PLEASE HELP: Reload CD question

  coolteentom 17:38 30 Sep 2003


I have recently bought a CD-RW drive (internal) to go onto my computer, but I got a virus and had to re-install.

This now means that it reloaded to a older OS, incompatable with the CD-RW drive.

I have borrowed a 'Reload CD version 2' from a friend. If I re-install with this Cd, will it mess up my system or not.

Thanks for your help.


We both have Time systems.

If you both have the same make and madel it should be okay, but only if the specs are identical, otherwise I would steer clear and buy a copy of the required O/S, and do a clean install.

My PC is 5 years old, and his is new, so I suppose it would be quite risky.

Thanks for the info.
