Advent 4489 & Missing Bootmgr for windows -
| posts: 178 | Location: Suffolk, UK
I have been given a friends Advent 4489 Netbook to look at as he had some problems, little did I realise that the Bootmgr was missing. Being a netbook and no CD/DVD drive and him losing the backup usb stick I am at a loss.
I have never dabbled with a netbook before and will probably never again but I want to ask a few things if I may.
1. Can I just do a clean install of Win XP Pro from a USB Stick I have here? Is this easy enough to do?
2.Does this type of Netbook require a certain type of usb stick and what format should I use?
3.Looking at the TechGuys website it had suggested using something called USB Drive recovery tool but I cannot seem to get this to work. Has anyone else got an inkling as to why it wont work?
