My acer aspire 5336-2524 bricked. Windows 7 stopped working. I have the 4 Recovery Disks and a Repair Disk 64 bit. I did these when I first got the laptop. That's all I did, I didn't clone the system.
Anyway, I cannot figure out how to get the Windows 7 OS working again, I got ticked off and as a way to test the HD, I installed ubuntu and it works fine. I did a full install of ubuntu 10.4 but want to try fixing Windows 7.
The Practical BBQ'r!
update: I figure the 4 recovery disks burned off laptop are garbage, i downloaded windows7 OS for 32 bit which worked, well, almost worked, the issue ahead of me now is i need to reformat the hd to work with windows and not ubuntu, NTSB? is that the term??
Anyway, in the old days you could run a floppy with the basic commands on it, including erase and format HD, how do I do that on a laptop running pure ubuntu?? is there a website I can download from??
