I Have a Toshiba OEM Laptop and I want to wipe my drive using DBAN(DARIK'S BOOT AND NUKE) and start from scratch.
But this laptop came with NO CD and I was wondering a fews things, can I re-install Vista(or preferably Windows 7 if posible) on my OEM laptop and do I need a specific CD in particular?
Here's a bit of info about my computer.
OS SYSTEM: Vista Home Basic
VERSION: 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
SMBIOS VERSION: 2.4

MODEL: Satellite L355

I didn't list my CD-KEY for confidential reasons, but can I use a retail CD/DVD to re-install Vista or Windows 7 on an OEM system?
Hope you reply back soon THANKS!!!
