I've got a situation on my hands and need some assistance if at all possible. So here it goes, I've got a Laptop and a Desktop. The laptop was running windows xp pro, but now it has a bunch of corrupted operating system files beyond repair. The desktop is also running windows xp pro and everything is fine and dandy with that. Now what I need to do is "ghost" (I think this means copy) the HDD in my desktop and put the image on my laptop so it will run windows again. I think I need this adapter, because I dont have a cd burner on my desktop (link below)... http://insidecomputer.stores.yahoo.net/la2tode3hadr.html But beond that I dont know what to do. Could someone please help me get my laptop running again?
