    Default Installing Windows 7

    This morning my hard drive with my operating system fried and I cant repair or even format it for a reinstall. This alone is not enough to stop me from gaming but I can't find the 64 bit CD for windows so I was forced to install 32 version on an old hard drive as a temporary fix. I have valid CD key and what not but without the CD I'm unsure if there is any alternative way to install the 64 bit version without having the CD.

    Thanks in advanced for any advice!

    A neighbor of mine was cool enough to let me borrow his 64 bit CD and seemed to have worked fine with my key...

    CASE CLOSED!

    With the old hard drive try putting it in an anti static bag, then a plastic bag, following up with 24 hours in the freezer. You should have about 30 minutes to get files you need before it completely dies.

    I know this is 10 days old and may not help much but it doesn't look like your question was answered.

    You can get the W7 DVD ISO and setup a USB stick pretty easily. There are instructions out there for creating the USB drive, but there is also a number of tools you can download:

    What once was can never be again,
    What is now will never come anew,
    What will be will only pass once.
    Cherish it all.
