|Depends. It may be possible to recover data from the drive using some live cd tools maybe. |
Recovery media may be on the old drive.
Not sure it is the drive even. How did you test to prove that?
We can't blame HP if you lost or didn't make the recovery disks.
Could try a linux, bsd, haiku-os OS instead.
Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
