I purchased a used laptop (Gateway solo 2500) and it came wiped out with no operating system.
I have been trying to install Windows XP from the laptop I am on now and am confused about a few things:
1. I have 3 disks that came with my good laptop - but none of them say that they are windows xp, here is the list: Microsoft setup and network utility v2.0, Microsoft Works, Restore Disc - only to be used with my Fujitsu... I have tried to install the first two - I can hear the computer read them when I put them in, but nothing happens.
I have tried rebooting with the discs in - nothing different happens. I have tried hitting the enter key with the disc in - nothing happens. I have tried typing in RUN or SETUP.... nothing happens.
I know I am a computer dummy - can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
