Recover the Original of Windows 8 for the new HARD drive


Drive HARD original of my Dell laptop inspiron 15R 5521 has been crushed. She had previously installed Windows 8.

And, I had upgraded to windows 10 recently.

Please guide me to reinstall windows 8 or 10 for the new HARD drive via online, coz' I don't have any support recovery (DVD or USB).

And further,

1.) is it possible to reinstall windows for one SSD?

2.) I get all venus applications (application of VGA, Audio application etc.) from Dell with my laptop with the re-installation of windows... ?

Thank you


If your system already has Windows installed and activated 10 follow my instructions here to directly download and reinstall clean Windows 10:

Looks like you're in this scenario.

Note Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 editions are specific. If your system came with Windows 8.1/10 unilingual homepage, Windows 8.1/10 will not be activated.

Unfortunately there is no clear marker for end users to determine the edition so my advise is to try first to try Windows 10 Home, if she does not activate Windows 10 unilingual homepage.

Get a SSD for optimal performance.

Dell have updated drivers for Windows 10 pilots (WT64a) system:

See installing the driver recommended order:

If Windows 10 was not enabled you must reinstall Windows 8.1 and then upgrade. Follow my instructions here:

  • How can I reinstall the window 8 for a new hard drive?

    I just got a new hard drive for Dell to replace the old, which is at the top and about to fail (according to the Dell diagnostic tool).

    Reference Dell included a record called 'Restoration of Windows 8 for Windows 8 64-bit products Support'

    I'm a layman, but can certainly replace the hard drive. What exactly should I do it (step by step, if possible) when I turn on the computer for the first time with the new hard drive in place. The disc should already be in the optical drive?

    Thanks, Alex

    There is not much to be done in any real particular order really.  It won't hurt to have the disc in the drive the first time that you start with the new player connected, but even if are not the worst case, you get a "no OS on this disc, press ctrl + Alt + Del to restart".

    When start you, you may need to press a special sequence on the keyboard like F2 or DEL or Escape to boot from the CD. He can say so on the screen, or it can just try first default (likely) CD.

    In any case, once you start from the CD, it is a wizard from there. Simply press 'next' and 'agree' and all that jazz to what Windows 8 is installed back. Then search for updates & restart for the next 4 days :)

  • 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

  • Windows 7 OEM license, cloned the new hard drive.

    I'm scratching my head on this one.

    I'm running Windows 7 Pro with an OEM license.

    Beyond December, my original hard drive started failing so I made a clone of Clonezilla and transferred to a new hard drive.  Since then, I have not been able to run Windows update and I regularly get a Windows is not real popup.  I checked the section properties and my computer Windows Activation of Windows is enabled.  I tried the site of verification but that sends me to a web page that does not seem to load correctly and 9/10 times.  When I managed to load and I downloaded the WindowsActivationUpdate tool, it gives me just a Setup 0xC8000247 error.  I tried returning my SLUI 3 product key and everything went through fine.  I checked various websites and people say that it must be good using a new hard drive, others say you can't and others are calling saying Microsoft and speak to someone.

    Can I use my OEM license when transferring to a new hard drive?  Answer, what would be the next step?

    Yes, you can use the same OEM license, because it's the same computer.

    What you need to do is probably performing a new installation. Clone software tends not to provide the best results.

    The old hard drive still works? You might try one last time to create a system image and restore it on the new hard drive:

    How to pass Windows 7 to a bigger hard drive - books...

    This of course would mean reinstall the old hard drive, create a system image and then restore it on the hard drive.

    Another option is to perform a new installation using the OEM key.

    Step 1: Download a copy of Windows 7:

    For 5 years, Microsoft made it fairly easy for users of the Windows 7 operating system to get reinstall media. If you have lost your support disc or installation retail collection; either it has been damaged or defective; You can download a copy of the edition that you have licensed from a membership site called Digital River. More recently, Microsoft ended the availability to reinstall media that you can download as a. File ISO in Digital River, which is a digital reproduction of an optical disc.

    It was particularly convenient for people who could not easily get the manufacturer's recovery media, did not want to pay the fees required to get or preferred a clean configuration without the software packaged manufacturers or even a recovery partition does not work. It's easy to use, all you had to do was reinstall and reactivate using the product key located on the certificate of authenticity and download all the drivers on the manufacturers website.

    Given that this option is no longer available, what are your options? See the article for more details:

    How to: What are my options for Windows 7 reinstall media?

    Make sure you scroll down and read the section:

    What to do if you cannot get your manufacturer recovery media, refuse to use or to buy it or the Microsoft Software Recovery Website does not work?

    Step 2: Perform a custom installation, see Windows 7 section of the following article how to perform a custom installation:

    You can also use Windows 10 too as you have the right to it as a free upgrade:

    • Turn off (preferably uninstall) your Antivirus utility before you perform the upgrade.
    • Reboot several times, and then try again.
    • Disable the general USB peripherals (for example - smart card reader).
    • If you are using a SCSI drive, make sure you have the drivers available for your storage on a thumdrive device and it is connected.

    • Perform a clean boot, restart, and then try again.
    • If you upgrade to the. ISO file, disconnect from the Internet during the installation, if you are connected in LAN (Ethernet) or wireless, disable both, then try to install.

    Okay so if please bear with me and be patient.  I'm not tech savvy.  I know enough to be able to remove an old hard drive and put another one, but when there are errors, I don't know what to do.

    Here's the situation.

