Hello! My Mini 210's HD seems to have failed...if I install a new HD, is it possible to receive from HP a Windows 7 Starter OS to re-install? Or, perhaps (?), is there a way to re-install the Win 7 Starter OS once I go online with the new HD, or...what else may I do, to install a new HD, and carry on?! THANKS! Michael.
Chimney_83: Thanks for your kind asistance...I appreciate it! So: my old 210 Mini managed to get to the "Startup Repair / Repairing Disk Errors" Screen---where it's been for several hours, the blue bar scooting back and forth...with ( alas!) no results...
My guess is that the HD is beyond help...I plan to install a new HD /SSD...I DO have a Recovery USB...my newQuestion: once I've installed the new drive, how may I install the Recovery USB's information on it?
Once again: thanks for your help...with a bit of luck ( and a few $$ ), the 210 will be back and running soon...! Michael
