Presario X1000 dead dead dead!
This is my first post and first time in this forum, it looks to be very informative, now on to the problem.
Presario X1000 laptop crashed, I checked the hard drive and it is completely fried, I replaced the hard drive, laptop can see it I then purchased the recovery disks from Compaq/hp, and the laptop will not boot into the CD. I have gone into the BIOS checked all the settings for boot sequence, still will not boot off the cd. Has anyone had this issue before, Is the CD drive toast as well.
I have been trying to make the hard drive bootable, I have a desktop with a SATA/IDE USB adaptor and can format the new laptop hard drive on my desktop, I can even copy the new XP recovery discs to the hard drive, I then get an error messg when I boot up "BOOTMGR is missing"
Thanks for your help in advance
