installing windows on a blank hard drive? Answered
i have a acer aspire 3680 with vista pre installed on it.
the hard drive has a problem, when i boot it jams right before the login screen (black screen)
when i try to boot in safe mode the loading stops at crcdisk.sys then jams.
i have tryed putting the harddrive of my other laptop in it(vista), and it works perfectly (boots and everything)
so i target the hard drive. i want to install windows xp on it but when i boot the computer from the cd it says:
it cant find something
would it work for me to take a laptop who has windows 7 on it, remove the hard drive put the one from my acer on it boot it and install windows xp on the acer drive while in the windows 7 laptop without damaging anything on the windows 7 laptop?
