How do I install windows on this laptop after a HD reformat?
I received a laptop that was only booting to a grey screen and then freezing. I booted it up with a Linux boot cd that I had and reformatted the hard drive. I tried to install Windows Vista on the laptop, however after the Expanding Files reached 56%, the install cancelled. I have not been able to figure out what the issue is. I was able to boot with Hiren's Recovery CD into Mini Windows XP. Is it possible to perform an install of windows from here? Any help would be very much appreciated.
