There are many versions of the Windows DVDs so what you are asking for is rarely possible. The customer must supply the right CD or DVD or must order them.
In fact you can't use retail CD/DVDs to repair many OEM installs. This lesson is one you may have to repeat to learn why.
So the answer is no. This rarely turns out well. You'll end up damaging more installs than fixing them if you do this to most pre-installed Windows.
Hello, I have started a computer repair business. I have worked for a couple companies as a computer technician. I am in college and need some cash so I decided to take my skills as a CompTIA certified technician and use them. My first problem. I don't have Windows discs. My last work (Microsoft Certified Partner) had all of the OSs burned to multiple discs. Any serial would work as long as it was legit and for that operating system. I don't want to pirate the ISOs because I don't want to install corrupted illegal software on other peoples computers. I want to be able to reinstall their software as long as the persons license is legit. What do I need to do? Can I use OEM discs? Do I need TechNET discs? Thank you. I need solutions for XP, and Vista too. Maybe Windows outreach could help me.
