The other day, I decided that I would erase all 30 gigs of my hard drive clean. Well, I downloaded DBAN to a floppy and ran it after I saved all the stuff I wanted to keep. After 4 hours and 15 minutes, my hard drive was empty. I didn't think about it at the time, but I thought that I could simply throw the Windows XP CD in the cd rom drive and it would just reboot from that, provided that I set my boot order to CD, Floppy, HDD, Net Boot. When my hard drive was wiped, I guess the driver for my cd rom drive got wiped too. It won't boot from the CD, and I also have a copy of SuSe Linux 10.1, a live OS Distro of Knoppix, and Red Hat Linux 9, and it wouldn't boot from them either. Instead, it simply goes on to a black screen with a single line of text that reads "Operating System not found!" So, I'm in quite a fix. Luckily, I had my dad's laptop to hook up so I could get online and do my schoolwork, but I'd really like to get my comp working again. Is there a way to put a driver for a CD-ROM drive back on the HDD with floppy or DOS somehow? Or is there another way to get Windows back on it?
