Hey, I recently bought a new HP laptop and as many of you know, HP is horrible when it comes to preinstalled bloatware so I'd like to wipe everything clean and install a fresh copy of windows 7 home premium. So the question is, is it possible to use the key that's on the side of my laptop to activate a retail copy of windows 7 home premium that I got off the net? From what I've heard, it is, but I'll have to call Microsoft? Does anyone have any experience with that? Thanks & happy holidays guys.
