my hard drive in my laptop got wiped COMPLETELY and I cant get windows ultimate or mac os mountain lion to install.
windows is on a cd and mac is on my usb is there any way I can get either to work.

when I install windows I need my laptop driver disk and it didn't come with one and its out of warranty and mac isn't doing anything.
is there a way I can get mac to work I have another laptop but it has no disk drive and no admin access is there anything at all or is my laptop screwed.
and no downloading software I cant download and install it.

thanks

i have no clue about Mac. Go to a friend and download and burn the drivers unzipped to a a dvd.

P.s. In order for me to give a reliable answer you must post the exact error message that you are given when installing windows...

and the other one

I have the same problem with my hard drive. I even tried to install a new operating system on it and when it came to the step where it asks you to choose which drive you want to install the new OS into, it didn't find the hard drive at all. It happened after I chose the option to format the hard drive in the advanced options.
