Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Usually the manufacturer will not give you another recovery disc for free.
There are a few places you can buy them for about £15.
You could also download a copy of windows off a torrent file sharing site.
This is illegal... BUT..If you look at the base of your laptop and look at the windows COA sticker, this tells you what version of the OS you have..XP/Vista/7 and what version Home/Premium.
You could download the same version you had and just use your own Key.
I feel it is very bad that a windows disc or even a recovery disc is not given with a new laptop, but usually expects you to make one when you use it for the first time.
So I dont feel very bad about obtaining a copy of windows if i am going to use my own serial key that i have paid for with the new computer>
