Trying to reinstall windows 7 on my computer? Help please!?

Okay... so I lost everything on my computer when I was out of the country. Spilled coke on my computer and had to have the hard drive replaced. I got it fixed and the new hard drive has a professional version of windows 7 (in spanish) on it. The version that was put on did not have a license. I planned to come back to the US and reinstall my windows home premium 7 disc on it, but when I insert the disc into the drive, the computer cannot read it. It makes a loud buzzing noise and then ejects itself from the drive. The computer can read other discs. I also inserted the disc into another computer and it is not being read. Any ideas on why this is happening? Did Dell give me a faulty disc? The serial number on it is P/N 00WK4. Any help is greatly appreciated.


The disc is probably damaged and there's no way you can fix it. Either you order a new set of recovery discs from Dell or get a Windows 7 installer. I'll assume you still have the OEM sticker containing the product key for your Windows 7 Professional edition. As you didn't say what version (32 or 64-bit) you have, choose the right one to download: Windows 7 Professional Edition SP1 (bootable) x86 (32-bit) version -- http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/ X17-24280.iso x64 (64-bit) version -- http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/ X17-24281.iso Those are genuine ISO images of Windows 7 Pro w/ integrated Service Pack 1 installer. It comes from Digital Rivers which is Microsoft's official online retailer of Microsoft products. Downloading the files from Digital River is absolutely legal and completely free of charge. As this is an official download channel, you can also be sure to receive a disk image free of viruses and malware. Without a legally obtained Product Key however, any Windows 7 installation will only run for 30 days. Afterwards, it needs to be activated. If you have a valid Product Key, this should not be a problem. If you have at least 4GB of RAM or are planning on adding more memory, plan ahead and choose the 64-bit version. If your product key is not for Windows 7 Pro but for a different edition like Home Premium or Ultimate, convert the ISO image to a universal installer so you can still use the image to install the edition you need. Use this converter: http://code.kliu.org/misc/winisoutils/ Burn the ISO image to a DVD or transfer it to a USB flash drive using this Microsoft USB / DVD Download Tool: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msst ore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool Use either the DVD or USB flash drive to reinstall your OS and activate it with the OEM product key that matches the edition you installed.

From ur question,it seems ur disc is badly scratched. Try to recover all the data from the CD in any other computer ,Then write a new cd.Serial no. will be the same,License encoder must be turned off,After installation.
Xihu | Jan 04, 2012
I say the disc is faulty since it was not read by other computer. Buy new disc and try reinstalling.
Laurence I | Jan 04, 2012
This is a common problem due to being out of balance the process of creating a flat plastic disc is not the most technically advanced. and there are several easy solutions 1 get dell to replace the disk 2 just DUPLICATE the disk in A N Other DESKTOP pc, use older media(slower speed) if ...possible to guarantee that the media will be recognised.

Did your computer come with an OEM sticker containing the product key? If yes, all you need to do is find a Windows 7 installer disc and use the same product key to activate it.

    Excellent Alternative to Windows 8 for Those Coming From Windows XP

    I was forced to move up to Windows 7 Professional from Windows XP because of Microsoft ending XP support even though I was happy using XP. My desktop PC is a 2008 Dell Optiplex 740. I need a new computer and will buy one with Windows 7 Pro as soon as I can work it into the budget but for now I have to use this machine for a few more months.After researching my options using customer reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere online, I determined that I did not want to go with Windows 8 and opted for Windows 7 Pro. I learned from reading one review about the OEM version and decided that was the one to get and I bought a copy. My girlfriend was in the same boat with her own Dell Optiplex 740 XP PC so she also bought Win 7 Pro OEM.I successfully installed the Win 7 Pro OEM on both PCs between 4/7/14 and 4/9/14, activated them and installed most of our daily use software and we haven't had any problems so far except for a glitch in my Camtasia Studio 3 (caused by a... 5/5 C.K.

This review is from: Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit (OEM) System Builder DVD 1 Pack (New Packaging) (Software) This was indeed a copy of Windows 7 Pro and a genuine Microsoft disk BUT, the product key code had obviously been razor bladed off another machine and this genuine but used key code was just stuck in the non Microsoft DVD case. The whole thing had been poorly re-shrink wrapped. This is not a legal way to sell Microsoft OEM software as it can only be used on one machine.

    It's mandatory for slightly better gaming performance. if you can stand 5 FPS lower, go for windows 7.

    I was building a new PC, and I wanted this OS because it is more modern than windows 7, which is from 2009, and is less demanding, meaning more of my hardware can be focused on gaming.Here are the pros and consPros:-as said previously, better optimization for new hardware. This OS will use up to 8 threads, so it puts less stress on AMD 8 core processors and hyperthreaded quad cores. It also just flat out runs better with newer hardware. I have a quad core non hyperthreaded processor (i5-4570), and it gets better benchmarks than on windows 7.Cons:-UI.

