How To Install Windows On Free Dos Hp Laptop by daremarvell: 5:47pm On Oct 01, 2015
I got a brand new Hp laptop but I discovered it's a free Dos. No window installed.
The pictures below are the onscreen display after powering it on. I already have a bootable window 10 OS on my flash drive. How do I go about it. Guru help

Restart the laptop when it goes off and on again press f2 and f10. one of the two f will take you to the. laptop BIOS, follow the instructions and find your way to the laptop boot sequence.
In the boot sequence set the USB or FDD as the first not DVD rom or Harddrive.

After you have done that,pessimistic enter then f10 to save the change you have made your computer will restart.

While it is restarting press f9 and f12 one of the f will take you to the boot piority, in the boot purity the USB or FDD you have set as first will highlight there click or select it and your laptop will reboot and either show you click any botton to boot from USB or F1 will show up click fi then you will see click any bottton to boot from USB.

Good luck.

Thanks for sparing ur time to type this. I hav pressed both f2 and f10. It won't enter the bios set up. My question is what does the C:\> means

Good luck.
Thanks

C:> mean that you are at the C directory on the doc operating system, type in the command that will take you to next step action if you are a Dos base person you will understand what i mean.

If it didn't didn't take you to the BIOS means you have not apply it correctly.
