My laptop CD-ROM is no longer working, and I need to format the hard drive and reload Windows XP. My laptop is Fujitsu Siemens AMILO. I purchased an 'EASY IDE' adaptor, followed the instuction to set up the adaptor, and connected the laptop hard drive.
It found the hard drive and assigned the drive as, E:\ drive. Now this is as far as I have got, because there was no instructions as to how I should reload Windows on the hard drive. Having said this, I do believe that I have formated the hard disk drive, but what do I do next?
