Nah- it was 2a.m. when I went to bed, though.

Accent? - it's you foreigners that have accents! :)
Oh no fun! Haha you foreigners huh?! I can't wait to visit Scotland then!

OK.



Yes, I recommend a fresh install and this tutorial, despite the misleading title, covers all cases of Win 7 install.

She will need to buy Win 7, since she has no records or other info giving a vista or Win 7 product key for her machine.

Time for her to consult her mate and ask him his desires.

So I do a fresh install and buy a new windows 7 for the new key.. But the hp chick said even if I buy a new windows since the BIOS was wiped out it wouldn't have "anything to hold on to"??

She is wrong!

If you have any records to indicate that you once had a valid version on there, then all you need to do is buy the upgrade version, which incidentally is every bit as full as the "full" version.

We have a tutorial on how to do this, giving three different approaches.
