I have an old Compaq computer (5 years old), which came with Windows Vista. I made the recovery disks for the Operating System. A few days ago I took the hard drive out of the computer to use it as a portable hard drive, but now I want to install Windows on the previous Vista partition (50 GB).
I put my recovery disk in, booted from it, and installed factory OS to my HDD which works fine. I set the boot sequence to USB Hard drive and then CD/DVD Drive. My computer does not boot from the USB drive and the computer just comes up with a blank screen with a cursor blinking on it.
What do you guys think the problem is and how can I solve it?
