Firstly, I work in a small town in the North of NZ trying my best to get laptops up and running again when they stop working for a koha, or donation. No one has much money so I am looking for solutions that do not involve a cost.
I have been given a Samsung small notebook (I don't know model sorry) about 10 inch and cannot repair Windows 7 (Starter) from Windows installation disk as no operating system is found.
I have taken the HDD out and attached it to my laptop, it does not appear in file explorer. I have tried to recover partition(s) with Minitool Partition Wizard and it found partition but wants money to recover.
Does anyone know if there is a free solution that will fix the partitions?
If there isn't, is there a way to recover files without cost?
I also need a way to recover Windows product key from the disk as the sticker on the back of the laptop cannot be read, as the final solution will be to try and reinstall and verify Windows 7 starter.
