Reinstalling Windows 7 without CD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everyone,

    I am in China right now and my Laptop is more or less dead. Therefore I need to format it.

    However, intellegent as I am I did not bring the Windows disk along and now I am wondering what I am supposed to do.

    Since I know my CD-Key I was wondering if there is any chance of downloading the Windows 7 version?

    Morover, I was wondering if I need to install Windows Vista at first again, since I upgraded Vista to 7.

    And of course I did not bring the Vista disk either...

    Hope there is any chance of not buying a new Windows version, it's rather hard to find an english version around here.

    Best regards

  • It appears you are out-of-luck since you do not have the original Windows Vista instasllation disc nor the Windows 7 Upgrade disc.  Unfortunately, nothing we can do about that.  If you wish, you can download and install the fully functional  Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial.
