    OK, I already have an issue, right at the first hurdle!

    "Setup has failed to validate to product key"

    This is a fully legit version of Windows 7!

    Assuming that you're doing a clean install, you first have to make sure, that you're installing Home/Pro according to what your W7 license is.

    I haven't even had that option

    This is the very beginnings - using the media creator tool.

    I ran it, agreed to terms, it downloads. Then it come up with that validation message. Kind of hard to believe really.

    Since your last message, I have ran this as administrator - lets see how it goes. If it fails I will just stick with 7 for the time being.

    What is the W7 you have? Home or Pro?

    And.....it failed again.

    What kind of service is this from Microsoft, in all honesty?

    I am running 7 Professional.

    Cheers for the links

    It looks like I will probably have to do the create media option and boot it up from a USB or DVD. Which I will hold off on for now.

    In other news - mysteriously my PC is acting 'normal' now this morning. I can open up programs without any delays like before. Only yesterday, I had to wait almost 15 mins for the PC to come to life before I could open any program..

    Technology - it never ceases to surprise me!

    And it never will... especially when Microsoft is involved.

    Try the tutorials above and I believe you'll have no problem. Good luck!

    Haha true!

    I think I will hold off for now, I needed to get some photo's done and the PC seems to be well again and no longer sick.

    I will more than likely eventually make the switch to 10 though.
