    Hi All.

    I'm rebuilding my lenovo x220 where I removed the recovery partition.
    What is the best way to reinstall Windows 7 Home Basic on it and be able to genuinely activate it?

    My Idea was this, but I'm not sure it'll work.

    1)to download Windows 7 Home Premium x32 (not sure where to get it from these days)
    2) use binpatcher to switch it to Hame basic?
    3) then what?

    thanks in advance.

    Download W7 whatever the version it is (except enterprise). Open the ISO with ultaiso or something else and deleted ei.cfg file. All versions willl be visible, then do a proper installation and use Daz loader, if the laptop was delivered with W7 then it's an OEM version and all should be good. :)
