I need to rebuild that system that requires a new install of the OS. Can I reuse the Key for that rebuild?
Secondly, I have a laptop that is running Vista that I can't stand dealing with anymore and want to install Win 7. I want to do a clean install and don't know if I should purchase another OEM copy -better price then retail and I don't care about tech support- or go for the upgrade. I assume ether way I go the both come with the 32- or 64-bit version, I have not decided which I want to install. I should mention that I do not have any Vista disks, none came with the laptop when I bought it.
