Exclamation HP Pavilion g6t-1c00 Installing new HDD

I need to replace the HDD because it has stopped working, I'm wondering if I need to have a recovery disk to do this. If so do I have to buy one from HP or can I somehow make my own recovery disk?

What OS / version?

If you didn't make recovery discs already, you can order them from HP. Or you can just use an OEM disc and install Windows that way, as well.

OEM is just an original Windows disc. No additional drivers, no additional HP software pre-installed.

You can get an OEM ISO from here:
Legal Download from DigitalRiver: Windows 7 SP1, 13 languages
And either burn it to a DVD or run it from a USB using Microsoft's USB tool.

Pick Home Premium 64bit. You can then use the key on the bottom of your laptop so that you can activate it.

So you can either do that, or you can just order the recovery discs from HP and have them sent to you.

I tried to take the screws off, and it wont come off, but it's loose and making clicking noise when I try to screw it off. Any ideas?
