You should have no prob using that disk just to format your hd, but what are you using for your os ?

Reg, if you have a valid and legal windows license key on "your" pc (and not being used on any other PC), you can download a digital copy of the corresponding version of Windows 7 from My Digital Life.

Well its been a while since we got that pc... and if i recall correctly then our computer "nerd" friend that build the system, installed windows but didnt register and applied a crack of some sort. So if i format the drive using my Windows 7 HomePremium disk do i then have to register windows again, or do i have to get another windows 7 disk, or simply reaply a crack (yup i know that's not legal :unsure: )

Reg - as Spike pointed out we do not discuss or condone "cracking" or any other illegal activity.  How you go about getting a legit copy of Windows installed is up to you.
