How do i set up computer afer installing a new hard drive
My Hard drive crashed and I had to buy a new one. Problem is that I don't have the OS disk for windows 7, it was already on the computer when I got the computer. Now I really am stuck. The computer is a Dell Vostro 3700. The hard dive is the same as the old one. 500 GB, 7200 RPM.
You were supposed to create restore disks when it asked you to at setup. If you did not you can either order.them from Dell.
Or download the version of 7 matching.your license from here
Burn to a DVD or use the USB tool here
Then install using your license key. You will have to download the drivers from Dell support and install them after.windows installs. You may have to use a USB key if the network driver is not working after windows installs
