Hi guys, I just got a HP with W7 HP and its got a bunch of crap installed that i dont want so i'd like to do a clean install of W7 Ultimate. After reading the forums here, it looks like the best way to do it is this... -Backup the oem certificate using OEMdump. -Wipe the hard drive using a bootable cd of Active Killdisk. -Install W7 Ultimate w/SP1 with an iso linked on the forum. -Manually insert the OEM certificate i backed up. -Manually insert the HP Ultimate key from the forum. Does that sound right? Will i get an activated copy of W7 Ultimate that way? Did i miss anything? Any better ideas? Thanks, Billbob.
