Installing new hard drive w/no CD-ROM drivers. RRS feed

  • Question

  •     Hello.  Fixing an HP Pavillion for a friend and just put a new 80gig hard drive in it.  PC finds the drive on startup, but will not boot because there's obviously nothing on it.  I slap in my Windows disc, but cannot get to it b/c neither one of the two DVD roms are found.  It DOES however recognize the 3.5" floppy.  Can anyone give my a good starting point?

  • This is the Windows Home Server forum. You might want to contact HP about your friend's problem, or try the Microsoft newsgroups for the operating system you're working with (you don't say which OS that is...) 
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
