Clean Install Win7 from Asus Recovery DVD

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Is it possible to clean install Windows 7 from a
Asus Recovery DVD? I do not have a upgrade
or
retail disc, but I've installed Windows XP
before
from a recovery disc. Is it possible to clean
install from a Asus Recovery DVD?

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Sure, boot to the dvd and see if it boots and installs.

This is a different computer, so when I tried I got the error "PC
Chips is not from ASUS" or something like that (my motherboard
is PC Chips). Is there anyway to burn a different DVD, maybe, of
Windows 7?

You can only use the ASUS disks on their systems. If the system you are installing to is not an ASUS you will need to get a copy of Win 7 for it. They are coded to look for their motherboards. I do ASUS warranty and have used their recovery disks frequently.

How can you do an install to a system without having a disk and license key?

cisasteelersfan,

FYI ... an OEM branded Recovery Disc is not the same thing as an OEM branded OS Disc & as hinted above, not applicable for reloading any typical IBM-compatible machine. In most cases, it is not compatible across machines from competing OEMs.

OEM branded OS Discs, on the other hand, can be used in the same way as you would deploy any retail OS disc from M$. And insofar as you possess an authentic & legally obtained license to the OS you're installing, how or where you got the install media from is irrelevant.
