Windows 7: Re-installing Windowss 7 on Samsung laptop without recovery partition

Re-installing Windowss 7 on Samsung laptop without recovery partition

I have a Samsung Samsung Series 9 np900x3c laptop which currently has a completely blank SSD (i.e. the recover partition no longer exists) and didn't come with OS on any other media. The laptop came with Windows 7 and the power supply has the Microsoft product activation key on it which is labelled WINDOWS 7 HOME PREM OA FOR SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS. What Windows 7 ISO do I need to use in order for that key to be accepted. I've just tried the Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (64bit) SP1 ISO (with
MD5 Checksum: da319b5826162829c436306bebea7f0f) but the key wasn't accepted.


Thanks in advance...

Skip the key while installing ( which gives you a 30 day grace period) then try 7oeminstaller

Is that an official M$ ISO?

I wouldn't recommend using it!

I know it is available using the Win ISO downloader from HeiDoc.net. It includes SP1, IE11, updates upto August 2018, superseded updates and Telemetry. It also apparantly only has one re-arm remaining. You would also need to install the updates from August 2018.

Paul, the link is from "https://download.microsoft.com/download so I believe it's from M$.
Regarding Telemetry, yes it probably has it. But you can always uninstall them.
But most important, most people don't care if they are tracked and the big majority will leave the WU on it's default (auto update) that will install Telemetry anyway.
To uninstall the Telemetry, rename KB_Spy.cmd.txt to KB_Spy.cmd and run the batch file.

[1] True!
[2] People who are not conversant with batch files and how they work will probably not want to use third party alternatives to achieve their aim!

My friend's late husband was a retired techie. He maintained all the household machines, a total of 11 in 2 homes. I thought maybe some of his priorities had rubbed off on her. I asked if she cares that Chrome is a huge piece of spyware, recording every page she looks at, and selling her eyes to advertisers. She said no.
