    Hi all, I tried reading the stickies here but they are confusing me a bit.

    I have a Lenovo PC that was pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. I'd like to format it without all the bloatware that it came installed with. I don't have the original recovery disks. I have a license key for this version of Windows underneath my laptop.

    Is there a way for me to re-install Windows 7 HP using the ISOs posted here? What exactly are the steps for me to re-install Windows 7 HP using my license key? Do I still need to use Daz's Loader if I have an authorized key?

    Thanks, vymrdal. Could you point me to the ISO I need to download and install that will work with my key? And do I just enter the key underneath my laptop during the installation process or do I need to bother with Daz's loader at all?

    Got it. But just so I'm absolutely clear, can I use the ISO located in this thread?

    forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126-The-Official-Windows-7-Repository (torrent file torrents.thepiratebay.org/5021075/7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCU.5021075.TPB.torrent)

    Or do I need an Home Premium specific ISO? Or does the Loader fix all that for me in the end anyway with the Ultimate ISO?

    Everything worked perfectly! Thanks so much for the help. Didn't even need to boot the loader up - all I did was manually enter my key in My Computer and it activated without any problems. Thanks again.
