Win7 oem kit

Hello,
How do I create a DVD containing the OS.
It is purely for repair purposes but sometimes it seems to be a neccessety in order to have the system up and running (recently experienced with a Vista-PC).
I bought the new PC with win 7 (64 bit) preinstalled and was unable to be unable to accheive the OEM DVD with the PC.
Best regards
Henrik

  1. if you valid license for win 7 then ask your copy from Microsoft, you may download it from msdn
  2. Do you mean that you contacted the manufacturer and they would send you a disk? seems odd
  3. they wont send a disk, but they can give a download form msdn library ....
  4. Another option is to use an imaging program to keep a stable operating system state. I use Acronis True Image, and I can basically mess my operating system up beyond repair and be safe in the knowledge that I can restore my PC back to a fully functioning state.
  5. Hello again,
    What is msdn and how do I contact them?
    I have a valid licence but wonder how decide which is the licens number and which is the product key.
    I suspect the number containing the letters OEM to be the licens number?
    And thanks a lot for your answers!

    P.S. I use Acronis but have found the windows disk to be very helpfull in some situations.

  7. Hello again,
    I forgot to end this in a proper and polite way....
    Sorry!
    I decided to save time and bought a DVD with the OS (OEM-version).
    And trust that it will be ablé to do a repair-job if neccessary.
    In my experience, it will one day...
    Best regards

    OEMs don't provide you with a "clean" OEM copy of Windows... they instead provide you with recovery discs or an option to create the discs yourself. You can usually order these discs from the OEM for a fee. (Depending on the OEM). These discs contain the factory default image that is on the hard drive when you pull the computer out of the box. They include the OS (obviously) and all software / drivers that were preinstalled.
  9. Well, I suppose thats rather like what I did and what I wanted: a disk to chose "repair" from...
    It usually works..
