If the notebook did not come with the recovery DVD's, there was, no doubt, a hidden recovery partition on the old hard drive. If you replaced the original hard drive, that recovery partition is gone.
You could attempt to contact Packard-Bell for replacement recovery media (DVDs). Note that I could not find any US support site; however, here is one in the UK: http://www.packardbell.co.uk/pb/en/GB/content/contacts
. You might also contact whomever you purchased the notebook from. The Easynote Tmo1
has a one year "carry in" warranty. Packard-Bell was purchased by Acer several years ago.
If all else fails, you could purchase a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Any drivers not included in the Windows 7 DVD can be downloaded from this Packard-Bell site: http://il.packardbell.com/pb/en/IL/content/download
- Select Notebook, EasyNote, EN TM01 (or just enter the computer S/N)
- Note: all drivers are for the x64 platform.
