Hello forum users!
This is my first post, so pleas excuse me if I make any mistakes.
I have an Acer Ultrabook S3 which I only got at Christmas.
Last week while at work it suddenly wouldn't power up and when I got home I got a disk error message.
The disk error message simply said that I had a disk error and to press CTRL - ALT - DEL to restart.
I decided that as the message mentioned nothing about data that I would simply reinstall windows. So I downloaded Windows 8 (don't kill me) and put it onto a USB.
I changed the boot up settings through the bios to boot from USB and formatted the HDD so that it didn't create a Windows.old folder.
Now during install the installation gets stuck on copying windows files, it doesn't even get past 0%.
Is this down to a dead HDD or something else?
Any advice / guidance would be grateful!
Thanks a lot
