Hello, I bought a laptop in November of last year and it came with windows 7. I have since lost the disk, but my laptop is perfectly fine. However, I'm worried about the day when I need to wipe my laptop and start anew with it. Is there a way for me to create an install disk for Windows 7 using the software already installed on my laptop? Is this legal to do? If it isn't, then my apologies for creating a post on these forums.
I have the same problem he does and I have already downloaded the .ISO file and burned it on a DVD and booted it up on my computer ...its booting and it says "windows is loading files" and then the windows 7 logo appears and its "loading" but then after that goes to a blank screen with the cursor the only thing working....I am unfamiliar with using ISO files and not surely if improperly used it...do i need to extract the files first and then burn on to a DVD or did i do something else wrong?
