I have a Toshiba laptop. The hard drive went out. I tried resetting it to factory settings just to see if anything would come around but the hard drive still wouldn't boot. I have all my files backed up so I didn't lose anything.
So I installed a new hard drive and here is my question. Can I boot it from a Windows 7 boot disc or do I have to totally reinstall Windows 7 (or possibly Windows XP) from the initial install discs?
