Change HARD drive can always use recovery disk to reinstall Windows?

I have a HP dv7-4296nr, partition recovery and recovery disks. Now, I want to change the current HARD drive to the new HARD drive. But I wonderring after I change the HARD drive, can I use the restore disc I burned before reinstalling windows?



Yes you can.  Your existing set of recovery disks will not only install the operating system on the new hard drive, but will also reinstall all of the original software that came with your laptop as well as re - create the Partition D of recovery on the new drive.

  • Got the error using recovery disk to reinstall Windows 7

    I write this cause maybe it could be useful to someone in the same situation I was.

    After the events of my Z930, I decided to reinstall my laptop to the State of Out-Of-Box. In my first time I got an error, that I didn't understand, so I did on the second attempt:

    1 extract in the Bios and set the COMMAND SATA COMPATIBILITY MODE
    2 erase all SSD, data, partitions, sectors... etc ALL

    The second attempt was successful!

    Usually if the problem is option SATA solution should not be the BIOS option change but load SATA driver before Win7 installation begins. With SATA option enabled (no compatibility mode) HARD drive works correctly and with maximum efficiency.

    Your solution is just solution and a sort of temporary solution.

    you use a key OEM SLP to win 7, which requires a bios compatible win 7 for activation of the auto. 20/06/2008 bios date is well before win 7 is out.

    you will need to buy a genuine windows or return to windows, your computer comes with that.

    OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes to the factory. This key is designed to work with the special instructions isn't on the hardware of this manufacturer. Then, when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP (in factory) Windows 7 key leans on the motherboard and he sees special instructions and activates. (that's why you had no need to turn on your computer after you brought it home)

  • What replacement hard drives can be used by the HPE - 480 t?

    I have a HPE - 480 t who had 2 Seagate 750 GB hard drives (7200.12) in a Raid 0 configuration.  A hard drive has stopped working.  I need to replace the two hard drives.  I'd rather have enough space to put 1.3 TB of data on one disc so I could put the new disks in RAID 1 (mirror).

    I ordered and installed two Segate 2 TB disks (7200.14).  When I use Symaantec System Recovery to recover a point of well known recovery (*.v2i) OR when I do a hand of WIndows 7 install, I get the material errors.  After restarting the machine after doing a system recovery, Windows starts in safe mode hangs at classpnp.sys.  A hand of Windows 7 installation error "Windows cannot be installed on this material.

    Please let me know what I can use to get this machine running hard drives!  I'm desperate!

    Thank you!

    A usb key with a lot more capacity can not be recognized as an option to boot your PC.

    Consider using a smaller in the range of 4 to 8 GB to create a Windows Installer with the download USB\DVD tool.

    Unfortunately, your PC is one of few wthat is a simulator of BIOS, I can't access.

  • Satellite M30 - what compatible HARD drive can I use?


    My Satellite M30 hard drive crashed (after 3 years of intensive use). I would like to replace it, but I don't know which drive is suitable (SATA, ATA 6... etc). The original for this computer hard disk is the MK6021GAP.

    Can someone hep me on this subject? By the way, is - it complicated to replace the hard drive on this computer?

    Thank you

    Use the advanced search of this forum and you will get several results with different threads on the same topic.
    The replacement is not difficult. At the bottom f the unit, you will find a HARD drive Bay. Armand, remove the cover and cut the shape of the disk of the controller. But be careful.

  • Tecra S1 - size HARD drive can I use


    I have a Tecra S1 and looking to upgrade the hard drive because it is only the 30 GB model.
    I found the HDD compatible in terms of size, but my question was if there was a restriction on the ability of the HARD drive, or I can go to any size I want?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks Chris


    AFAIK the Tecra is supported by the IDE HDD controller and you have the 2.5 IDE HARD drive.
    I guess that the IDE controller supports ATA-100 standard and therefore the LBA48bit would be too pressed and this means that you can use hard disks of more than 120 GB.

    But if the ATA-5 controller / LBA28bit ATA/66 only then would be sustained and in this case, you can only use the 120 GB HARD drive as a larger size.

  • What HARD drive can I use Satellite A60-125

    I would like to know what type of hard drive I can install on my satellite A60 (Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz) to upgrade the original Hitachi 40 GB. Can I install a 160/200 GB 2.5 "of any type (brand, RPM, capacity,...) or there are some limitations of the bios? Thank you.

    Hello Ric

    There is unfortunately no public on this matter document because Toshiba does not support upgrade. Toshiba gives some info on built in hardware and also on the RAM max that can be used. Upgrade takes care of disk HARD authorized partner in your country, and they have exact information on this subject.

    Yes I think there is limitation in the BIOS, but I'm sure that you can use up to 100 GB HARD drive, maybe more, but as I said it is not easy to find info on any official page of Toshiba.

    If you are lucky someone will post here the news of A60 laptop upgrade. Until then try to contact find some information online. Google all over the place.

  • Re: Satellite Pro A300 - recovery disk will reinstall Windows OS on the new HARD drive

    Hard drive of my Satellite Pro A300 failed. It has now been replaced. I ordered a recovery disk.
    This will allow me to reinstall Windows Vista OS that is installed initially?

    Also, I get this message "BOOTMGR MISSING". The recovery disc will fix this problem too?
    Thanks in advance!

    > I ordered a recovery disk. This will allow me to reinstall Windows Vista OS that is installed initially?
    Yes. Without a doubt.

    New HARD drive is recognized correctly in the BIOS settings?
    If so avoid any problem.

    Moreover, A300 works perfectly and much better with Win7 32 bit.

  • Failure of disk hard A10 and replacement - using recovery disks?

    I have a Satellite Pro A10, who suffered a hard disk failure. I replaced the hard drive (with a non-toshiba drive) but cannot load the OS etc. from the recovery disks provided with the computer when new. When you start the computer upwards with recovery No. 1 disc in the CD drive I get the message "system no valid disk, replace the disk and then press any key" any suggestion as to the repair would be welcome.


    Well, it's not easy to say why it doesn t work. Have you tried to start the recovery with the second disc? Have you checked whether the CD 1 is a scratch?
    If it is not possible to recover the operating system with the supplied restore CD, I suggest to ask ASP for a new recovery CD.

    Good bye

  • Satellite P200-13Z - upgrade the hard drive - can I use SATA II hard drives?

    I have a Satellite P200-13Z with simple standard Fujitsu 120 GB SATA hard drive. I want to change this to a RPM SATA II 250 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM drive. This interface SATA laptop does support SATA II? Thank you very much!

    Not your portable computer does not support SATA II.

    However, you can buy the SATA II hard drive and put it in your laptop. Only way to get it going is to restrict the new speed of SATA HDD, I accelerate. To do this is to introduce a jumper on the drive to restrict it to SATA I speeds up. Once it's done put in your laptop and viola, it works.

    Good luck, but I would like to get a toshiba technician to install it if its under warranty. It's for your own good, so you don't turn your laptop into a boat anchor.
