Windows 7: Install Windows 7 RTM with Windows 7 OEM key

Install Windows 7 RTM with Windows 7 OEM key

I plan on buying an Acer Aspire One netbook that comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed. I saw that there is some Acer crapware built into it, such as the Login/Lockscreen background having an Acer image instead of the Windows 7 login screen background.

So I was wondering if I could re-install Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit by downloading the generic Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit iso from Digital River, and use the product key that my Netbook came with to activate it?

That way I would have a clean Windows 7 install, and not the modified Acer Windows 7 install.

Thanks in advance!
