You can contact Acer and see what they suggest as far as a software to recover your install I did that a while back and got one for it which it shows as a retail version

I also have a oem/ system builders 64 bit home premium disk that was about 100.us it activated just fine
Just don't buy it from EBay
Amazon wise it's best to buy products sold and
If with doubt refer to legitimate software companies in your area but first place should be the manufacture of the machine
This is sold and shipped by Amazon it just states a Clean install is necessary but you can ask Acer support too and verify,

Professional or Home Premium; take your pick;

I'd be careful about where I bought it.

Ebay: no

Amazon; ok if you buy from Amazon DIRECTLY rather than from someone selling on Amazon.

Newegg: ok

It's been a long time since I heard about anyone having problems with System Builder versions.

You MIGHT have a problem if at some time in the future you replace the motherboard in your PC.

I assume you have some type of laptop, so a change of motherboards isn't likely.

Hey there

That's fantastic, just what I was looking for..... It's a lappy so I'll be chucking it in the next 12 months or so anyway I'm sure when I upgrade for spec reasons etc.

I was thinking about this one: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64 English 1 Pack DSP OEI DVD LCP (PC): Amazon.co.uk: Software

OK never thought about contacting Acer tbh, but if no luck, (I'm in the UK) is my linked product OK?

Cheers.

Yes it is... OK, I've bookmarked it as a good option.... I'm going to have a good read of the reviews (I know, often a bad idea lol)

Thanks again for all your help

Yea they added the OEI stuff to it which isn't listed on any u.s. listing :/
First look at it seems fine
The builders support deal is just saying you are the supporter of the install not Acer......
So if you have issues come here and ask for support for drivers....... if you have issues finding them :)

Heck you can get a 8 or 8.1 install iso from here
Clean Install - Windows 8

Thanks for that... tbh, if I'm going back I would go back to 7 rather than 8.1, I can rollback to that easily enough with a click here, but would prefer a fresh install with 7 that will see me through for the next year or so.

Cheers.

Hi,
If that's the case then just buy another ssd or hdd to put the new win-7 install on
Then your present install of win-10 is unaffected

Switch back and forth it's an old fashion dual boot :)

I'm staying with WIN7 and not Win10
I installed Windows 10 on my travel touchscreen laptop because it has Windows 8.1. It works OK but my desktop will stay Windows 7 as long as I can. I feel Win7 is very stable and for most regular users it works well. How about you? Will you stay with Win7 and not upgrade?
