@Joshua_Nuñez, thank you for your reply, I'll be more than glad to help you.

 

I understand that you wanted to know if you need to purchase the recovery cd as you already have one.

 

If you have the recovery cd then you can use th same one.

 

For replacing the hard drive please follow the link mentioned in the previous interaction.

 

I hope you have a good day ahead.
