Pasted from my post in another forum:
My netbook HDD died, and I'm replacing the HDD with a new one.
Problem: I can't transfer my OS over, as I didn't backup my install in any way (I have no OS disc or USB memory stick with the install files on it). I have a legitimate license for a copy of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, and I know the key; just have no way to get the install files.
What are my options here? I'm a bit rusty when it comes to fresh installs of OSes (it's been a while).
