    Strange. Normally you can just boot from a Windows install CD and when the installer starts you access the hdd setup screen and can just completely wipe out the mbr, setup new partitions and go from there.

    He didn't have a WinBlowZ CD to use at the time. One of those pesky Acer affairs that fell over itself because Grub was on the MBR. He only had restore disks as supplied by vend0r.

    manufacturers cost cutting by not supplying proper install discs. Even worse when they don't even do that and just include the files in a recovery partition. Very useful when the hdd fails!

    With Windows 8 at least, if you have your s/n then you can log into Windows/M$ site and download the os install iso.

    I always grab a retail copy of each Windows so I have an original install disc, however win 8 was the first I didn't do this. I took advantage of a special deal to grab win 8 for 15 when it was released and it linked to an iso download.
