Hard Drives Messed Up
I just bought a new hard drive and installed Vista with my re-install discs from my old Acer. After I did this and used my old drive to get the data off of it, a message kept popping up about how it was an invalid copy of Vista and I needed to register. I ignored this because I did not plan on using this drive later, but when I put my new drive in, it says there was no boot software. I tried to use the reinstall discs, but this did not work, so I moved onto my Ubuntu discs. Here when I got the the 4th step, it said that it was unable to create a partition. So I am wondering if anyone knows how I can solve this, and if you need the actual error message I can get those. Please help, as I don't want to buy a new OS and hard drive.
Thank you a lot.
