Solved!

restore windows from recovery with new hard disk

HP Recommended
pavillon 500
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

my hard disk failed and crashed 2 weeks ago... i wasn't able to restore anything but the recovery partition, i was able to copy those files on a bootable usb flashdrive... I installed a new HD and when i boot from my usb drive, recovery do not work because it sais that the hardware changed... which is normal since the old one crashed...

 

how am i suppose to reinstall windows if my recovery boot software doesn't wnat to because of the new drive??? i understand that it detect that it changed but i can't go on to reinstall windows and when i bought my pc several years ago, i didn't get any product key or cd....

 

is there a way to bypass the hardware changes detection to at least just reinstall windows??
