quick question might be a stupid one.

My brothers laptop stopped workin. i sent it for repair in at a local pc repair shop and was told it needed a new hardrive. The problem was that when he bought the Advent Modena M101 laptop, windows 7 home premium 32 bit was pre-installed. He didnt make a back up cd. How can he get windows 7 back on to his laptop, he has the product key.

Any help would be great.

thanks

Ask around first, the repair shop should be able to make you a copy of the installation disk.

Are you sure its illegal?

Any non-cracked windows iso you download will have the same content as the installation disk.

In fact your more likely to get an illegal copy if you download it as they tend to be cracked or modified copies.

This saves you a lot of hassle.
You just need to get a trusted download source for creating your installation disk for the new hard drive.

Hi :) 

In the UK its illegal to do that...its £5000 FINE if I sold a "copy" of a Windows disc to a customer...(with or without a number) so we dont do it obviously....

All the best Brett :)

its illegal for companies to distribute unlicensed copies.

but you can legally get a copy online as long as you have to activate it with your serial key


that hp link seems your best bet
