Windows 7: Clean Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64 Install

04 Nov 2015   #1

Clean Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64 Install


I have a new machine that I bought from HP last April. I want to upgrade to an SSD and have a question

regarding the installation media. I downloaded the Windows 7 file from Digital River before Microsoft pulled

it. The file has been unlocked with the 'ei.cfg' utility so that I can see all 4 Windows 7 program file versions.

Windows 7 Pro SP1 is #3 on the table. My question is, can I install using the disc I created and activate the

installation with the license key on the side of the machine's case?

I have had some File System and Registry issues, but am fairly certain we have them ironed out. There are

certain Windows Updates we have uninstalled as they have been proven to be detrimental to the system.

I have contemplated migrating from the HDD to the SSD, but if I can do a clean install from the disc I made,

we rather do that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated- Thank you!
