Microsoft Windos Seven may be the most awaited Operating System since we waited for Windows XP.Windows Vista didn't work well and people wanted a new Operating System, so Microsoft started working hard and released this Windows Seven, which has been very well received by users from all over the world.The true is that it works pretty well, it doesn't crack as usually as Windows Vista and the interface is beautiful.Windows Seven is light, safe and easy to use.
It starts quickly, really faster than Windows Vista and it closes fast too.Applications run very well on it and, in short, people is very happy with it, what has made Microsoft Operating System to receive good reviews again.The graphic appart of the desktop features Aero, one of the good thinigs brought by Vista.
Windows Seven is, with no doubt, the best Operating System by Microsoft. Your PC maker has provided a means of reinstalling the entire system [possibly using a repair partition] so try this first as it's the easiest way to do it. You will lose all user files & all installed applications and it may also remove all disk partitions. Using your existing Product Key you could create, then reinstall using, a Windows 7 Installation DVD/USB and I suggest a USB [see 1.4 below - you need to manually edit the DVD/USB that's created so a USB seems easiest but a rewriteable DVD would do it but I've heard that rewriteable DVDs are not as reliable as USBs in the long-term].

[* XP requires additional components- see para 1.1 below]. - 2Blank rewriteable DVD [see 1.4 below - you need to manually edit the DVD that's created]. - 1 This recovery method will result in the loss of all user files & all installed applications and it may also remove all disk partitions.

- 1Windows Help. 1To make an installation DVD or USB [I suggest using a USB stick as you'll have to do a manual edit to the Installation Disk so a USB is easiest - see 1.4 below]:. 1.1Download the correct ISO file for 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium [see paras 1.2 & 1.4 below] fromOfficial Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital Riverand the Windows 7 USB-DVD download toolThe download tool can run on Windows 7, Vista & XP SP2 but XP users need additional components that are listed, & linked to, on the download page.
1.3 On another PC, using an admin-level account, install the USB-DVD Download Tool then run it with the ISO file stored anywhere on the system [except the target DVD / USB drive, I discovered, although others say that it can be on the target drive].The result is a Windows 7 SP1 installation DVD / USB.
The USB-DVD Download Tool can then be ignored or it can be uninstalled. 1.4 Because you have a Product Key for the Home Basic version, you need to do a manual modification of the Installation Disk to make it into a multi-version installer [for Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate].
This is not an illicit procedure; you will use your existing Product Key and you will choose Windows 7 Home Basic during the installation procedure [your Product Key will only work for that version]. I have done that procedure on my Installation USB and it seems reliable. On the Installation USB [or rewriteable DVD], go to the "sources" folder and delete the file ei.cfg - that is all you need to do and you now have a Multi-version Windows 7 Installation USB.
2To install Windows 7:.
- 2.1Insert the Windows installation disk, (re)start the system.As soon as the PC maker’s logo appears, set the system to boot from the DVD / USB drive as appropriate by pressing repeatedly on the Boot options key or the BIOS key identified onscreen at this point [or identified in the PC manual].
- 2.2After several minutes [that can include periods with a blank screen & no apparent activity], wait during the “Starting Windows” screen then, at the first Install Windows dialog, select the language the time-currency format & the keyboard.Then click Next.
- 2.3At the next Install Windows dialog, select Install now. 2.4Onscreen instructions will then guide you through the installation procedure.There is more detailed guidance at Installing and reinstalling Windows 7.
- 2.5At the end of the reinstallation, you may or may not have to activate Windows 7.If you are reinstalling the version preinstalled by the PC maker then they might have provided for a self-activation process that you will not even notice.If you have any doubts then you can go to Genuine Microsoft Software Validation afterwards to validate the activation / self-activation if you wish.
