    You cannot use a restore disk. You will need a full-version install DVD.

    You MAY be able to use an OEM disk and save some money. The legality of this is not entirely clear. Microsoft says it's against its policy, but from what I've read, the licensing law is not clear as to whether or not Microsoft has the right to limit the use of its software in that manner.
