I posted a separate thread about my son's laptop (hard drive problem). The hard drive (with Vista in it) is not working, and is permanently damaged (we tried to extract the data by putting the hd into an external enclosure, but while other hd's work in this enclosure, this hd does not respond at all, so it's in the trash now). My question is, if I buy a brand new hard drive and buy a fresh Windows 7 disk, would the machine take Win7? If yes, which version (upgrade, full version, etc.) of Win7 should I get?
Here are the specs of the laptop: - Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916 - 4GB RAM (DDR2, I think) - Vista - No hard drive at this point, it came with a 320gig hd
