Windows 7: can i install windows 7 again after upgrade Clean Installation

Unless you are using Recovery Disks that came with a factory installation, you ALWAYS have to insert your Product Key to activate Win7.

It sounds like you may have gotten an illegally cracked DVD which self-activates.

I would go back to the Computer store and ask for the Product Key which should have come with the DVD. If they will not give it to you, and you have purchase receipt, contact MS Customer Service to ask for assistance or contact your local authorities to report theft by fraud.

Can you use WIndows Media Player 12 or the best open-source player VLC which handles any codecs WMP can't?

Yes you can go back to Vista using the Product Key stickered to your computer. Do you have the Vista DVD or Recovery Disks?

You will get a cleaner installation using the Vista install DVD for your version - you can unlock all versions if you need to.

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

If you can still make your Recovery Disks, however, then you can use them to extract favorite apps like Works which might not be on the HP downloads webpage: https://www.sevenforums.com/installat...tml#post488270

Make sure your Product Key on sticker is readable first. If not audit it from HD using Belarc Advisor or Magical Jellybean.
