after installing a new hard drive on my inspiron 1525 I place the drivevers and utilities driver on the cd/dvd player drive, chose boot from cd/dvd drive, and I get this message
your cd/dvd drive during this boot cycle is f:
a RAMDISK drive is available for this boot cycle as C:
it contains several hard drive setup tools. Please use these tools only under the direction of dell support staff.
What do i enter after F:\> ?????????
Before installing drivers, you must use a Windows disc to install Windows.
It has been done by me and is a problem I have right now-same exact thing so what do you put after the F's flashing cursor?
To understand the issue and help you further, I would request you to help me with few details about the issue. -- What exactly is happening when you turn on the computer? -- Do you see a black screen with a blinking cursor? -- What is the Operating System? -- What is the System Model? Run a hardware diagnostics to check if there is any hardware failure. -- Restart the computer. -- Keep tapping F12 key on the Dell Logo screen. -- From One Time Boot Menu, select Diagnostics and press Enter. -- If the test fails please capture the Error Code and write back to us would be glad to assist with the next course of action.