    I have a Dell Studio XPS with Windows 7 installed.  I started having these notifications that my hard drive could be a failure.  I tried everything that I could find to fix it without having to buy a new HARD drive without success.  The current system has a 1 TB Seagate hard drive.  I installed a memory additional bar thingie right after that I got the computer about 4 years ago.  (If someone tells me how to find the properties of real system, I post them if necessary).  Anyway, I bought a new WD 1 TB black disk hard to install before my old dies and loses all my photos and documents, etc...

    I took the old drive yesterday and installed the new hard drive.  I put back the case and turned on the machine.  I put in my Windows 7 installation disc.  He began installing Windows 7... It's completely past the initial screen where it says it to load it and the other... I had accepted the license agreement, but did not have to make a profile and do the work and the reader.  I hope all this makes sense.  Then it pops up this message "installing Windows could not set up Windows on hardware on this computer."  I couldn't figure out what to do from there.  I got the new drive and put the old one back to and here I am. I tried to find solutions to this problem, but I either don't can't make heads or tails out of the responses on the internet or the solution is not exactly my problem.

    Please help if you can!  And if you have any suggestions, please dumb them down so I can understand what to do.  I CAN do if loaded, you just have to not talk too irritable.  Laughing out loud

    Thank you in advance!

    Maybe not...

    The Windows installation is not happy about something, and since it gets at least started which is a good thing, but your installation problem can not really be with Windows - perhaps something about Dell hardware or your 1 TB HARD drive.

    I looked at your system and found this article that you can read to see if it sounds like your original question:

    Windows Setup could not configure Windows on hardware on this computer.

    Since Dell has written an article for help on this subject, it means they've met enough times to take the time to compose the article and put it on their WWW site (but, they say, it is a possible resolution).

    Could you take the issue in the Dell online community where experts hang out (especially your amber light).

    Another good place for support is where there is a similar topic as your question (except Vista) on a Dell and a new disk of 1 TB (also a Seagate) and Dell ideas did not work, but someone else has found a way to fix it:

    The bleepingcomputer for your error message search reveals other areas and people who have got things to work in different ways, then it is perhaps another place to look for ideas.

    If the installation still fails it would not hurt to do the BIOS setting and see if things are getting longer, and since you are going to write the current settings before proceeding with the adjustment you can always cancel the adjustment if things get worse.

    Hello Vishal,

    Welcome to the Microsoft community. I appreciate your efforts to resolve the issue. I will certainly help you with the problem you are experiencing.

    If you purchased a computer with installed OEM Windows 8 on it, there could be a sticker on the Tower, or in the back (in the case of a laptop) with the product key to this topic. If there is no sticker, he can be preinstalled on your system BIOS.

    See the suggestions posted by Andre Da Costa replied on March 7, 2013.

    In addition to this, see:

    If the problem persists, you can contact the manufacturer of the hardware for the same thing and check.

    Hope this information was useful.

    I called HP support... told me that I needed their brand of recovery disks because the motherboard or BIOS would not allow me to install Windows 7 on new replacement HD disks without having their (HP).  So I ordered their... $17

    I had to send it back to HP.  It is a bad motherboard.  They dropped the price a bit to replace the motherboard.  I don't remember how much they charged me.   I'm guessing around $200 - $300

  • How to install Windows 7 on the new hard drive?

    I changed the old hard drive (500 GB) with a new hard dirve (1 Tera) and now I have two problems:-

    1. how to install Windows 7 on a new hard drive?

    2. my laptop came preinstalled Windows 7 Pro, but all the DVD kit (disk reclaimer Application & discs) + Revocer operating system, which has been provided (by Lenovo) for the laptop is in the Windows 8 Pro. So, how to install Windows 7 Pro, my laptop while all the DVD sets are in Windows 8 Pro?

    either way, this is my laptop spec (for reference); -

    I intend to install Windows 7 Pro on my new hard drive using another DVD of Windows 7 (not DVD provided by Lenovo), but how do all Leveno program located in the disk 'Application & recuperator readers' (by example; - Lenovo system health and Diagnostics, Lenovo Power Control, Lenovo Fingerprint Reader) to install this hard drive? (as I told you before, all the DVD kit is at or only for Windows 8 Pro)

    I hope someone will help me answer my question,
    Thank you

    I found the solution.

    Response to question 1; using a recovery & backup software to clone my current operating system, and then transfer them to my new hard drive.

    Response to question 2; Download all drivers and software (all the application that located on the DVD of the kit I have) on the official website of Lenovo.

    or another solution, send to a computer service shop and let the experts (workers) install it for me (the most simple and sure way).

  • transfer the copy of windows xp on a new hard drive

    My 6th sense tells me that my hard drive is about to fail.  I want to clone this HARD and then replace it with the new clone HARD drive.  Copying valid OEM xp (xp Home Edition, SP3) on my current HARD drive, failing will transfer without problems for the new HARD drive so that when I replaced the current HARD drive with the new and turn on the computer, it starts straight upward as usual?  Thank you.

    At the start of my hard drive makes strange noises, I used the program Norton Ghost 2003 disk cloning my XP Pro, SP3 hard disk. I used the switch of ib (boot image) when I did and when I started the cloned disk was not disabled. Windows found new hardware (the player) and after a little while that I should restart. I clicked the button to do it and everything was fine, then.

    Note: I bought the retail version of the Ghost of Norton program. It is not a free software.

  • 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.
