So I am trying to start up from a XP Professional installation disk and the computer keeps asking me to insert the Restore Plus CD! that came with the computer. I asked my friend about this and he was surprised. Since he only works in the London offices during network setup I am wondering if this is some sort of hardrive protection that only exists in Europe. Anyway I am wondering if there is any way to get around this other than having the original restore plus! cd.
Call me crazy but it seems a bit to me like inheriting a car and the car manufacurer only allowing you to use gasoline from one company. I mean what if they wanted to install linux or something. You may be at a gas station, you may need gas, but since this is a Shell station you are stuffed as your car only takes Amoco gasoline.
Anyway sorry about the rant. Here is what it says from the system boot disk screen:
Your operating System CD was originally shipped as part of a Restore Plus! kit, for validation purpose, please remove the operating system CD, insert the Restore Plus! CD and press enter.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you thank you thank you.
