putting Windows ME, or XP on old hard drive
I'm a newbie and don't know wat forum category this belongs under but im going to put it on both hardware and software and you can delete the one that is wrong.
anywayz onto my problem, i had a windows ME compaq computer that suddenly wouldn't start , it would get to the red logo compaq and quit, i tried to the Q/R cd's but they didnt' work,
I hooked up the old hard drive to an windows Xp hp computer(the one im on now) and want to reformat it and put either xp on it or windows ME back on it.
I've read many places how to do this but they all say you need the original cd that came with the computer, but i never got an original windows xp cd or a windows me with either computer
Is there some files that i can copy from xp to make a cd and burn it onto the hard drive or something, or is this impossible
thanx for the help
