does the recovery media have the operating system (windows 7 home premium 64 bit) in it or does it have to be bought separately? my hard drive just completely died and id hate to spend a fortune on a new operating system and hard drive if the recovery media doesnt have W7 64 on it...

what happened is that the drive entirely died, so i have no access to any of my stored (and hopefully safe) files, including that hidden partition. if the recovery dvds do in fact have the windows 7 OS, that saves me about $100 from having to buy the win 7 home prem OS from online sellers and can get my laptop back to original from using an 80 gb with vista as a backup. would it be recommended to look into SSDHDD's over traditional mechanical? as seeing how i would hate to have another drive die on me as this one has (not even 2 years old).

What makes you believe the files are safe? If the drive is really dead, your files are too. It can be very expensive to rescue files from a dead drive. We're talking at least hundreds of dollars.
If the problem is simply that you cannot boot Windows, then it's not hard to rescue files.
