recover dvd RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just got a new laptop.It came with a recover dvd but the problem is when you use it the disk partitioning suck on it plus all the things that get install that takes 2 day to uninstall. Anyway is there anyway to get a plain install disk?

  • Your OEM license for Windows only permits you to use the computer manufacturer's recovery DVD.  If you want a conventional Windows installation DVD, then you'll have to purchase a new Windows license.

  • Visit your favorite store that sells computer software and purchase a conventional version of Microsoft Windows.
