I have a Toshiba laptop in which Win 7 Home Premium x64 came pre-installed. I messed up trying to remove the Toshiba bloatware, and now I'm planning to do a clean install of 7.
For this I backed up the Win 7 activation, but at this point I noticed that the product key which got backed up is different from the one on the sticker at the bottom of the laptop.
Also, there was no OS DVD with the laptop, so I downloaded a copy (retail) from Digital River.
After installing Win 7, I'm planning to restore the activation backup. So should I install using the key I found in the activation backup or the one on the sticker?
