Keeping track of the steps and how long this shit takes
8:30-11:37 - Still backing up files
11:37 update - So apparently neither of the two legitimate disc copes of Windows 7 I own work. Now, I have to format a USB flash drive and download an ISO from the Microsoft website.
My first product key gave me an "error" because apparently Microsoft doesn't consider it legitimate. Thanks. The second one I tried work and now I'm install the ISO from the Microsoft website whch is going to take 20 minutes because of their generous download speeds.
