Hi, my hard drive from my Acer Aspire M7721 , Winsdows 7 home prem OA crashed.
I do have the recovery DVD made when i bought the pc.
I have bought a same size hard drive and tried to use the recovery dvd's, but they do not start.
On a forum it was written that these dvd's need to use a partition on the old (dead) drive and that the only solution was to download a iso copy from digital river software. The installation went all right and key was accepted, but after 2 days this MS warning came that the key was not accepted for activation.
I went to the register process and had a talk with a operator who said it was not possible to use this key and the only solution was to buy a new product.
Is there ANY way i will be able to use my recovery disks to get my 'own' windows 7 back, and use they key which came with the PC?
I have as well a Ghost image which i made after all the updates were installed. (Hiren Boot 9.8). I tried to recover from the ghost image which just gave a error.
