    Hello

    I have an HP m9860 with Win 7 Home premium 64bit preinstalled.
    I want clean install without all HP programs.

    Can i use my existing license when using another WIN 7 DVD?

    For example:
    7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD

    Can i enter my key and get it activated as Home premium?
    Or do i need another DVD?

    I do not want any loaders and cracks.

    Best regards
    Thomas

    If you have retail key then yes if it was pre-installed OS then just enter key and cert with reinstall

    Or you could simply download the cert and the appropriate OEM key and install whatever version of 7 you want - and why wouldn't you install Ultimate ? I mean who doesn't choose the best when the costs are the same ?

    I think he believe's he has to clean install RTM to get rid of bloatwear. Other wise all ideas given are good methods regarding OP queries
