Andy, I bought a computer several years ago and it came with Win & Ultimate installed, and the MS Win 7 disk. Since then I had to replace the hard drive, and in trying to reload the machine realized that my original disk has a hairline crack and won't load. I took it back to RE-PC where I bought it, they referred me to Microsoft. I need some help.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer?

It was a RE-PC build, I can take a picture of the lable if that will help.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your computer?

I replaced the hard drive as the old one died. Nothing else has changed.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't believe so. Thanks
