I am trying to install windows 7 home premium on a Toshiba l655-s5146. I replaced the hard drive and am having trouble activating windows on the new hard drive install because a few characters on the COA sticker are too faint to read. If I wipe the hard drive and install windows using the Toshiba Restore iso here http:// will windows recognize the OEM SLP activation key on the motherboard and activate automatically without the need for me to enter a product key? Thanks.

Yes, OEM recovery setups already have the activation enabled.
