I have a hp pavilion g7 and my hard drive crashed so i had to get a new one. When i got my laptop it had windows 8 installed on it. Now i have installed windows 7 on it and i dont know how to activate it..? Do I have to install windows 8 instead? If I do how do I get it activated?
Your drive died.You failed to create the Factory Reset DVD, like it prompted you to do when the system was new.You put in a new driveInstalled Win 7 (from where?)You need to either purchase a valid, legal Win 7 license (or whatever other OS you want…8.1 or 10), or obtain the Factory Reset DVD from HP.