    Not As Bad As You've Heard

    This is the single license OEM version which means you can only install it on one PC (no license transfer allowed) and there is no tech support from Microsoft but if you're buying this version, you probably already know that. This version has the 8.1 upgrade patches baked in so you don't have suffer through the (free) update if you have the 8.0 version and that alone is worth it for me. Some of the highlights with 8.1 include the ability to boot to the desktop as well as customization tweaks with wallpapers and the app start screen.I've docked it one star due to the confusing start screen/app screen/desktop layout. I don't think it really works that well and seems needlessly complicated.The modern/metro apps are often cartoonish and sort of a waste.

    Flexible and Versitile OS

    Windows 8.1 does a good job of polishing the new Windows functionality added in Windows 8. Windows 8 was a little rough around the edges in some ways.Windows 8 and 8.1 are basically improved versions of Windows 7 that also have the ability to OPTIONALLY run Windows Store (tablet/touch optimized) apps as well. The benefit of this is that it gives you the ability to use one OS and set of applications on any device including a multi-monitor desktop, laptop, tablet, or some hybrid combination of those. There is a bit of a learning curve with Windows 8.x, but once you spend a little time with it and configure it for the device it's installed on, you can move seamlessly between traditional keyboard/mouse optimized desktop programs and full screen touch/tablet optimized apps on the same device depending on what you need to get done. You can even have a tablet that plugs into a docking station and becomes a multi-monitor desktop. This isn't something that can currently be done with... 5/5 C.

    How do-it-yourselfers do Windows.

    If you've reinstalled Windows just once in your life, you've learned enough to tackle a full virgin installation of Windows 7 from an OEM copy. Microsoft has finally created an operating system with so much built-in support and maintenance technology it practically does all the work for you, so if your current Windows XP machine is labeled "Windows Vista Capable" or "Windows 7 Capable," this is the way to go.

Microsoft has finally created an operating system with so much built-in support and maintenance technology it practically does all the work for you, so if your current Windows XP machine is labeled "Windows Vista Capable" or "Windows 7 Capable," this is the way to go.

    OEM Microsoft product

    I love the system builder version of Windows 7--- it installs the operating system only--- no junk, no ads, no nonsense. Instead if me having to spend hours deleting everything I do not need, I spend that time reinstalling my applications and being productive. What still surprises me is how fast it installs compared to all previous versions of Windows. I had the system to the point it was starting to update itself in less than 30-minutes which is awesome.I have installed both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions without a hitch. The only [minor] gripe is that I wish I could set it on autopilot to install ALL of the updates without any intervention back-to-back-to-back. It seems as though it goes through the motions of updating this group which then triggers that grouping. I know I can just leave auto update on and let it do it over time, but I want it all done now. So while doing some other things I would go back every 20-min to see if I need to do anything. After a few... 5/5 The Goat (Maryland) - See all my reviews, January 20, 2012

    There are a couple of shortcomings....

    0 3/5 Dan Z "-dan z-" (Northeast Tennessee, home of the free) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Windows 7 Professional SP1 32bit (Full) System Builder OEM DVD 1 Pack [Old Packaging] (Software) Using this disk produces a Win-7 system with OEM as the character part of the product ID. Thus if you need support from Microsoft, you can not get it for free. They tell you to contact the computer manufacturer, who would presumably be the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) who installed Windows. You do have the option of paying for Microsoft support or asking questions on the Microsoft Forum (I have found that to be pretty useless).Also, this disk can not be used as a repair disk. It only has two modes: upgrade and install. "Upgrade" actually re-installs the operating system but supposedly saves your files and settings. Using either option requires registering the installation with Microsoft again, and the papers included with the disk indicate that, except in special circumstances, it can only be used once. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2013

    Worth the Wait

    I'll admit, I've been running Windows 7 for six months now: the preproduction version of it and have just upgraded to the gold code. So I have quite a bit of experience with the operating system. Let's get to the nitty gritty:Should you upgrade from Windows Vista? YES! I mean it - upgrade today.Windows 7 is quite simply faster, more stable, boots faster, goes to sleep faster, comes back from sleep faster, manages your files better and on top of that it's beautiful to look at and easy to use. Even the preproduction version of Windows 7 was better than my Vista with SP2.Should you upgrade from Windows XP? Maybe, but for different reasons.XP is a good operating system and if you don't need to add new hardware or software, XP is good. However, XP is old as an operating system. Also chances are that if you're running XP, you might not meet the minimum requirements for Windows 7 - check the compatibility site at Microsoft to see if your system will... 5/5 RenaissanceMan - See all my reviews, October 22, 2009

    Flawless install on 2009 Macbook

    I purchased this full version so I could load it on my Macbook via bootcamp and it worked flawlessly. All of the drivers for my computer peripherals were loaded correctly. The At&T Uverse wireless internet was configured in a snap. Bootcamp is a great utility. I was only able to load 32 bit version because my mac was just on the outside of the requirements for 64 bit. But it still works great! I really like this version of windows. We use XP at work and it was great for a while especially after win 95 but Win 7 is incredible. We skipped Vista so this upgrade was long overdue. Everything seems to work better. The Adobe CS 5 suite is amazing on Win 7. I wish there were better font management options. All in good time I assume.*update* 7-23-2012I have finally upgraded my Mac to lion and Win 7 still runs perfectly on the bootcamp drive. I had waited longer than I usually would to upgrade Mac OS X because I was reading that there was some issues with the bootcamp... 5/5 John Schultz (Midwest USA) - See all my reviews, August 4, 2010

