Windows 7 Pro "Dirty Install" instructions needed.
Is there a link here or elsewhere for a Windows 7 Professional [I own the MS blue 64 & 32-bit set] "dirty install?"
Reason for asking: Both of my OS image files are corrupt; Since I cannot do a full-image restore with either image -- an error eventually crops up & everything comes to a screetching halt -- even after doing Folder by Folder by Folder restoration, using both images," computer posts, but never boots into Windows Safe or UnSafe modes. Can boot USB sticks or CD-DVDs all day long

You should be able to download a windows 7 iso and make your own disk and then do an install using your product key. Check these previous threads:

Thanks all! Believe it -- I was able to do a "dirty install" onto my Laptop S03. First using Acronis Disk Director 12 to make sure all other partitions were logical, and only C-partition was Primary and Active. After making a mistake with USB-booted MiniTool Power Data Recovery/Partition Manager and using same to get back all four partitions, I continued onward with Acronis Disk Director 12. Finally, using Acronis Tue Image, after restoring my desktop OS image onto S03 laptop, then restoring via Folder/File checkboxes the original S03-OS image onto said S03 laptop. First few boots were 800x600, moved up to whatever top end resolution; am now in the process of removing software meant for only the desktop. If anyone's interested: Before the above, I tried restoring S03 Folders & Files only, after many many noBoots, gave up and went with the above plan.
