New Hard drive will not install Windows 7

Greetings:
I just installed a new hard drive for a HP Pavilion dvd5 Model 2132dx and I don't have the original system cd, but I have the 6 recovery cd (computer was bought from Best Buy). I placed the 1st recovery cd and chose the Factory Setting. I got this error 0x30epooe. What does that mean and is there away to get install windows 7.
Any help would be great.
Please note the new hard drive is WD 500GB.

Big thanks
damon

Hi Damon,

You would be better off installing froma Windows 7 ISO burnt to a DVD or written to a 4GB USB flash drive, and then activating it using the key on the COA sticker located underneath your laptop, or sometimes inside your laptop battery compartment. This tutorial will explain where to get the ISO, how to write it to DVD or USB, and how to boot from that to install Windows 7:

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Post back here if you need more help.

Regards,
Golden

I got the Windows 7 ISO on a DVD and tried to install it. But now it's asking for a driver. I went to the HP site and I have no ideal what driver I need. Any help would be great.
Many thanks for help so far

That usually indicates a corrupt DVD. You may have to burn it again, at a lower speed and/or with verification.

If I recall correctly, it is asking for the CD/DVD driver - which is strange.

Hello nomadwong, welcome to Seven Forums!


They're right, as suggested use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a DVD, at no greater than 4x speed with a verify.

ImgBurn Free ISO Burning Software

You can also write the ISO to flash stick using the same tool, after verifying that you completed the download in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

As stated this issue is almost always a bad installer.
