So I'm trying to clean up my buddy's sisters laptop. He said it was getting blue screen within minutes. I never played around on it, I just put in my windows 7 disc and began trying to wipe it and install a new windows 7.
I tried wiping and formatting the hard drive and throwing windows on there but I think I messed up somewhere. Whether I formated it wrong it was something else, I'm not sure but it wouldn't install windows. When I try to install windows it says it cannot install required files. Make sure all files are available etc. Error code 0x8007045D
When I boot the laptop it says bootmgr is missing. So I think the hard drive needs to be formatted properly and windows 7 installed. How do I go about doing this? I'm guessing I need to open cmd prompt in the I'm windows installation screen and format it through commands.
Can somebody help me out with this?
