Re: Reinstall Win 7 after HDD failure need activation key

Thanks - loads.

Worked brilliantly!

Great glad to help.

Note I am from the UK also and really unsatisfied with how difficult it is to obtain a Windows 7 Reinstallation DVD. The situation has got worse for Windows 8 because Microsoft have not provided a .iso if, you agree add your vote to the IdeaStorm here which suggests Dell should address the issue: http://www.ideastorm.com/idea2ReadIdea?Id=087700000008mnRAAQ&v=1369477976516 (unfortunately IdeaStorm has a separate login from the rest of the Dell Community but Dell are more likely to address issues on IdeaStorm which have a large number of votes).

Also this poll here http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/software-os/f/4677/p/19476992/20233076.aspx#20233076.
