The hard drive was erased and formatted over, the computer started acting up on me....i kept getting the blue screen of death, then it wouldn't even boot up, kept giving me the error message that my startup file was missing. A buddy reformatted the hard drive and tried to install the OS again for me, but couldn't figure out a way to do it given the situation with no cd drive or boot from usb.
I tried the external cd drive idea, but no luck.
I will try the network idea today. I have to make a network first, as I do not have one right now. Does it have to be a hard wired network or will a wireless one work? How do I get the bad computer on the network? I might need some help on how to do this as well if i cant get it figured out.
