I have only one more question. How are you suppose to do this if you can't get windows to load? I have tried to go in to f8 mode and it want let me go in because of the initial problem i can get in to the options mode and advance but i am lost from there. Also I have made a copy of what the Microsoft guide help but don't know how to use because I can't get into the computer. Please can some one give a go ahead on what to do please. I really would appreciate it. Thanks very Much.
