There is a lot on this forum but nothing that answers my problem.
My Acer Aspire laptop HD died which ran on Vista Home
(1) I purchased a new drive which I installed and was recognised
(2) I used my Recovery disks - part way through they hung up so I repeated the process twice more.
(3) Result was "Invalid Partition"
(4) I have searched the internet for advice and a fix with no luck because it is assumed that there is a working "Startup" disk which I do not now have?
I do realise I need a brand new operating system since clearly my original recovery disks are corrupt (otherwise they would not have stalled during installation) however until I can sort out the Invalid Partition I cannot install anyway.
Can anyone help???
