Dell Inspiron 3520 - hard drive failure - how to install Windows 8 on the new hard drive

I bought Dell Inspiron 3520. My hard drive has stopped working completely. It was stated as dead hard drive by diagonstic center.

I have now bought a new hard drive but have lost data and windows 8 preload on the original hard drive. Dell did not provide any recovery disk for Windows 8 pre-loaded on portable hard drive. How can I then install windows 8 / 10 on my new hard drive?

The .iso image file official 10565 has only:

  • Overview of the House of insiders
  • Overview of the Insider Pro

Unfortunately, there are 5 editions of Windows 10 and so 3 are missing. If your key is not automatically entered and accepted, it's probably a simple language edition or edition N.

When Microsoft release 10586 - TH2 - 1511 Version they will probably have an .iso that contains all 5 editions in 1 .iso or alternatively 5 .isos distinct (I hope as the first case that it will make Windows installation much easier).

    You can move the windows on a new computer

    If it's a full license or upgrade retail - Yes. You can move it to another computer as long as it is installed on a single computer at a time (and if it's a Windows 7 Upgrade version the new computer must have its own license of qualification). The previous Windows installation on your old computer must be formatted or deleted. You will have to perhaps call Microsoft and explain what happened to complete activation. Turning it on the second computer will automatically be in effect 'disable' the license for the first computer.

    If it's an OEM license - don't. OEM licenses, including Windows preinstalled on a computer before purchase and Windows purchased separately, are related to the first computer, they are installed on and cannot be transferred to another computer. To install Windows on another computer, you will need to buy another copy.

  • Install Windows 7 on the new hard drive with USB operating system recovery?

    I have an Alienware 2015 15 which does not come with a CD player. I install a new hard drive (SSD 2280 m2), so the question is how to install WIndows 7.

    While Microsoft offers an OS IOS for WIndows 8 download that you can put on a USB (with dell, I think that it automatically pulls the product key of BONE off the coast of the motherboard?) this IOS download is not available for Windows 7.

    So the question is the recovery USB OS offered by dell will allow me to do a fresh install of Windows 7 on a new hard drive in the laptop even USB from recovery of the BONES came with. My last resort is to buy a new copy of windows 7 and a USB external CD/DVD drive.

    TLDR: OS Recovery USB offered by dell will install Windows 7 on a new hard drive.

    The factory restore USB will work on another drive. I did this procedure with the media created from the latest version of Dell backup and restore on my Inspiron 13 7347 and demonstrated the creation of media and installation on a new SSD:

    Since you are using use Alienware Alienware Respawn. Alienware respawn is very similar to Dell backup and restore.

  • HP a6130n install Windows XP on the new drive


    This is my first post here.  I think I need a new hard drive for my a6130n HP install Windows XP.

    When I tried to install Windows XP on the drive – which had Vista - I kept getting several error messages whenever I tried.  Once or twice I was told to press a button if I was going to enter additional drivers out of a CD.  Then I learned all my space partition was used, so I thought that my hard drive was dead.

    I installed XP on Dells before and it was pretty simple - and never asked me if I had to add drivers.  So, I wonder, if indeed, my current hard drive is dead, can I 'just' put in a new HD Sata, get ready to go on a CD disc or memory - a6130n HP drivers and load Windows XP?

    Or should I find and buy a new hard drive with XP already and the drivers loaded and not try to do it myself?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for all your help!

    I'll try that... once more!  With a new/good HD!

    I need to know how to install the Windows 7 Home premium OEM version from the installation disc. I didn't know when I bought it on EBay, it is a generator system copy. I need to access the custom option to reinstall the full version of Home Premium on the ultimate version, which is not valid because I didn't know he could go only on a single computer. Anyway, if anyone could help me by allowing me to know where to find instructions on how to install Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version from the installation disc, I would be grateful. Or if you can send me the instructions, would be great.

    Change the BIOS so that the DVD drive is the first boot device. Save the BIOS change (exit and save) then insert the DVD and follow the instuctions. Note: OEM media can perform an installation "Custom"and clean. "

    All in one, type printers (print, copy, scan) usually have a very specific set of instructions during the installation.  If not followed exactly the probability is that the scanner will not work.


    Download and read the Setup instructions for your model, have you followed the instructions exactly, more precisely when to connect the printer / scanner during installation of the software process?
