You will be given the option to format if you boot from the disc.


Solid.

No need to kill itunes or steam or anything like that previous right?

I suppose I should make certain I pick up 64bit Windows 7 disc too.


When you select to format the hard drive all data on the drive will be wiped, you won't need to uninstall Steam or iTunes individually.

yeah, it'll probably work. and if not, just call Microsoft and tell them you had to replace a part which made it non-genuine. I've had to do it once, worked just fine.

I should probably deauthorize that machine for them though I suppose.

I don't want her to have the stock OEM nonsense that came with the machine.


Don't lie, you don't want her to find your pron collection :p


Truth be told I have no porn on any of my machines. I know it's a tragedy but it's the way things are.

(I forgot to back things up when I switched from Linux and lost all my media)

I just don't want to spend a great deal of time futzing with the restore discs and then removing junk.


Ha I don't have any either. Just messing with you :p

It's all good. What people keep on their machines is none of my business. =P
