A little reminder.
Any time you take something from Windows Old you are taking a chance of moving the infection from Windows Old to the fresh install.

Yeah that's the clicking noise its making, some times it does it and the boot error comes up and some times it doesn't and windows loads ok. I guess its on its way out?

I didn't make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks yet, do I make them from Samsung Recovery app?

Yes, before the HDD dies.

The Recovery media is still the inferior factory preinstalled Win7 with all of the bloatware and useless duplicate utilities that interfere with better versions built into Win7. Much better to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Thanks everyone for your help. So I've bought a new HDD and installed it. I then installed windows 7 from a CD that I had but when I enter the window 7 licence code it doesn't accept it. I was then going to install all the necessary Samsung drivers

So I'm thinking that I need to do the Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 gregrocker mentioned above or is there another way? Unfortunately I wasn't able to make any recovery disks from the dead HDD

There is only 1 windows sticker on the bottom of the computer which says:

Windows Home 7 Home Prem OA (Samsung Electronics) and then it has a Product Key

The Product Key on COA sticker will always work if the characters are inputted correctly and you used the same version, which would be Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1 English Official ISO download if you have 4gb or more RAM. Any less I'd choose 32 bit.

But it seems you haven't read Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 if you plan on importing a bunch of Samsung drivers before first doing all of your Important and Optional Windows Updates to see what drivers Win7 wants. Be sure to also enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) first.

I'm having real problems with booting from USB to install Win7 Home Premium x64. I followed all the instructions for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and watched the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZJ5i3eYgKA and set USB as the boot source but it doesn't boot to windows install it just goes to the other windows 7. Any suggestions please??

You made sure the ISO for your licensed version in Step 1 fully downloaded and wrote it to stick with the tool in Step 2?

Will the stick boot in another PC?

When you look at the BIOS boot menu with the stick plugged in, is it available to choose? You may need to expand a listing like HD, Removable or USB to see it.

If it's not shown and won't boot similarly in another PC, then start over with another stick, format it again and write to stick with UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive

I used UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive and that worked fine and windows installation started in the laptop but then it came up necessary drivers are missing but I used the full file X17-58997
