certified product key, but no cd RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I bought my laptop 4 years ago and I installed windows with the certified product key. After some problems I brought it to a compshop, and there they erased everything and placed an illegal version of windows on it.

    So I have got a certified product key sticker at the back of my laptop, but I cant find my cd anymore. Can I just reinstall windows with a cd from someone else and then type in my product key, or how do I have to solve this?

    Greetz,

    Sarah
