Hi,

 

If you have a set of Recovery Discs, you can quite happily use these to reinstall the operating system on the new Hard Drive.  The same is true if you have the installation disc and activation key for MS Office.

 

If you haven't got your set of Recovery Discs, you can order a replacement set using the link below - these are around $16 in the US.

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,
