A colleague has brought her laptop in as it wont boot. It was giving her a message saying "Operating System not found"
I can see the HDD in the BIOS, but it wont boot.
I taken it out of her machine and popped it into my work machine, checked in the disc manager and its not initialised and shows as Unallocated. It will let me initilise it, but its asking what partition style to use, MBR or GPT, so I havent done anything yet. if I initialise it will that change any of the data on it?
Its a 500Gb drive and shows 465.76Gb as unallocated space. Is it basically a blank disc?
