This is a very simple question. Just bought a ASUS laptop with 7 home premiun 64 bit on it. I do have a Windows 7 Pro installation disc that I have for my scratch built desktop. Can I use that disc to reinstall windows on the laptop if need be and just use the license # from the laptop and I assume microsoft will just turn off the added features of Pro??? or do I have to create that 4 dvd recovery disk?? Also if ya know this is a ASUS A53E that has a super multi DVD drive is that dual layer capable??Thanks for any help

NO this disk will not work with said key as its home premium!
Create the 4 recovery DVD's, better to have them and not need them.
Then I would find somebody with an standard OEM version of Premium x64 and do an install using your key, thus getting rid of all the crap OEM's preinstall, that slow down a PC.
