    The laptop won't boot and drive fails Diagnostics to market. Restore does not work and take the hard drive on the laptop & connection on my desktop I can not access the recovery partition. The laptop is out of warranty.

    I have a replacement drive, but as I have no install disc and cannot access the recovery partition how can I reinstall the Windows OEM 7 new hard disk?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If the full 25-character windows activation key is visible on the Microsoft Windows COA on your laptop, you can download an identical iso file from here and install Windows.

    Download the drivers from the HP support for your laptop computer portal. Put them on a flashdisk usb (USB key) for ease of installation.

    Use the Microsoft Windows 7 USD\DVD download tool and a 4 GB usb (thumbdrive) flashdisk for the fastest and most reliable Windows installation medium.

    The value in this way you can have your laptop in a usable state while you wait for your ordered recovery disk.

    If Windows 7 is not preinstalled on your computer.

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.

    You can then retrieve your personal files from the Windows.old folder and reinstall all of your applications and drivers.
