    My Hard Disk has a/some bad sector/sectors, and the audio service stopped working. The PC technician installed a new Hard Disk of the same size (500Mby) and made a copy of the old one contents. Of course the new HD is in the first location and the old in the second.
    Now I can bootstrap in the new HD or in the old HD (using F10).

    Question 1- If I load via the old HD, and request a Windows 7 repair, the repair will be made only in the old HD, without interfering in the new HD? There is some routine to be followed?

    Question 2- in the old HD I have installed the 2016 Office, whose installation was made through a one time online allowance. There is any way I can run the 2016 Office from the new HD? (I have only the Office 2007 disk, which at present is installed at the new HD)

    I am unsure what this is
    There is no such capacity MB is megabytes and for example 1000MB is 1GB
    and if you do mean 500MB you could not even install Windows 7 on it.
