Re: Reinstalling Windows 7 on a Dell inspiron Laptop without the CD

Dell no longer includes installation media with their systems, unless it is specifically requested/selected at the time of order (usually a $3 charge).  This is not unique to Dell ... nearly ALL OEM's (HP, Acer, etc.) do this.

You can request a replacement disk here, if in the U.S., free of charge:

support.dell.com/.../backupcd_form

Or you can borrow a Windows 7 DVD from someone else that has a Dell Windows 7 DVD (although it MUST match the version of your license - Pro, Ultimate, Home, etc.).

Or you can use a Retail DVD (again that matches your licensed version), then activate using the Product Key on your computer over the phone.  You can download a copy of Retail media from Microsoft's online partner, Digital River, here:

Re: Reinstalling Windows 7 on a Dell inspiron Laptop without the CD

See my wiki A Clean Install of Windows 7, this will guide you through requesting a reinstallation dvd or use the digital river .isos. See Step 3 which discusses the merits and disadvantage of both ways. It will also give you instructions on how to install Windows 7.

RE: Reinstalling Windows 7 on a Dell inspiron Laptop without the CD

Follow my Windows Reinstallation Guide/A Clean Install of Windows 7:

http://philipyip.wordpress.com/dell-community-forums/

In the Inspiron 1545 the product key is found in the battery compartment. Dell put it there to protect it as Microsoft provided COAs which were of low quality and prone to fading.

You are best to use a Digital River .iso and the Activation Backup and Recovery Program as instructed in the Windows Reinstallation Guide. This will allow you to create a Windows installation USB and backup the Dell SLP key activation mechanism and reactivate your product without the need to call a Microsoft Product Activation centre. The guide explains the procedure in more detail.
