FreeDos laptop

I am appealing to members with computer knowledge. I need a new laptop and have found that not all computers have Windows installed. To reduce the cost they are being sold with only FeeDos installed. There is a way to install Windows at low cost but as I have never done this before I am looking for advice on the process.

Re: FreeDos laptop

Why not ask a local computer shop how much it would cost for them to install it? You may be pleasantly surprised.

You might want to consider one of the Open Source, totally free versions of Linux.

Re: FreeDos laptop

Most computer shops will put a copy version of windowa on , which is OK , but you do get an annoying pop up on your taskbar every 3 hours, but a simple restart resets it

The reason they do this is for them to get a proper disc version of windows is around £200 or so and most shops won't pay that , so they put on a copy usually of their version which often can't be validated
Mine is like that and I got a really annoying pop up, so read up and you find the file slui.exe and delete it and restart the laptop

You still get after 3 hours , a small yellow glowing pop up in your taskbar you may be running a counterfeit version of windows" and a windows not genuine watermark on your homescreen but as I said a restart cures that
