I have a media center desktop. It was given to me with a fan error. So I fixed the fan. Unfortunately, since I put it off so long I was using it for parts. Now that I have decided to get it up and running again I face an unexpected horror. I had previously unplugged the hard drive and ended up plugging it into the wrong IDE connector. So when I powered the system up I got the black Dos screen staring me in the face with a stupid blinking white command prompt. Corrupted boot files. Grrr. I don't have a boot disk for this installation of windows so I tried to create one from another install on my working pc. It got me into system recovery. That must be computer specific as well. I used it to search the drives for a windows installation to no avail. I can still access the hard drive on my other computer. Is there a way to create a boot disk for the broken computer's installation from my working computer, or is there a better solution? In addition to all this. It doesn't recognize any of the cdrom/dvd drives either. So any software has to be run from the floppy drive, unless there is a way to install the drivers from Dos or the bios, which I can't seem to access either.
