Windows 7 backup disc as a fresh install?

#1 Posted by B0HICAH (43 posts) -

Hello friends!

I am building my brand new PC this weekend. My current PC uses Windows 7, and some time ago I received a backup disc, posted here, from Microsoft, along with a product key for it.

Will this backup disc function as a fresh install of Windows 7 on my new PC once I build it, or will I have to buy a new operating system?

Thank you!
