    Good day to all, it has been a long while but I am back because my harddisk died on me.
    Need some help on this guys.
    Since I can no longer access the old harddisk, I was only left with the cds that i made when prompt by fujitsu during the initial usage of the laptop.

    My external cd reader is busted and am not sure if by getting a new one and just booting the recovery cds with a blank harddisk it will initiate windows install.

    I tried going to microsoft website to try download win 7 home premium to get the iso image and later activate with my windows activation key but microsoft says I cannot just simply walk into mordor. Lol. Jk.
    Something about preinstalled software and there is the need to contact fujitsu.

    Anybody knows a quick workaround?
    Sorta urgent on the laptop usage, still my old reliable workhorse and dota 1 machine.
    Still noob on comps. Sorry again.
    All help is greatly appreciated.

    all you need to do is find an oem version of windows and when you install it, it will recognise your windows key from a chip with that information on your motherboard.
    You can use rufus to build a windows 8.1 oem bootable usb image.
