Hey Bro! Great to see you!!
My gosh man, you are a miracle worker. My God, you are cool. You just gave me an idea that is so amazing.
Both my computers were down for the count, had no OS's, and nothing could be installed on them, nor recovery CD's would help.
You may only have a meager 40 posts, and some people think if you have a lot of posts, that your knowledge or good or something, but you have given me an idea better than people with 10,000 posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because of your idea, I have been able to fix one of my computers. [Now why didn't I think of that before. Thanks for your response bro!!!] But not fully, but this does not matter at the moment, as I have many more options open to me know. Now I have a much better chance of fixing them completely.
Laptop #1 [C#1]: Deleted Partition. Unallocated Space. No Partition Table.
Laptop #2 [C#2]: Formatted hd. No OS will install. No CD will run. Except DOS 7.1
I installed DOS 7.1, but do not know how to configure it correctly on the options that you select during the install process, and so I could not get it to run, or a Dos Prompt upon reboot.
Do you know how to configure Dos 7.1 so that it will run? And get a Dos Prompt?
I switched the C#2's hd into C#1 and it installed Windows without any problems. I have also ran a check disk on the hd and have returned with no errors or bad sectors. So the hd appears to function fine.
And by the way, if I didn't thank you, I just want to say --
Thank you very much!!!
What now, any ideas?
