Default don't have restore disk for ctx!!!!

hey everyone. need some help here please. i have another computer, a dinosaur. it is a ctx computer ala1022p

i do not have the restore disk, and when the hard drive was formatted ( not by me ) the comp restarted and said "invalid system disk" but there wasn't a disk at all in the comp. i went to the properties and changed the boot sequence to see if that helped. it didn't. basically, i have a dead duck and was wondering if anyone had or knew someone who had a restore disk for it? thanks...nathan

The reason it said invalid system disk is because there is no OS on your harddrive like windows or linux .So all you need is a Os like windows 98se or something like that.Then If you get up and running with that get the drivers for the motherboard and add in cards like sound and vid card modem from drivers and install them and your set.
