Just a quick question..

Hello, after installing Windows 7 home premium (full); if i happened to run into an issue and had to reformat or restore factory default, would i lose windows 7 as my operating system? Furthermore, would i be able to reinstall it using my disc and serial? Thanks in advance.

Nathan :)

Yes, you can reinstall from that same disc and you can easily reactivate it over and over again.

Better yet, navigate into the backup app, and make a system image and then you can just this to put your machine back to the way that it is right now in just a matter of minutes without having to reinstall.

If you restore it to its original state, yes, you would need to reinstall it with your Home Premium disc and key...

How bout this. Don't put your serial number in, you will have 30 days (to 120 days) to try it out and make sure it is all working.
