My problem is with a Dell 1555 laptop that has a defective HD & I have ordered a new one. I do NOT have a backup of the HD but I do have all of the legal SW product keys for WIN 7 PRO 64 bit and OFFICE 2010 stored on another PC. I need the steps to make this replacement HD work but I don't know how to get started. I would appreciate if someone can point me in the right direction to get this PC fixed for my grandson. I also don't have a rescue type CD to get the PC up far enough to load anything. I also have a large external HD that I could load with the WIN 7 PRO 64 bit but how do I get it and then transfer this SW to the new HD.
Thanks for all of your help as I really appreciate it.
