So heres the story,
One day i got avast the antivirus to whom seemed a good idea to mess with the boot files....so next boot BANG --- "Operating System not found"
The laptop is old, the cd doesnt work and also the hp freaking dowsnt want to boot from usb.
I also have an new Dell computer which have 2 hdd slots .However i dopnt get it how to put it in since the hdd thingy is too small for the thingie.The other hd looks exactly the same but its covered with a metal thingie to keep it there and i dont get it how to get rid of it -.- since it look stuck there.


Does anyone know other ways how to get rid of "Operating System Not Found" without cd?

If not , Are all HDD compatible with any pc?
(im planing to use my xp cd to install the os in the hdd...)

Does anyone how to make hp boot from usb?? (i get 'Boot Error' while using Netbootin to install ubuntu)

Any os that can b e installed from usb and works on hp??????


Thx in advance guys:d ^^
