My sisters laptop, Medion microstar has packed in.
When I boot it up it says no operating system.
I have no recovery disks to help me sort it out - my own for my PC don't work.
I have tried to copy floppy boots to CD and run them - no joy.
I have tried to the windows set up disk - The laptop tells me there has been an error and wont run xp set up. The blue screen thing happens.

Can someone help?

I thought I'd nothing more to do that run the xp set up/ format and or partition the drive and install xp.

Thanks in advance.
