For a Repair Installation (not a clean install) you can use another's DVD and you can also copy
it. Just use your own Product Code. Also the System Maker will sell the OEM DVD you need to
test and install (repair or clean installation) cheap since you already own Windows 7. If you
borrow a friend's DVD to copy make sure it is the same 32 or 64 bit. Any Windows 7 version
from Home Basic to Unltimate will work as the Product Code determines which version is used.

Check with the System Maker for their recovery options however those most often will revert
the system back to factory fresh and remove ALL programs and data.


Do you have a K or KN version of Windows 7? (Non US Versions)

What Are Windows 7 N And KN Editions

Start - type in Search box -> Winver    find at top and double click on


Start - type in Search box -> System Information   find at top and double click on.

If so, and only for those you can download in install WMP12 from here.

Hope this helps.
