Windows 7: Does reinstall win7 make poor Asus better?

Hello, thanx for input. Cant install Linux, because needed programs don't support Linux. Don't want to spend money on SSD, just get rid of all the junk and have a fresh Windows 7-only computer. Hope this would let the machine run a bit lighter.

The official Windows download- site don't accept the Product Key from the backside of computer (says its "only" factory installed version of Win7, which is correct, but its still a genuine copy of Windows...).

Is the first link (heidoc.net) the same stuff, or would my product key be valid with the Download Tool/ ISO downloader found there?

No key needed for Heidoc download. You will need a key to activate the installation - unless you have already backed it up using dism++.

Ok!
With "a Key"- do you refer to the Key I used when trying to download from windows official site? Will that not get me the same problem (i.e. "Product Key not valid due to factory preinstalled Windows") ?

What do you mean with "...backed it up" ? Is it the actual Product Key I can back up before reinstalling, if so, does that give me a better chance to activate the installation, compared to the Key on the backside- sticker?

Thanx again.

If you have a key from the COA sticker - it can be used to activate. Some of them are batch keys and need phone activation.

That is why you are better using dism++ . There is a reason we suggest things. We are not just doing it because we enjoy typing. This is the third time I have suggested it to you.

Then use dism++ to backup the activation. Then copy the entire dism++ folder ( including the ActiveBackup ) to the usb stick.
I attached dism++ to that post.

Click Toolkit in the left pane of dism++.
