Recently I decided to completely reformat my outdated acer laptop computer.
Unfortunately, I can't install Windows on it independantly because i lost the external CD/DVD drive that came with it.
However, when i swapped hard drives with another acer laptop and installed XP onto it (the other one has a CD/DVD drive), it installed but it won't run in its original environment.
So how exactly can i install XP on my completely reformatted computer (ie. has no drivers or progs) so that i can get it to work in the original environment, without getting a new CD/DVD drive (anyway, they don't exist anymore, 'cause the laptop is too old, none on eBay either)
Incidently, I have the system restore CD/s for both laptops and an OEM Microsoft XP Pro CD.
