    Hello,

    one of my friends has an Hp computer he bought with Windows 7 starter edition, however the HDD failed, recovery is impossible.
    Do you think if I remplace with a new one, there will be an hardware block by the motherboard as it is an OEM product?
    I mean how to acces the new HDD if there is some protection coming from the mobo ?

    Thx

    AFAIK, only old IBM/Lenovo imposed HDD related whitelists.
