Windows XP was the latest Windows that came on CD. Later versions are on DVD. Might make a difference. It's an authentic Microsoft made disc that boots in other PC's?
Next try: boot from a USB you make with the MEDIA CREATION TOOL (google that or google DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10). Or any Windows 7 or 8.1 , whatever you have a license key for,
I recently bought a laptop at a sale and I guess it had data locker or some kind of encryption software on it. The guy said just reformat and reinstall windows. Well, I downloaded an emergency boot CD and supposedly wiped and reformatted the hard drive. I tried to put a windows boot installation CD and it will not boot up, only the emergency boot CD will boot up correctly. I guess to simplify things, what tool or app could I get to boot up, correctly reformat my hard drive and allow me to install a bootable windows installation?
