E-system replace hard drive
The hard drive in my E-system 3115 broke. I replaced the hard drive with a western digital 80gb. I ordered the recovery disks from The Tech Guys. I've screwed in the new hard drive and turned the laptop on, started it up and put the CD in. It's currently saying "Operating system not found".
Any ideas on how to get the CD to run? I thought it would automatically go through the recovery process when I inserted the CD.

Is your CD drive listed as 1st boot device in your bios?

in the BIOS setup, the current order is:
IDE CD
USB KEY
USB FDC
USB CDROM
IDE HDD
PCI BEV

I assume this is correct.
