Answers :

Not a problem, I'll help you thru it. What we need to do is boot up off of the cd so we can install the operating system.

Then we need to install drivers once all of that is done.

Then at that point we will verify that all the hardware is installed and from there you can on your own install the programs that you might have that you want put back on there.
