I tried your clear instructions 3 times however I only managed to get to step 3.
The computer came up with the original message (as detailed in previous response).
Download is free and legal. Just choose one of the Windows 7 editions listed. Once you have downloaded Windows 7 ISO image, burn it onto a blank DVD using any image burning program, such as Free ISO Burner which can be downloaded HERE. If you already have a valid license (product key) for Windows 7, use it to register Windows 7 after the installation, otherwise, Windows 7 will run in free trial mode for maximum period of 90 days.Regards,
Thank you Miro, I will try that now.
Once you have the Windows 7 installation disc, you can proceed with the installation.You only need to insert an installation disc and the computer will start the installation. Follow the-on screen instructions and you will notice that everything is automatized.When asked to provide a product key, you can skip it (if you don't have it right now).
In case you require additional help, let me know.Regards,
Yes there is one thing I didnt mention. The laptop is windows however all of our computers at home are apple! When I go to the link you sent it will not download.
My apologies Miro for not being clear.
I'm not wanting to install Mac on the laptop, but I am currently using a Mac to communicate with you. So as i attempted to download windows 7os it did not allow it.
It seems that I will have to follow your previous instructions from someone elses windows PC.
I tried all of your advice however I have not managed to load any software onto the machine that keeps coming back with the same message.
The link you gave me in a previous email to a site offering free download of Windows installation files proved difficult to navigate.
I might need to take the laptop to store for a physical inspection.
Thanks anyway. Regards, Chris
Thank you Miro.
I believe this is exactly what I have attempted however I cannot confirm until tomorrow when I get into my office where the laptop is.
I will try again and let you know how i get on.
I really do struggle with IT as you can see.
