I disabled the optical drive from Windows System folder because it was faulty and slowing down my computer.
However, now, a virus has stopped from starting Windows.
Since this configuration of Windows on the Hard Drive, can I replace the Hard Drive with a new one so it can:
A. Reset my configuration to allow a Windows Installation disk to boot up from the "newly installed" optical drive,
B. Erase any prior infected files I may have had on the previous Hard Drive.
The computer is a Dell Inspirion 2200 Notebook.
