Anyway to reformat a prebuilt without the DVD or system restore?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if there is a simple solution other then calling Dell to reformat my desktop that came with Vista, but came with a free upgrade to Windows 7. Right now I can reformat to the Vista, but I dont have the DVD or anything for the Windows 7 anymore. I also don't know what I did with the Windows 7 key either...

If it helps, I have the DVD for Windows 7 OEM builder for home, premium and ultimate.

That's my Vista key. Dell sent me a upgrade to Windows 7 few months later



So my question, is it possible to use my OEM builder Win 7 home DVD with my Dell key? The OEM builder is a full version DVD while the Dell key is an upgrade key
