Windows 7: HDD swap in new laptop

Beginning with Vista, the retail installer can be used to reinstall factory OEM using the Product Key on COA sticker, although it requires a robocall to MS to sort the specific key from sticker batch.

Unlock all verisons by extracting the ISO from your friend's DVD using ImgBurn, then run the ei.cfg removal utility to unlock, burn all-versions DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify: Unlock any version eicfg removal tool.url

The installer is driver-complete with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing can be found on the Asus Support Downloads webpage for your model.

Install Programs slowly to gauge performance changes. Don't allow any programs besides AV and gadgets to write themselves into the msconfig>Startup list as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU.

When you have it set up as you like, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art CCleaner ("Run Cleaner" and registry tabs) then Auslogics Disk and REgistry defraggers monthly.

Then save a Win7 backup image so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or a replacement using DVD Repair console and stored image.
