Windows 7: No login prompt when booting Win7

Hi Leo48,

Just to add to Megahertz07 suggestions, if you have any purchased software, make sure you have the license keys for them, or get them from the software itself!

You will need your Product Key for the version of Windows that you are re-installing. This is the ONLY version that you will be able to activate. On a laptop, it will either be on a sticker on the bottom, or in the battery compartment. If the sticker is too worn to read, or there isn't one, then you can retrieve it by either using Belarc Advisor or Magic Jelly Bean. Write this Product Key down and keep it in a safe place.

I hope this helps!
