Hi,

 

You can use your Recovery Discs/usb media to reinstall the OS on the new drive - if you haven't created this and your existing HDD still works, see the guide below to see if you can still create this.

 

Create Recovery Media - Windows 7.

 

If this isn't possible, you can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs using the link below.

 

Order HP Recovery Discs.

 

If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.

 

Regards,
