: A friend of mine formatted her hard drive without make a boot disk..I tried giving her my boot disk but it does not work. How do I go about getting windows installed ? All I get is invalid system disk etc etc...

You need a statup disk that supports the CD-ROM drive - other features are helpful; try to make a startup disk (NOT the same as a bootable floppy) using your system (windows Help > startup disk). You MAY need a startup disk that matches the OS, but if the startup disk supports CD-ROM you should be able to get win installation started.

Good Luck,
