So, I need to re-install windows 7 after having to install a new HDD on my XPS 15.

When I purchased the pc, I didn't receive a windows disk - is it possible to reinstall Windows 7 with the product key information or how to Dell deal with this issue?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

You can download a copy of the Windows 7 install disk for your version at http://www.askvg.com/direct-do.....d-64-bit/. It will be in a .iso format which you can burn to a DVD with Imgburn. Very easy to do.
