Then the fun begins: when I select the 2nd R . . . I get into a spot that requires and Administrator password. I am assuming that that password is what the article refers to as a CD-Code . . . I have a DVD and I cannot use the computer to read a code key nor can I download software to hunt for it . . . . I have a MacBook Pro but it does not have windows installed and I"m not sure I could acquire the key through the map . . . . I have the envelops that the DVDs came in (one is for drivers and software) but the numbers on the DVD and the numbers on the envelops do not match perfectly . . . I received DVDs w/ the computer and also bought one direct from HP . .. Would it be possible to run on the Mac the software to find key for the PC DVD . . . .
I got beyond the password block and found myself having to enter instructions for SERVICES rather than having it just run a repair . . .
AND when I tried just to install it found an OS and then when installing or creating folders it would run into some items it could not repair and weren't important and others that were blocks and folders to create that were essential and it could not do it . . .
I had checked the hardware previous to all of this.
