Re: Accidently wiped XP from hard drive - please help
Yeah, you can't use one of those recovery discs that are meant for another computer, it will work on that computer only. You need an actual XP install disc, any one will work as long as you have an OEM number for the pc you are installing it on. If you don't have a disc, you could borrow one from a friend or even download (cough cough....it's legal) windows xp without an oem number.
You never said whether you have an oem number for that pc or not.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
