Copy a windows 7 OEM install disk from Dell
Posted on 2010-01-12
I am trying to make a spare copy of the Dell Windows 7 reinstall DVD that came with our computers. It seems to be a little too big to fit on my DVDs.
I remember back with 3 1/2 floppies, that microsoft had a copy protection scheme that made it hard to copy win 3.11? floppies? - a dir would show 1.6 MB on a 1.44 floppy - they were accessing some unused sectors that normal diskcopy couldn't access, but then an app came out to do the copy.
Is that what's going on now with win 7?
