A friends motherboard fried damaging the hard drive. The PC had Win XP home pre-installed with the recovery on a seperate partition. I can access this partition. Will I be able to burn this folder containing the recovery onto DVD so that I can intal it onto a new hard drive? Ta.
If you can borrow an OEM copy of windows XP Home and use the product key from the sticker on the case it should work but you will have to reactivate by phone and explain that you had to change the motherboard but it is still on the same computer.
