Well today i woke up to find my computer was "Missing Operating system ..."
Its an hp prebuilt(dont have any specs on hand if they are needed, at least ones that i can find), i never made recovery disks (yeah i'm stupid). I figure I'm gonna have to buy a new OS, but i wouldnt know where to go from there.
Is there no chance of recovering any of my files(music, movies, pictures, etc)?
Would i have to wipe my hd? if so how(I'm not techy thats why I am posting)?
What kind of problems should i expect to run into, with stuff like drivers for my hardware?
And finally and probably most important, which OS? i'd prefer windows since all the software i have gotten till now is for it, and once again i'm not techy so linux probably isnt for me. So its more like XP(previous OS) or Vista?
