FOUND: Recovery Disks W7 64-bit for Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Mon Jun 25, 2018 4:39 pm

A client of mine has a crashed hard drive in a Compaq Presario CQ62-219WM, which has Slic2.1 in BIOS.

To get this machine going again, he needs Recovery Disks for Windows 7 64-bits.
He has a HP COA for W7 Home Premium and a HP COA for what looks like W7 Pro.

Does anybody have such disks, or .ISO downloads for it?

I'm assuming this was an OEM installation (if not, you can download what you need quite easily from Microsoft).

If they're OEM, you can still download the iso files from Microsoft's TechBench site, but they're a lot harder to find. I actually recommend using HeiDoc's download tool to make the whole process easier. Link here.

You can find a step-by-step guide on HowToGeek. Just scroll to the bottom of the page.

EDIT: Just learned that TechBench no longer appears to exist. HeiDoc's download tool still works, but I don't know their source with certainty--whether it's still direct from MS or a mirror of the old TechBench site. Something to check into if you decide to go this route.

Costs $27 but you are sure to get a legitimate installation:

A few years ago it was easy to get Windows 7 OEM media from Microsoft but that has not been true for a while and is problematic. We get lots of requests for this stuff on HP Forums where I volunteer my time and the link above is the way to go.

Good luck.

Thanks all.
Found all the M$ downloads here: https://ia601300.us.archive.org/30/items/digital_river/
and got Slic sorted.
