I just had to use the restore DVDs to restore my dads pc. Then I had to remove all the crapware that comes bundled.
Will an OEM key work on a Non-OEM disc? His machine has the standard sticker with the key on it. I have a non-OEM disc. I figure next time a clean install would be faster since I wont need to remove the crapware,
Of course, afterwards I would image the drive to make my own restore disc.
