going to take laptop to get new hard drive installed and I don't have Windows 7 or any operating system on a cd with the key, instead what I have is 2 discs called System Recovery DVD, Windows 7 Recovery Media for Windows 7 Products, it says that installing this disc will return your computer's hard drive to its original software configuration. I asked them if this is all they need to install Windows 7 to the new hard drive and they said yes. Does this mean these 2 disks are Windows 7???

There's no need for a new thread every time you have a question relating to your hard drive replacement, use your original thread.
Changing Hardrive and Installing it

If those are the disks that shipped with your laptop, and your laptop had Windows 7 on it, then they will reload Windows 7. If they already told you that's what they need then why are you on here asking if that's what you need?

If you made the disks yourself....well, good luck with that. If they are factory, as long as they look undamaged....they will PROBABLY work.
