    sorry guys but i got a ??? :::

    I have a brand new set of Hp factory restore disks that they sent me awhile ago but have never used... i recently sold my pc and my buddy wants my disks. It is not a HP but it is a compaq.. Is there any kind of patch or a way to install these disks onto his pc? when you put it in and reboot it says system not supported..

    i'll save you time. NO. he needs to get a real copy of windows or discs made for his pc.

    And i'll correct Auslander by saying no, they won't work, he needs compaq specific discs.

    even if it works, it's not smart. you're starting off with drivers not made for that machine.

    if you've got a windows serial key (and you should, somewhere on a sticker on the case), then just download the proper version of windows and burn it, using that key.
