The reason I bought Windows 7 is because my hard drive had to be replaced. I did not have any problems with the install or adding new programs.

No you shouldn't have any issues with the install. I replaced my hard drive on my laptop and used this operating system to install; just make sure your computer is either a 32bit or 64bit system (motherboard)

I would need to know what kind of motherboard. Windows 7 really hated my Intel board for some reason. I have resolved all of the issues except one lol. It refused to see my network card which was built into the board. They said I had the latest driver. I dug a little deeper and found out this was not true and downloaded another driver problem solved. I have seen this same issue on three other laptops that I have fixed. Windows 7 also didn't like how I had my memory put in. I kept crashing over and over again. Moved the 4gig memory to another slot and problem solved. Internet explorer still crashes after 30 secs though. I switched to Google chrome and it has yet to crash on me. I have not had an issue in 30 days and am a happy camper. It does take twice the time to boot up than XP use to. If you have any issues with it email me and I will do my best to help you. Myrealtorlarry@yahoo.com. good luck!

there should be no problems installing this to a new hard drive cause this version of windows 7 is the full version and not the upgrade

you should have no problems installing it on the new hard drive as long as it's on the same PC

yes the product key goes by the bios so if you acquire a new motherboard it will not work but since you're only buying a new hard drive it will work
