    Need a new Win7 Disc, no key

    Hello.

    So I want to reformat one of my other comps, this one was custom made so I don't think there is a Factory restore option, and I do not have the windows 7 Disc, however when I look up online for the standalone disc and no CD key, I can't find it (Or I just don't know what to search for)

    Primarily what I am asking is, is there such thing as just a Windows 7 disc simply for installation purposes? Downloadable or purchaseable online or stores like say, Best Buy or Frys carries? Really don't wanna spend the 100$ for the CD and Key, considering I just need the CD is all

    So wait... Do you have your old CD key?

    If so, you just need an iso file, official ones can be found here: http://en.community.dell.com/support...tal-river.aspx

    Just find your version (e.g. Home Premium 64-bit) and download it. Then you can either use an iso burner to put the file on a CD or this tool to put it on a flash drive.

    Not really sure if this is what you were looking for but it might help.

    This is the only way I've been able to find to install windows without a CD/DVD.

    And I see that someone beat me to it lol.

    To reiterate, since you just need the disc, you can download the .ISO (completely legit! And this is completely fine and legal, and Microsoft approved), this is here.
