Dead hard drive

Pavilion 6380T
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My hard drive will not boot so I'm installing a new hard drive. How can I install OS and software as I had in the old one?

Hi:

 

HP no longer sells W7 recovery media for your PC.

 

You can still order recovery media from this non-HP vendor at the link below...

 

http://www.computersurgeons.com/p-22624-windows-7-64-bit-recovery-kit-576691-zh5-for-hp-pavilion-des...

 

If you can still read all 25 characters of the W7 product key on your PC's case, you can save $30+ bucks and make your own W7 installation media.

 

Click on the Windows ISO Downloader.exe link below to download the tool to create the W7 ISO file download.

This link downloads a file that accesses the Microsoft Techbench W7 ISO files and generates the ISO file download you need.

https://www.heidoc.net/php/Windows-ISO-Downloader.exe

Select the Windows COEM ISO file download for the version of W7 the product key is good for.

I have zipped up and attached the Microsoft utility below, that will allow you to either put the file on a USB flash drive or DVD, or you can use a different free utility such as Rufus.

Then you can install the drivers and available software from the PC's support page...
