In another topic I explained that the hard drive in my G50-80 was failing the "targeted read" and "short drive self test" in both Seagate Sea Tools and Lenovo diagnostics. It crashed a couple of months ago and I performed the on-board recovery and reset which brought it back. It's still running but I'm going to replace the drive with a new one I just ordered from Amazon.
So, my question is when it arrives do I just take out the old and install the new drive (which looks pretty simple), plug in my USB recovery flash drive, turn it on and follow the prompts? I hope it's that easy!

Welcome to the Community Forums.
What Windows version would you have originally with the machine?
Steps on reinstalling windows in your new drive should be easy as you have described.
You may always update us here if ever there is a challenge in the process.
