Crucial M4 and Win 7 reinstall in my future.....I have a question though.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, looks like I'm going to get one of those 64GB M4's and do a Windows 7 re-install...question is, I don't have the actual install disc here at the house. Two friends and myself bought a 3 license family pack over a year ago, and I installed mine first, and the third person has the package buried in his closet somewhere. Can I use the product ID number located in "System" when I re-install, and just call up Microsoft and explain the deal?

BTW, I have a Windows 7 disc I can use from another 3 pack I've used for some other builds, but obviously I can't use those licenses.

I am a little confused with your post. Are you saying you do not have the product key that you used to install windows 7 the first time?

If so, just install Belarc Advisor and it will grab every key for every piece of software you have installed...this way you can have all the keys you need to reinstall with the other windows 7 disc.

I just used this on my work PC and it took about 5 minutes to run...It sits at around 50% for what feels like forever...but it works great.

Once the program is done running it will open up a new webpage and you will see tons of specs on your rig.

Scroll down until you find the software serial section.
