Hello everybody! I'm really confused as to what steps I should take with my current computer dilema. I have a laptop with a completely dead HDD. The thing that has me so confused is what to do about installing windows 7 on the new HDD. I purchased the laptop 2nd hand and I believe it is an OEM key that was placed on it. Considering the old HDD is dead I am unable to pull the old key off of it. I have another laptop which I can use, but it lacks many features I need and it is outdated. Can I utilize the 2nd laptops hdd in any fashion? Do I need to buy a new copy of windows? Would upgrading from 7 to 10 give me a new key which I could use the 2nd laptops hdd to install fresh in the 1st laptop? I really don't know where to go from here and any advice would greatly be apreciated!
