Hey there, this is my first post. So I'm not exactly the greatest when it comes to computers. A friend of mine had gotten me a copy of windows 7 (legally) through school. So the entire installation process goes well and then it starts to boot up for the first use and I get a white screen with a giant red "ERROR" on it saying it can't find c:\RECOVERY.DAT. there is my problem, my laptop is bricked and I haven't the foggiest what to do. I tried downloading a vista recovery disk and putting that in the drive but no luck. Please help, I'm pretty screwed without this laptop. I looked around and apparently it happens to a lot of ASUS users trying to upgrade. Thanks for any responses.
