I don't have a disk drive. What do I do then?
- If you don't have a Windows installation disk, you need a disk that's called "recovery disk" or "repair disk". These types of disks are bootable and have Command Prompt tools installed.
- To do this simply boot from the operating system install disk as per booting into the recovery console but instead of selectingRfor the console selectEnter to set up Windows [version] now. PressF8to accept the Windows licensing agreement and then when it has found the installation pressRto start the repair.