    Here Comes Windows 7

    Here comes Windows 7, nearly three years after Windows Vista and eight years after Windows XP. By most accounts, Windows 7 is what Vista should have been. Do we finally have a worthy successor to XP?PROS:- Fast startup and performance- Stable- Nice aesthetic and functional changes to the desktop- Improved networking, power management & security- 32-bit & 64-bit versions included- Windows Media Center- Windows XP Mode (Professional & Ultimate only)CONS:- User Account Control still annoying- Upgrade can be challenging- ExpensiveThere are only two Microsoft operating systems I've personally skipped since DOS 6.x-- Windows ME and Windows Vista. Windows ME was so terrible that PC World coined it the "Mistake Edition." Vista, when initially released, was considered to be bloated, relying on higher hardware requirements than XP, while being outperformed by XP on identical hardware.

    Phenomenal Device That Offers so Many Features!

    The RavPower FileHub RP-WD02 is a really great multi-functional device. It is a six in one device that has the ability to act as a portable wireless router, micro SD card reader and writer, provide USB storage device access, act as a NAS File Server, Power Bank and Wi-Fi 2.4 GHZ 802.11b/g/n Hotspot. The RP-WD02 is the 2nd revision of RavPower's FileHub. The first model which is currently still available on Amazon is the RP-WD01, there are some similarities between the two devices but the RP-WD02 seems to be an upgraded device with additional features.Main differences between the RavPower FileHub RP-WD02 and the older Ravpower FileHub RP-WD01:- 6000 mAh internal battery versus 3000 mAh internal battery in the previous model- Micro SD slot versus SD slot in the previous model- Ethernet port added to the newer modelThe best feature about the FileHub in my opinion is the ability to access and transfer files on storage devices wirelessly, whether... 5/5 Bob (US) - See all my reviews This review is from: [6-in-1] RAVPower FileHub Wireless N Portable Pocket Travel Router Wireless Micro SD TF Card Reader with Built-in 6000mAh External Battery Pack,Wireless USB,Wireless Flash,Mobile Storage Media Sharing, WLAN Hot Spot & NAS File Server (Black) (Personal Computers) The RavPower FileHub RP-WD02 is a really great multi-functional device.

    Great use as bridge for home!

    This is a review for the "[6-in-1] RAVPower FileHub." I have used it for a few months on and off and so far it is pretty good in what I've used it for. A few things that I noticed when using is that it's not crazy big or bulky, it can fit in one's pocket, as long as you're not wearing anything slim/skinny, has only micro-SD slot, and you can connect to it via wireless for initial setup. The SSID and password is located on the back of the device. When you connect to SSID, the IP to login to device is there as well. Once login, I used the wizard to set it up. You can change all logins/passwords along w/ SSID. Default security for the device was Mixed WPA/WPA2, I changed it to WPA2 only as it is most secure. I connected the device to my wireless router, it took a few scans but was able to connect easily. Note that I have an extremely old wireless card on my PC. I was still connected to the FileHub and wanted to run some speed tests. The download speed was 1/3 of what I got when... 5/5 jimb0 (Atlantic City, NJ) - See all my reviews This review is from: [6-in-1] RAVPower FileHub Wireless N Portable Pocket Travel Router Wireless Micro SD TF Card Reader with Built-in 6000mAh External Battery Pack,Wireless USB,Wireless Flash,Mobile Storage Media Sharing, WLAN Hot Spot & NAS File Server (Black) (Personal Computers) This is a review for the "[6-in-1] RAVPower FileHub."

    Worth every penny

    This is my review of the FileHub RP-WD02 Data reader External Battery and router. First off this product is very great it comes in handy for when your phone needs to be charged. I tested it with my iPhone 5 and I went from 0 to 100% real quick. 1 hr. and my bat is at 100%. It works great for me especially since all the students in my college run to plug in their phone. in the wall and leave no slots open Hence the RAVPower filehub. I have also been able to charge my Phone, IPad, and two other phones and the bat is still going strong. The 6000 mAh battery is great as it left me with tons of battery to charge multiple devices.The media share is great as this lets you Play files on another computer in your home, it also lets people who log on to your computer with their own user accounts play the files in your Player library so no need for that external HDD. Media sharing does not allow you to share files outside of your network therefore it can protect you from multiple... 5/5 John M - See all my reviews This review is from: [6-in-1] RAVPower FileHub Wireless N Portable Pocket Travel Router Wireless Micro SD TF Card Reader with Built-in 6000mAh External Battery Pack,Wireless USB,Wireless Flash,Mobile Storage Media Sharing, WLAN Hot Spot & NAS File Server (Black) (Personal Computers) This is my review of the FileHub RP-WD02 Data reader External Battery and router.
