  1. Installing new ssd drive in a friend's HP laptop..she doesn't have key


    She doesn't have the box and what documentation she kept, there's doesn't appear to be a key listed/included. Furthermore, there is no sticker on the laptop. What is going to happen when I reinstall Windows on this new SSD? Will it ask for the key or recognize the laptop somehow?

    :)

    Upgrading HP SSD drive on HP 750-524

    I purchased an HP Envy tower with a 128Gb SSD which is where Windows is installed, I have purchased a new 1TB SSD drive that I would like to replace the 128 GB drive with. My machine did not come with the Windows 10 Media, what steps do I need to take before
    I install the new drive and install windows.

    • Where do I get the Windows 10 install
    • What steps are needed to create an Install disk
    • Do I have to deactivate my old install before removing the old drive.
    Please let me know if there are any other considerations.

    Best Regards,

    Wes

  3. Can´t Access Windows 10 Instalation Media from Startup

    Laptop: hp 15-b104sp

    SSD: Kingston SSDNow UV400

    My HDD seemed to be corrupt. Although I´ve managed through MS-DOS to copy the files I wanted to a USB Drive, I couldn´t access Windows nor any of the repair/recover options on UEFI.

    So, I´ve formatted it (through MS-DOS) and I bought and installed a new SSD drive in my PC (checked the compatibility), and created a USB Drive with Windows 10 Installation Media.

    When I boot the laptop, it doesn´t recognize this USD Drive.

    After trying this, I´ve created a boot drive with Windows XP and I can access the installation, but when it asks to choose the drive to install on, it only has the option for the USB drive that contains the boot. It doesn´t recognize the SSD.

    What else can I try to install Windows (any version) on my laptop?

    Installing new ssd drive in a friend's HP laptop..she doesn't have key

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?
