If legitimate, your school tech support (as they had the posted link and are managing the program with MSDN) can help you with this. BTW, there are no "free" editions, someone paid for a license for you to use, even if it was the school as part of its relationship with Microsoft. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>I downloaded a windows 7 free edition from msdn for students now its asking for> Related ressources: ForumI have a MSDN Win 7 Key If I reformat can I still use it?
