Now .. My Issue.
Hopefully this problem is easily fixed cause I have been searching in forum after forum
I was given a computer for my GF. It is a older computer SONY VAIO.
It had no hard drive IN the machine, he gave me one with it and said I could
install this drive and run a Windows install and should be to go!!!!
So I install the HD and got the Windows XP disc in the drive and I got the error...
DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND HIT ENTER...
now all the forums I have found state that you put the disc in and repair... But what happends if you do not have a OS installed and get this message?
I tried to format the drive by hooking it up as a SLAVE in my Vista system and was unable to read from it.... I used a different drive that I formatted and nothing.
I get a screen that shows IDE devices and then it goes to a screen that says
PRESS ANY KEY TO REBOOT
I have been at this for a week now.. Please? ANY help would be awesome.
BIOS is set up and I cannot update without a OS if I remember right
