Safe Mode won't even work.
I'm trying to find the cheapest way to replace the hard drive in an old Dell laptop. The laptop was purchased used, so we do not have any disks that may have allowed us to install the operating system onto a new hard drive.
My question is, can we possibly purchase a used hard drive that already has the operating system installed and be OK, or will we likely run into issues? Anything I may need to know before going this route?
If this is not an option, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
**Edit** The person who owns this laptop informed me that they purchased it new, but can't seem to locate any disks that may have come with the laptop.
