For the use of the recovery disc, I recommend you contact the manufacturer of the computer because these discs are personalized computer manufacturers.

Hope this information was useful.

  • Acer recovery disks do not install Windows 7 on a new hard drive SSD

    Hi all!

    I have Ace Aspire 5742 G laptop and I have problems to install the Windows 7 operating system on my new hard drive SSD (I bought the SSD because the original hard drive is defect and do all the time... blue screens)

    For the factory restore, I use the restore disks. I burned the discs a few years back when the laptop has insisted me to do (using eRecovery or something, in total 3 dvds).

    Testing of computer to install the operating system with the DVD (asked to insert a dvd and then press a key). The real problem is that the installer will just in loops, restart and eventuallyfreezing in the end...

    Restart--> Acer--> Windows logo takes over... files-> from windows-> reboot-> etc.

    Which continued for more than an hour (on the first dvd!) and all of a sudden that it froze right on screen "starting windows..." I had to restart and stars on again once.

    I can still use my old formatted HARD drive, should I do the new set of recovery disks or use a USB?

    Thanks for the answers in advance!


    I was not able to edit my previous post, so I'll make a new...

    So I thought (with the help of Google) that the problem was that I had installed the new DDR3 memory game. When I changed them back to the original ones (2x2gb) everything worked smoothly.

    anyway. Thanks for the help!

  • H8 HP desktop computer - 1285D:-how to re - install Windows 8 on my new hard drive


    I got hard drive without warning for the month and I finally decided to change the hard drive. I added the new drive on the PC and reformatted it.

    I am currently using Windows 10 (update of Windows 8).

    I have the recovery CD that I created using Windows 8.

    My question is how to install windows 8 nine hard disk? I have to disconnect the old drive hard first and pop in the recovery CD?

    Thanks for the help


    Did you back up your data?

    The best scenario is to use the official media of external recovery HP and bring your PC to a first day factory condition. Remove the default HD and plug the new HD on this port. Now boot to the top of the HP recovery media and following the instructions on the screen.

    Thanks for posting on the forum.

  • Errors in the world when you try to reinstall Windows XP on a new hard drive.

    Original title: errors everywhere!

    Hi all:

    I recently bought a new hard drive (seagate momentus xt) for my older PC toshiba M70 laptop. I tried to re - install Win XP on the recovery disk (which came with the laptop) but I got a black screen with cursor. I repeated the collection, same thing. To check that all was well with the disc, I scanned and then installed ubuntu 9.04 it work perfect! What is interesting is that in the prior installation, he showed that win xp has been installed on the disk. Then I tried to re - install win xp - then I got this error Grub 17... I went back with the facilities and now I'm at a point where I get a message "error: unknown filesystem grub rescue >" (after the installation of ubuntu 11.04, then windows again). I don't know what to do. What I want is my xp back, I can't get ubuntu. Help, please.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi ARolle,

    ·         It is reinstall drive?

    Method 1: Load default BIOS (Basic Input\Output System) settings, and then restart the computer. Make sure that you have the CD drive set as first boot device. Check the settings by consulting the manual or call the manufacturer to do so.

    Note: Be careful when you change the BIOS settings. The BIOS interface is designed for advanced users, and it is possible to change a setting that can prevent your computer from starting properly.

    Method 2: Try to boot from the CD and see if you can start the installation.

    Contact Toshiba to get more information on the type of disc you use to reinstall Windows.

  • I can install Windows 7 on a new hard drive for HP Envy m6 1205dx

    My HP Envy m6-1205dx son is a notebook of 2013. The screen was broken and I replaced one. Now he says that there is not a BONE, I tried to install a full version of Windows 7 Professional, and he said that he there was not a boot device. I've reconfigured the BIOS to boot with the CD/DVD ROM and it started installing. When he arrives at the point of asking where to put the installation there is no option. I checked the connection to the hard drive and it is not a problem here. I think to buy a new hard drive to install the Windows 7 operating system, I am afraid that it will not work or he will say that I need to install the drivers. This laptop originally supplied with Windows 8. Can I install this version of Windows on this laptop? If I need to install the drivers how can I get them? It cannot be a website to download the drivers on your computer. I can't do without the computer having an operating system. I downloaded some drivers from a link, I saw on You Tube and put it on a flash drive, but none was consistent, one of them did read on a different/more older computer I tried to install this OS on and it says that the driver was out of date. It seems to me that a (FULL VERSION) drivers and everything else you might need. I'm not computer savvy, so I do not know! I'm just trying to save my investment of $600 on this computer without spending $300. I can get a new hard drive for $80 and it was on that I would go; However, I will buy a new Windows 8 operating system if it is the only option.

    There is no device driver Windows 7 for your model, only Windows 8:

    If there is no driver, your PC may not work correctly (No. LAN or WiFi, Audio, USB, etc.) after the installation of Windows 7.

    Check your hard drive, if the laptop has been abandoned the drive may be defective and must be replaced.

