I installed a new HD on a HP Pavilion 8755c that ran Win ME on it. However I don't have a ME installation CD-Rom but only the ME recovery disc set that came with it. They won't work! Instead of having to pay $200 plus for a new Windows OS installation disc can I just buy a $27.00 Linux program like Linspire and reinstall? I've never used Linux and no absolutely nothing about it, however I can see that the price is signifigantly different! Also what about the program FreeSpire should I know? Is it an option for what I'm doing?
