hard drive crashed on my hp pavillion laptop, how do i reinstall windows

I got a new drive but now I need to install windows on it... I have the product key on the bottom of the laptop but where do I get the media? I had windows vista 64bit. The old drive is dead...

Hi,

 

You can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs from HP on the link below - I believe there is a delivery charge for this.

 

HP Recovery Discs

 

If you have any problem with the above link, order them directly from HP Here.

 

Regards,

Did you perhaps burn a Recovery Disk set when first setting up the laptop and put them away?
