I have a problem with an on old laptop (Acer Aspire 5100). I need to do a clean install but the cd/dvd drive works on and off so cannot do a clean install that way. The recovery partition was corrupt so I just formatted the hdd. I can take out the laptop hdd and put it into my pc's hot swap bay so surely there should be a way to solve this problem? Ideas, options?
I wasn't being lazy with all the questions lol, I was just hoping for 'best practice' as there seems to be a lot of options and different programs. I found a video which explained how to mount the image then use cmd to prepare and copy it to a usb flash drive. It's copying over at the moment so I'll let you know what happens.
