Windows 7: Windows 7 Home Prem Recovery DVD, Where to find one.

Windows 7 Home Prem Recovery DVD, Where to find one.

Client Bought a New Lenovo Q150. Out of the Box it gets "No boot device detected" message. Lenovo overnights a new HDD. I go on site to swap out HDD's. Still no same message, Lenovo doesn't pre-image there HDD's. So i call them to ask what to do. I get told CX should of gotten a Recovery Disk. He didn't. There only option there willing to give is DEPO service 7-10 Business Days.

Is there anywhere I can inexpensively pick up a recovery DVD, and get this guy up and running. Everything I find are for recoveries, not clean installs.

Any help would be grateful.

This message is just as often a sign of a damaged boot manager as it is of a damaged harddrive.
Does the system bios see the drive?

Make sure Win7 HD is set first to boot in BIOS setup as well.

For installer easiest is to borrow any retail Win7 installer, if necessary you can extract the ISO using ImgBurn to unlock all versions using this tool and burn to DVD with ImgBurn at 4x speed: Unlock any version eicfg removal tool

If you need to download one, search Google for Official Win7 ISO downloads at My Digital Life to get a safe copy.

Then follow these steps to get a perfect OEM reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
