A friend has a netbook and she likes my 5yr old Linux install on my laptop, because of speed and reliability of Linux.
Now if for some reason she changes her mind, we'd like to put Win7 back on the unit.
Can you back up Win7 onto a USB? Or how would you go about doing a fresh install back on the netbook?
I have a retail copy of Win7 (my copy) I'm assuming I could use that, but use the key that's on the box from the netbook itself?
Not sure how to go about this.
if the hard drive is big enough you can dual boot windows and linux--a newer linux version such as ubuntu will recognise windows is already installed and let you pick from either windows or 7 at startup--best of both worlds that way
