Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
Our dell dimension 8200 original hard drive is on the outs. If I replace the hard drive with a new one, will the xp restore disc that dell gave me work on the new hard drive? Not sure what I should actually be doing to get the cd drive to boot with a new hard drive. Actually, I'm not sure exactly what I need to be doing, or what the steps are I should take.
After installing the new hard drive, you'll need to boot the computer from the recovery disk and follow the instructions to format the drive and install windows. You'll also need to install drivers from the driver disk after Windows is up and running. If the computer won't boot from the recovery disk, you'll need to access the "setup" utility and set the CDROM drive as the first boot device. To access the setup utility, press the Delete key after turning on the power. I hope this helps!
