Hey guys,
Just wondering how to reformat my computer.
I have no windows disc
I can't reformat through windows explorer (computer is too clogged up with viruses)
Does this mean i have to reformat through bios and download a pirated copy of windows?
>>

You should be able to get a legit iso copy of Windows from MS's site. Then all you need is an activation key.

No piracy required as long as you have your code..... If you don't, you may need to do some piratey shit, but it's pretty easy.

>>44782256
but can i start the reformatting process without windows?
>>
Make a Linux Live CD and reformat with that.

Also please post more of the girl in OP.

>download your OS iso.
>make bootable usb using windows 7 USB/DVD download tool
>boot from usb stick and reinstall windows completely
>enter in key if using windows 7 if using windows 8 you problaby dont need to worry about it.
>when os install is done you then install drivers

NO MAKE SURE ITS FROM MICROSOFT

Microsoft links are digitalriver links.
Who do you think digitalriver is?
They are a massive content-delivery network, faster than but more limited than Akamai
