Reinstalling windows with an image file
Hi I want to format my pc and reinstall windows. I have a legit windows cd but unfortunately it is damaged and unusable. I have a the serial number. My question is can i reinstall windows from a windows image file that is burned on a cd? I have this as a back up in case anything happened to the real one but i have never used it before. I want to know if it will work because i dont want to format my pc only to discover that i cant get windows back on. Please help. Thank you.
