Hi,
hard drive failing on laptop, so replaced the hdd and now trying to install Windows 7 home premium
Every time I try installing Windows it fails using my legit copy.
It's saying the hardware is not comparable and also tried 2 other Window disks that also fail
Do I need a different disc for this model?

Yeah, probably throwing out if you're installing a 64bit os on a 32bit computer or trying to upgrade a 32bit OS to 64bit.

If you can do a full format on the new hdd first.

Just stick Linux mint. You will be up and running in a hour.
