Correct installation of the new hard drive for Windows 7

Have a disk hard fatal crash with Dell OEM Windows 7on, so I bought a new hard drive compatible system and have my old system Win 7/recovery of data on a memory stick. It's been years that last I formatted, partitioned and installed an operating system on a new hard drive and I totally forgot how it's done. Vaguely remember some DOS commands were required to work out of BIOS (?). Can anyone list the individual measures to be taken, assuming that the hard drive is physically installed and turned on? It would be a great help!

Unless this stick memory has on her installation files as well, you cannot reinstall win7 on the new hard drive

You will need the DVD / or the ISO of Win7.


And no you do not need BACK. Just the dvd or ISO / to boot from. Then you can format / partition in the configuration screen

  • where are my drivers? new installation on the new hard drive

    I have a dimension e510, I put in a new hard drive. I got the windows xp disk, I added when I bought the computer. In general, the hard drive is partitioned or something with the operating system on the hard disk of windows xp.

    In any case after I installed widows xp, everything works except that I have the yellow question mark by 'other devices', I noticed that when I tried this computer with my main computer of the network. All of the devices under the heading other have no driver video Ethernet, PCi, for example - video works as I have a video card.

    So I tried to install the drivers and windows is unable to find them. I still have the installation disc into the computer. Being one of the drivers for the Ethernet - i cannot access the internet to get drivers. Help

    OK, I found the drivers on the dell site. I was able to install or update several drivers that I didn't need. the pilot opne I need comes in a cab file  Where do I put this? I've tried several things that work. When I low laoded the other driver of dell updtates, they all seemed different and they are all installed without problem


    You will need to download "Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection " of Dell on a USB key and install the driver for your Netbook have access to the internet.

    A CAB file is a ZIP , CAB file is just the Microsoft format for a compressed folder save bandwidth on their server they save as aCAB , you can open and then select all and extract here where the files need. For the most part, these files will file dell cascading, images and Html pages.

    Try to download the network card in your computer to get the correct driver installed for your problem.

  • Quality/compatibility of the new hard drive for my laptop

    I have a toshiba satellite A105-S2194. I went online to get a replacement from the hard drive. The guy who I spoke to suggested that I get the data of 1 TB 2.5 5400 RPM. I asked if this was no exaggeration for my computer and if she would work with her. He assured me he would. I have windows 7 to load on this subject. My question is. It is true that he did and work in my laptop? It is with Fed - ex delivery and need to know whether to install or send back

    The SATA standard is so clearly defined that virtually any disk 2.5 "will work on a laptop. High speed drives (7200 RPM +) could draw in theory more current that might have been specified, even if the newer readers are more effective. With regard to the compatibility of the BIOS limitation of size should not enter up to 2 TB

    Even if the laptop is quite old it supports disks more large, Toshiba lists only readers that they mounted but Crucial list upgrades up to 1 TB.

  • Satellite Pro L650: Windows could not complete the installation on the new HARD drive

    At the present time, I have a 500 GB HARD drive installed. As soon as I got it, I did a recovery on 3 DVD media.

    I just tried to replace the HARD drive with a 1 to one. All copied OK and after dvd 3 that I was told to release the dvd. I did this and the computer turns off. I turned it on and it started to (don't remember the exact words used) set the drivers.

    However I have now received the message that "Windows cannot complete installation" and telling me to reinstall. I did it, but after the steps above have repeated the same message appears.

    Pls help.

    I don't see why my computer should be limited to a 500 GB HARD drive.

    Thank you


    The computer is NOT limited to 500 GB HARD drive
    You can use more big 500 GB hard drives. You have confirmed that the laptop supports 1 TB HARD drive and the system recognizes the 1 TB HARD drive.

    The problem could be the use of the recovery diskette. Why?
    Because the recovery disk creates the same partitions that were available on the 500 GB HARD drive. This could create problems of system due to the large size of HARD drive.

    Well, I think that you could install the system by using the clean installation of Microsoft Windows disk.
    Missing other drivers or tools can be downloaded from Toshiba page.

  • Incompatible with the controller hard drive for Windows 10 update

    After 4 TEC, I was able to update Windows 10.  Now the report of compatibility for my computer says that my hard disk controller is not compatible with Windows 10.  I have Windows 7 and its been running pretty well with some minor problems.  When I go to search for drivers or windows updates, it seems to continue indefinitely and do nothing.  Not sure if that has anything to do with the controller, but I thought I would include this information.

    The latest technology suggested that I go to my local IT guy... funny, considering it's my computer at home.  What are my options?  Or someone has an idea how I could get the controller fixed my own?  Or should I consider 10 Windows a lost cause and wait until I get a new computer?  Thank you!

    Hello!  Thanks for the reply.  I've updated driver for the controller, and the next day was 10 Windows in my Windows Update.  I opened it to the top, and it worked!   Now have 10 Windows happily running on my computer.  Thanks for the information!

  • No Internet after the new hard drive and Windows 7 Clean reinstall

    I have a Dell Studio XPS 9100 I bought in 2011.

    The Seagate Barracuda SATA 1 TB hard drive died, and I replaced it with a Seagate Barracuda 2 TB drive. The re - install Windows 7 went ok, but I couldn't connect to the net.

    A ran the device driver and got errors on the network card and the RAID.

    I went on the site of Dell for the 9100 and installed the drivers for the adapter and the RAID.

    No luck. I always get the error "no card" as well as the error 'no cable not connected.

    I read a lot of posts about this problem and am stuck.

    Someone has an idea how I can fix this once and for all and go on the internet?

    I advise to patch Windows 7 with the WSUS Offline Update:

    Dell System Software:

    Intel Chipset Device Software:

    NEC USB 3.0 host driver:

    Card reader:

    Intel Matrix Storage Manager:

    Realtek NIC:

    Atheros Wireless Card:

    Note make sure that all the drivers for Dell extract and install and extract not only. If they extract only you will need to manually launch the setup.exe in the extracted folder.

  • How to install the new hard drive and windows key?


    I have a aspire v5-121-c72g32nkk.
    I have just updated to Windows 10, don't panic, but I want to upgrade my HD drive to a SSD drive.

    You can find the steps to do this?
    Windows was preinstalled, how I reinstall on another drive?
    I have no serial key or whatever it is.
    I'm a bit lost, you have an idea?


    There are several ways to do this, anyone have product keys, since

    If you want to do a clean install:

    Windows 7-8 - 8.1 keys are embeeded on your BIOS

    Windows 10 use a generic key during the upgrade, so just skip the steps questions about a product key and the first time you connect on the web, it will authenticate to.

    You must decide:

    (1) do a clean install of your operating system to factory

    (2) make a disk - image of the system image and reload

    (3) to do a clean install of windows 10

    option 2 is the fastest at the end, as you create a copy of your HARD drive and reload it to your PC.

    you need a bootable windows 10 (USB or DVD) media and little space on external HARD drive.
