How can I get a disk to install in a new hard drive for a Dell computer with Windows 7 Home Prem

Dell will often sell the disks if you did not make a back up before your HD crashed.

I took my PC in for repairs and it came back with a new microsoft windows office student 2007 which is expired and I cannot use my PC. I have my own Windows XP Professional but will not load as it comes up...

Windows and Office are 2 separate products. Reinstalling Windows XP Professional will not get you Office. If you went out and bought Office Home and Student 2007, you should have the box still that has your key on the cardboard insert. Otherwise, you probably had the trial. You can reinstall the trial if you like for another 30-90 days, but I would recommend you go to a big box store (best buy, staples, etc) and buy Office Home and Student 2010 for about $125. That gets you Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you need Outlook for email, you need to get the Home and Business 2010 edition for a little bit more.

Where can i get a copy of the operating system for an acer aspire 4720z vista

Its normally stored on the hard drive of the PC in the recover partition of the hard disk drive.

If you've formatted the hard drive without burning a recovery disk, you can try contacting ACER via their web site and ask for assistance. You could buy a copy of Window Vista. But if you decided you need to buy a new operating system buy Windows 7 instead, its much better than Vista.

If however you don't want to buy an operating system and be legal. Then you can download and install one of the Linux based operating systems for free. I like Ubuntu best, but there are others.

Just google Linux or go straight for Ubuntu :-

Copy WIndows XP from one hard drive to another


Why are wanting to clone your hard drive to another on when all you need to do is install Windows 7 directly onto the new hard drive?
Are you wanting to save all your settings and data before you install Win 7 over the top of XP?

Two hard drives Vista and XP not booting

If you would like to start up in the xp ,At computer start up hit F1 or F2 there are so many ways some times its hold the del key ,once your into the BIOS you can change the boot order of your drives to make the drive xp is on load first .You will have to do this everytime or buy a program that will do it for you .I would just leave the power unpluged on one of the drives until you need it that way it will be safe from a virus or if you have a hard drive crash you always have one good drive .Hops this helps.

Pc game software won't download

I do believe that you have to run the Vistas compatibility test before downloading any programs. If it is a new game, does it say that it will run with Vista?
I had a couple of Dell and HP techs already tell me that if it was made before late 2007, it won't work. There went about $5,000 down the tubes. Oh yes, did I mention that I sent them a list of what programs I had and those I planned to use then asked for advice on the best system for my needs--this caveat went totally unread throughout the transaction with Dell, Every time something goes wrong with the system, the tech tells me that I should at least have some protection for my data-one for one thing and the secocnd as a fail safe. HMMMM--Well Dell, when I purchased the new system I upgraded the amount of Dell Data Safe; I also purchased two different external hard drives. One is only 80GB, and the other from them and still in warranty 500GB External HD didn't make the slightest bit of difference. The third external on here is a 250 GB External--Now what were you saying about playing it safe by using different options?

Mistake install

Hey, you can probably buy a windows 98se copy from ebay
or with some luck from a local pc shop / repair shop.

Microsoft stoped supporting windows 98 many years ago, and its no longer in production. So my guess is no.

Your best shot is to get it used.
