I need to reinstall Windows 7 home premium as I have been unable to restore it using the recovery platform as it says a driver is missing and it is asking for the disc. Sony have been unable to source a replacement disc for me and have advised me to try online with the part number they provided however it seems to have been discontinued! I tried downloading Win7 from Microsoft but the only product key I have is from sticker on the back of the laptop which Microsoft wouldn't accept and advised me to contact Sony, which I have already done to no avail! Do I need to now purchase Windows 7 Home Premium or can I download/install from anywhere else and will it work?
If you have a 64bit W7 system you will find an up hill task trying to get 354+ updates in i changed to a W7 32bit but of coarse it will only see 4MB of ram even if you have 6MB in
but I did not have a problem with the updates but took
me 5hrs to get all the updates in
