A friends PC suddenly started freezing. After using the recovery disks and getting PC back to factory reset it still did the same.
They took it for repair and they said it was a faulty hard drive and wanted to charge £80 for a new hard drive.
The faulty hard drive had a recovery partition whereby they could use recovery disks to get a working PC. As it has a genuine copy of windows XP home on it think its probably OEM. Is it possible to buy and install a new hard drive and somehow get the license from the faulty hard drive and onto the new hard drive.
