I have a Dell 1545 that will not boot and diagnostics indicates the hard drive is faulty. As there were no OS discs that came with the system how can I restore windows once I buy a new hard drive? I do not have a back up disc as I got it from a friend. If I purchase a replacement hard drive from dell will they image the new drive for me or are they going to make be buy a new windows product key?
