Hello All,

Can I do a clean Install of my Vista OS using the CD that came with the computer when I bought it? My MOBO went out and had to get another one. The computer is working, but I would like to format the Hard Drive and wipe any other junk off the system, pretty much just to do it. Can I do that with the Preloaded OS CD I received?

Any help would be much appreciated!

The O/S CD is tied to the original hardware.....

Thats what I figured. I was planning on getting the Windows 7 Full install anyway. Thanks

I do have a question. When I installed my MOBO, I did not have to reinstall anything. I just replaced the MOBO and then turned on the PC and everything was normal. I didn't have to call to reactivate or anything which is strange.
