I was given a near pristine Windows HP Tower. It has 4 gigs of Ram and decent hard drive that I had in storage. I used it to store data on it but does not have a operating system.. It is 160 gigs so I know it is not a large drive but will serve my purpose.
The tower had Windows Vista on it and the hard drive was not readable. I replaced the drive with mine and want to use a installation disc for Windows 8.1. I do have the key code and I think this should make a decent tower for my granddaughter.
After placing my drive in the HP tower, I tried to install Windows 8.1. Something clattered inside the tower so there is some kind of problem. Once I began to install 8.1 it asked for my key code and was accepted.
A screen came up that said "No signed Device Drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media has the correct divers and then continue.
I can't seem to find an answer on how to make this work. Please let me know what steps I need to make so that I may install Windows 8.1 on this machine.
Many thanks for all of your assistance.
