Dear,
does cd show any files, if yes then it should install it..
if not then might be possible that there is scratches or brakage in cd...
if not, then it should be install ...
moreover, check if ur system has any previous files there,
what about backup. did ur friend put the backup to your new harddriver..
if yes, then remove any files existing relavant to that...and then reinstall a fresh copy..
hope it will work.

dont forget to rate, if its functional

regards,

When dell loads the Microsoft windows, I receive this message" the drive not found please try to reseat".


It sounds like you need a new harddrive or windows needs to be re installed. Try getting windows reinstalled and if this doesn't help then your harddrive is gone.

No, those product keys are called OEM which means they are tied to the computer it was sold with. Even if you got another Dell you cannot use that product key. However the acer may have its own key that you can use.
