I thought so but some folks seem to think that win7 is diff than other OS in that it has a built in boot logic that will automatically reload in all that info into the new HD.
In win 7 the motherboard contains all OS info.
Maybe the new HD has pre-installed win7?
You could run Linux for free.
You could run Linux for free. I recommend Linux Mint. Load it onto a usb drive. You may have to log into the bios to enable booting from the usb. When you first boot up, don't install. You can just run Linux Mint from the usb drive. Try to mount the C: drive. Save any files you need. Once you have everything backed up, install Linux Mint onto your harddrive.
