How To Restore Original Windows In Sony Vaio To Newly Replaced HDD ?

Hello Everone,
I'm new here and this is my first post.
I have a Sony Vaio VPCCB45FN Green laptop. Bought in 2012. My 640 GB inbuilt HDD got crashed. I replaced it with the same make TOSHIBA ( SATA, 5400 RPM) 1TB HDD. Now, i want to restore my WIN 7 HP x64 to this new HDD. Please help me out to successfully restore the Windows to new HDD.
Thank You
Siddhartha

Hi Siddhartha.

Do you have a System Image? A Backup image of the old HDD?

If you don't have a backup image, and you didn't create manufacturer backup discs, and you do have a readable COA sticker

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

You could also contact Sony to see if they can get you the "factory recovery media"...they may charge for it ?

Yes, i've created recovery disks and i even have image of my recovery partition from old(Died) HDD. In fact, i have already restored my laptop many times but time my HDD was in good condition. Now, i've replaced the HDD.

I don't know if an image of the recovery partition can be used (it may be corrupt).
You could wait for someone more experienced to help with that.

Can you boot from the recovery discs you created and restore the system to the new HD using those ?

Try these steps:

1. Boot into the repair disc / Windows installation disc
2. Select "Repair your computer"
3. Connect the disk which contains the backups.
4. Choose the recommended system image or choose a different one if you wish.
5. On the next page select the time period of the image you want to restore to. Click Next.
6. Now choose "Format and repartition disks".
Go ahead and complete the wizard.

It is a good thing that you have a bigger HDD now, because if you would have a smaller one, restore would be hard to do.
