I plan to replace my hard drive on my Satellite Pro M300-EZ1001X. I have made recovery CD from that before.
Can I use the recovery disc in my new hard drive like in original hard drive? Do I need to make a hidden partition like in original hard drive?

Changing the hard drive should have no affect on the function of the recovery disk. It will recreate the partitioning scheme the same as on the original hard drive. It will maintain the size of the first partition (Assuming this is a Win7 or Vista image, the first XP partition is the OS partition) and 3rd partition (Recovery partition). The OS partition will be the maximum size of the hard drive less the first and third partitions space.

running the recovery media on the new hdd will make it exactly the same as the original hdd was when it was new. if your original hdd still works and you want to keep all the data on it you can download the new acronis true image home 2011 and clone your old hdd to the new one.