    You can order a support of HP recovery:

    Hard drive crashed and HP sent a new with recovery discs that say they will reinstall windows 7. Discs and installed hard drive run for 'restore factory settings' by following the instructions. Takes about an hour and all 4 disks are asking but then becomes at the end and left with white screen saying "no operating system installed."  Left on for a period simply show this message in case something happening in the background, but nothing happens.

    2 extra drives came with set, but they simply refer to the instructions that make no mention of them.

    Download and create the bootable CD as described at the link below.

    When you created this CD, insert it into the system that fails to start, restart, and wait until you see a window with a green check mark.  Next, remove the CD and insert your first recovery DVDs.  Reboot the PC and go through the process of installing the operating system again.  If all goes well, it should install properly this time.

    You get the error message?

    Method 1: I suggest you to run the hardware and devices troubleshooter.

    Open the hardware and devices Troubleshooter

    Method 2: I suggest you to check if the drives are displayed in disk management. If the drive is available in disk management, and then assign the drive letter.

    1. Sign in as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click performance and Maintenance.
    3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click computer management, and then click disk management in the left pane.
    4. Right click on the drive, the partition, the logical drive or volume that you want to assign a drive letter to and then click change drive letter and paths.
    5. Click change.
    6. Click assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK.
    7. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change.

    The letter of the drive, partition, or volume that you specified is changed, and the new drive letter is displayed in the appropriate drive, partition, or volume in the disk management tool.

  • Install Windows 7 on a new hard drive

    Hi all

    Old story, my hard drive is down so I bought a new disk of 1 TB of Seagate which is totally clean.  I tried to install Windows 7 Pro, but without a formatted drive any Windows can not find the new drive.  I need to install Windows 7 for software compatibility and server.

    I had ideas.

    I thought I might be able to install the hard drive on my computer at home and shaped in this way, no dice, that mount the new drive without spare cords.

    How to create a bootable CD on my computer at home and use there - not sure - Windows 7 Home.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Best Rgds,

    Dave R.

    When boot you the disk to Setup and windows loads, it says files using SHIFT + F10 to enter in the command line

    Then use this to use a part of drive to clean up and format the drive

    Press ENTER after each command

    List disk
    Select the disk n (where n is the number that has been given to your HARD drive in the list disk)
    Create partition primary align = 1024
    Format fs = ntfs quick
    Assets (assuming you want to install an operating system)


    You have just erased everything on the disk and are ready to install windows.

    If you encounter an error using


    List of Volume

    Select volume 1...

    Deleting a Volume

    Repeat for the other volumes

    Then proceed to
    List disk
    Select the disk n (where n is the number that has been given to your HARD drive in the list disk)


    Format fs = ntfs quick
    Assets (assuming you want to install an operating system)

    The recovery set supplied with the computer should find the default computer.  Probably will not even need to enter the key.

    Don't forget to patch (probably manually) with SP1 and SP2 after you're done.  Then download the updates (MUCH) released after that.

  • Impossible to reinstall Windows 7 on a new hard drive

    First off apologies if this has been answered recently, I spent the 2 days on this problem and the promise that I searched and google til my fingers bleed. Basically, the situation is as follows:

    -The PC tells me HDD is faulty on my Studio XPS 8000

    -J' I buy the new HDD, then get out of the old and install new

    -Position the disc of the PC operating system, get up to where I can click on install to start the installation of Windows 7 on the new drive

    -However he says there is no device driver on the disk, I put in the drivers and Utilities disc, (which came with the PC) but still no driver of the device, even if it says disk they appear thereon

    -Back to the old drive and try to make the system recovery disk - try to use USB flash drive but is not recognized, so buy dvdr discs and go through initialization and then it begins to collect files, but on many tests is not go beyond 25% full, let alone engraving on the startup disk.

    -Dell Datasafe Local Backup to uninstall and reinstall but the continuous PC to freeze at "25% collection files.

    So, what can I do, because my warranty is over? All I have to do is install my copy already purchased WIndows 7 on my new hard drive already bought, but I'm stumped at this point. Thanks for any help of cutting-edge :)

    Oh... PS. -I am in England so I don't think I can send away from the backup disks, even if the expiry of the guarantee is not a problem.

    Follow the Windows reinstallation Guide / A clean installation of Windows 7:

    The part you get stuck on is step 6, preparation of step 8 and SATA drivers loaded during the installation of Windows.

    Note that I recommend using a .iso of Digital River, which will be the installation of more up-to-date media and the use of Activation and recovery of backup for the activation of the product. Follow the step 2 (using the files at the bottom) and stage 11 b for activation of the product. It is an unofficial solution but works very well.

    You can of course try to call Support technique Dell and request a Dell Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 DVD of resettlement.

  • How can I backup all my personal stuff to install my system on a new hard drive without losing all my saved information and contacts?

    backup what option allows me to record the information of e-mail, my files and folders, settings of the computer basically everything but the system itself.

    I have a full factory CD/CD that includes an image of windows vista (hp system recovery discs) but that does not include my email info or the files and folders to restore
