Using a Windows 7 repair disc on a PC was created by another PC.
I have 2 laptops. One, a Sony Vaio has a working Windows 7 home premium OA 64 bit. And another Toshiba Satellite that HAD Windows 7 home premium OA 64 bit. The hard drive in the Toshiba went fubar and is unrecoverable. None of the sectors are readable except the partition table and SMART says that drive failure is imminent.
I installed a new blank hard drive in the toshiba.
Can I use my Vaio Windows 7 to get this Toshiba Windows 7 working somehow? I created a repair disc on my Vaio but I don't know what to do next for the Toshiba. No the Toshiba does not have any backup recovery disks made from it but I can make whatever discs with my Sony Vaio.
How do I fix this? I have not done system recovery on windows since the old NT days. It looks like MS made this harder than it was. All I had to do was use my install disc.

Very doubtful. The repair disk is loaded with drivers specific to the hardware on the computer where it was created. Even different laptops from within the same brand will likely not have repair disks that can be shared.
In any case, a repair disk in this instance won't be useful. You have a brand new hard drive with no operating system, not an existing operating system that needs repair. I take it you've never made a full backup of your system? If you did, you could restore that. Otherwise, you should install the operating system fresh and then go through the process of installing all of your previous software again.
