A friend of mine gave me an old laptop that has a corrupted XP on it. It boots up but just prior to the desktop appearing a warning message appears stating "Windows cannot find \OEM\bin\WatchDriversSigningPolicy.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.". There is no way of clicking the message off as there is no mouse/cursor.
Because it ran so slow when XP did work he gave it to me to put another OS on it, either 98 or ME. However the disk won't autorun and I can't get into the BIOS to alter the settings because it has a password on it. The owner has no idea what the password is so I'm stuck as I told him "no problem"
Is it possible to connect the laptop hard-drive to my comp so that I can format it or is there another easier/better solution ?
