I bought an old toshiba laptop online to play with, and cannot get it to load an operating system. I have tryed two different hard drives and two different operating systems. It came with a formatted 40 gig toshiba hard drive, and I had a 30 gig spare to try. The unit will load Vista business up untill the time for a restart---- then it just hangs. I have heard of computers that you cannot load operating systems on --- have I found one one of them?
UPDATE--- AS I am retired and have nothing better to do than fool with this thing, I thought I would try DOS , WIN. 3.1 and any of 15 or twenty Linux distros that I have. Folks, if you find a machine that will not fully load an operating system, KEEP TRYING--- this thing accepted windows 7 home premium and is now downloading the upgrades.
