  • New hard drive to replace broken one. Need to re install Windows 10



    I've just received a new hard drive to replace my old one of 7 years. I replaced everything correctly, put all the cables back in the same places but whenever I try to boot my pc it says "please reboot and choose a bootable media or insert boot media and press any key". I'm really confused as I made a bootable media using the media creation tool on my USB on my old hard drive. I'm not sure on the specifics of my hardware or if I'm posting this in the wrong sub but my help is much appreciated.


    Thanks guys

    If you are installing a new hard drive, and the old one still functions, then clone the old one to the new one.
    Otherwise restore from your backups.
    Otherwise reinstall windows from scratch using Windows media.
