Hi,

 

 

Posted here as I presume I don't have enough (or recent enough) posts to qualify for the Offers & Wanted forum.

 

 

I'm helping a client with a home PC refresh (out-of-warranty HP Omni with Win7 Home Prem COA attached) but I don't have a Win7 Home Premium OEM DVD. The client has no reinstall media. PC drive (replaced once under warranty) also has no recovery partition. I have Pro & Business OS CDs and DVDs going back to NT4, but I so seldom touch the home user OS's that I haven't built up a library of those discs. Can anyone in or near Hamilton please help with a loan or gift of a suitable DVD? I'm not after license or COA, just media please - and I'd rather site an original DVD than download something of unknown origin.

 

 

Also quite happy to pay for P&P if someone further afield can help too.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Bruce

I'm fairly certain I have a Home Premium DVD still lying around at home. PM me if you're still keen.

E
dit - just realised you're after OEM - link won't work.

I may have an ISO floating around here somewhere that I could upload to dropbox - let me know.

Thanks again,

For future reference you can modify a small file on a Windows 7 DVD and it will become an installer disk for any version. (Starter, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate)
