« on: July 31, 2010, 04:16:59 PM »
Alright here is my question. my old computer with no hard drive, if i put a new hard drive in it could i use my recovery disk to put windows on it. If it helps its a compaq. Also i once wiped the hard drive on it and still put it back on there so just wondering.

Is the recovery disk a real Windows installation disk (AKA - does it have the label), or is it a repackaging by HP/Compaq?
