My sons lap top hard drive became frozen and I replaced the hard drive, but I dont have windows 8  the correct operating system for his lap top and need help on how I could get it back installed. I am using a temp windows 8 from  Microsoft but it is asking to replace it. How can I resolve this without buying it? Is there a way how to best resolve this issue?

Re: OS for lap top HP Pavilion g7 notebook

What is the complete product name or product  number of the notebook?

 

Take a look at the following HP document.

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00033108

 

HP Pavilion g7 notebook is too generic. It is the model series, not the specific notebook.

 

You will need the complete product name or product number to purchase a recovery flash drive from Computersurgeons.com.

HP no longer sells nor stocks the recovery media for the notebook.

 

The cost for the recovery media at Computersurgeons.com is quite low.
