I recently had a hard drive fail. A friend gave me a hard drive that is workable but needs to be reformatted. I installed the hard drive myself (thank you YouTube) but can't get past this error message.I have the system disk but the computer won't get past this error.
Can anyone help?
The message reads:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your windows installation disk and restart the computer.
2. Choose your language settings and then click next.
3. Click repair your computer.
If you do not have the disk contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
