it came with disks didn't it? boot from your CD drive with them in it and go through the windows install. start with your copy of vista and then run the 7 upgrade.

It's always a good rule of thumb with a new system to do a fresh install of the OS. In your case it's a little more complex due to having to install vista and then upgrade it to windows 7. As hard as it is to start over and reinstall everything it's good to refresh things again.

He doesn't need to do that at all. There are ways around it. Unless we aren't allowed to talk about that on OCN?

In this thread is copies of windows 7 with SP1. Choose your version and maybe your original serial will work with your version. http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-guide-optimization-for-ssds-hdds

His serial is for an upgrade copy. So if he downloads the upgrade version yes it will work. For the upgrade disc you "technically" need a previous OS, which there are ways around, but I am not posting it unless it is not against the ToS
