Well, you have two options the way I see it.
#1: Go out and buy a copy of Windows
#2: Download a copy of Linux
I suppose you can buy downloadable copies of Windows now, so that's a variation on the first option open to you as well, if you don't have a problem burning an image to disc.
I'm trying to fix a laptop for a friend of mine. Between both of us, neither of us have any OS installation disks. It's a new hard drive with nothing on it and when I turn it on it just says enter the boot CD, press any key, etc.
I'm almost positive I need to install an operating system on this computer for it to be fixed. But without one, how do I fix it?
Thanks in advance.
