Question

I downloaded my version of Windows 7 from the Microsoft store, but my hard drive is failing and I need to replace it with a new one, which has Vista. How do I retrieve my version of Windows 7 to install on to the new hard drive?

Hi how did you install it as it comes as a iso file so needs to be burnt to a disc prior to install,if you still have the disc your problem is solved if you have the iso file on the drive try to copy it to a disc,or you can try these https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&sou...up39wXbVzwduJQ https://www.ubuntugeek.com/recover-da...-dd_rhelp.html
