View Full Version : G75vw harddisk issues

12-24-2014, 12:05 AM
I have a g75vw with windows 7 that the hard drive went out on and just got a hp envy with Windows 8 but am locked out via password. I put the hard drive from the hp into the asus and it loads to the login screen fine but when I try to recover and install with my asus windows 7 disk it says theres no fixed drive found. It seems to reconize it in bios so is there something I could be doing wrong or is there a way to get past the windows 8 password?

Not sure is you can hack the password for the hard driver, get a new SSD and clean install win 7 or 8. I if that drive is password protected you would have e to hack the password that is not what we do in these forums.
