The last time I used Microsoft's media creation tool to download a friend's Windows from his key, I got the message that this is a version of Windows that can only be obtained by the manufacturer of the computer and that I should use the recovery options in the boot menu.

Doesn’t Microsoft have the media creation tool for making installation disks of the operating system?
 
I thought this was the case the last time I looked, and the key is not necessary since you sign in to your Microsoft account.
 
Am I wrong?

Lenny,
To my knowledge, a system repair would not eliminate all that junk.
I think a certified repair person can download an image for a brand computer and reinstall Windows with your Windows key.
But as far as I know, companies like HP and Dell don't let us download clean images that will work with your product key.

I do not remember how to initiate a windows system repair but that is mute at the moment. I was in Staples this afternoon and took a quick look at some desktop computers. They have 2 HP systems one for a little over $400 and next week a larger model that should be around $450. I never had a brand name machine before all were home or custom built eliminating all of the junk that is pre loaded. Now my question is if I purchase one of these machines will system repair download windows and eliminate all of the junk?
