I have bought a new HDD to replace the old one on my HP Pavilion dv6. The recovery disk is booting and the Windows 7 instalation is initialised, but only while the old hard drive is inserted. The new, Toshiba 500GB (MQ01ABD050) is leading to the following error: The instruction at 0X800d030 reference memory at 0x0012ac60. The memory cannot be read.
What is wrong with the new hard drive? I formatted it numerous times, into various partitions. It is fully operational (works when connected via USB).
Hi mate does the recovery work only on the old hard drive? if it does the OEM keys only work on standard computer configuration anything changes it wont allow it to be activated however there's something containing inside your old hdd that the disk reads from hidden partition or something quite not sure it's a strange issue to occure.
