Hard drive crashed i have my windows 7 product key but no disk how to proceed

Hi
The Windows license keys on PC's & laptops from most major manufacturers are not usable on retail Windows as the Manufacturers restore CD/DVD are BIOS locked to motherboard/bios info eg DELL, Samsung, Toshiba, Acer etc

Is your hard disk actually dead or dying or Windows so corrupt you can not start up Windows

You maybe still able to boot to recovery partition and build recovery DVD set
(F12 on Dell)

Some recovery partitions are hidden others also have recovery Windows data on D:\
