Not even a SATA? Could I connect my flashdrive from my desktop to his laptop despite its small size? Or do I need an SSD?

Aight, I'll see what I can do! If mine doesnt fit, I assume he can sacrifice his files and buy a new computer or get it repaired at some professionals - we'll see! Thanks alot for the help, and I'll update the thread tomorrow if there's anything noteworthy.

Your hard drive in your dad's laptop will not start Windows - keep that in mind. It would just test to see if it will boot with a different hard drive.

You could just remove the hard drive and start the laptop without one. If all is well with the laptop you should be able to get into the BIOS. Asus laptops use F2 to enter BIOS. Use ESC to open a boot menu to access optical drive.

You start pressing the key the second you see the BIOS screen.
