Changing Hard Disk

Hi!
I would like to change my Hard Drive but I don't have instalation disk for my Windows 7. I brought my computer 3 years ago and Windows was all ready installed and when I format my PC I don't need any Windows installation disk I got this recovery thing. So my question is what should I do so I can change my Hard disk and keep this Windows?

I'm not sure if is mentioned in the link I gave you, but it would be a good idea to download the drivers for your network and video cards before doing the W7 install. You might need them soon after the installation.

Do I need any drivers for my network if I use the one on motherboard?

W7 includes a lot of drivers, but sometimes supplies a generic driver, updates will get the right drivers after the install.

But if the network card does not work, you will need to download the driver on another computer if you don't get it beforehand.

Edit: you should get the chipset driver for your ASRock 970 Extreme 3 motherboard and install it before doing Windows updates.
