Hey guys. I did a search but couldn't fin exactly what I was looking for so hopefully someone can help me out. I just got a new Acer laptop and I wanted to do a clean install of W7 like it did on my last laptop (I love being bloatware free!). Problem is that this laptop didn't come with a Windows disc, or any disc for that matter as I guess all the recovery info is on a HD partition. So how do I get a clean install of W7?

Also, I just remembered, I do have a W7 disc from my old laptop. Would that work? What would I use for activation key if so?

Thanks
