If I could pass on a donation I would :)

Thanks for the tutorial and download that made my windows reinstall possible. I just upgraded my MB and Processor and for whatever reason Windows wouldn't allow me to do a clean install. Thanks again and a lot. Cheers from the melting great white north.

If I have Windows 7 Home (FPP) and Ultimate (WAU) licenses, can I perform clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate and use WAU key ? Will it accept it ? Or I must use Home key and then Ultimate key ? How it works please ?

There is more than 50 pages in this thread. So I am sorry if someone else already asked this question. I appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance

Hi,
With the new iso OddBall offered you
You'd use the upgrade key with it using Option 4 and option 3's bat or reg file before activating windows.

Thank you for your answer. Sorry that I ask like this, but are these options fully legal ? I just don't want to violate any policies or something. I already know that image provided is safe and legal directly from microsoft. But what about that .bat file and registry ?
Thanks

Brink would have to ban himself if it was illegal

I used it on a laptop 2 years ago with a win-7 home premium from Vista
It works like a charm and to this day is still shown as activated and genuine

No worries John. It's perfectly safe and legal.

Using one of the four install options, could I install on a brand new pc build using the win 7 upgrade disk without having any older windows version/product key available?

UPGRADE version: Can you a do a 'clean' install
With VISTA, you could not install a fresh copy, you needed to upgrade your existing OS. (unlike XP, 2000, etc.) Did this change with 7? Can you do a clean install from an upgrade 7 DVD? Thanks!
