  • Question

  • i bought my daughters refurbished compaq desktop from fry's.  it came with windows xp media center installed and also had recovery discs.  knowing i had the recovery discs, i recently formatted the hd to perform a clean install.  as luck (poor planning) would have it, the discs that came with the unit are for a laptop system.  the system won't install based on this.   can you help?
