Recently my Hard drive died and my Laptop just boots to the BIOS.
I can here a clicking sound so know it's the hard drive that's faulty and the BIOS says no hard drive is detected.
I have upgraded a hard drive before using cloning, but never had to replace a faulty hard drive that has completely died.
I have removed the old hard drive and ordered a new one, but how do I now recover the Laptop?
I have a recovery DVD or USB, when the new hard drive arrives can I simply put it in and then insert the recovery DVD or USB reboot and go from there installing the OS (Win 8.1) or do I need to create some sort of DVD / USB with Drivers for the new hard drive?
Any advice on replacing a dead hard drive and recovery of a Laptop back to the OS would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
