"sanitized the hard drive"

What does that mean?

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

As long as theres no phisical damage to the hard drive or shock to it windows can be reinstalled on it. If you threw it donw the stairs then the hard drive might have shock damage from vibration.
