Damnit, I guess the disk drive is messed up or something, because even without the hard drive in the laptop it should STILL run the installer off the disk. I'm confused though, because when I power the laptop on, you can distinctively hear the laser head reposition itself. You know.. that distinct sound any disk drive makes for the first second when you power a computer on than goes away. Yeah, that sound. I can hear that. But when I put a disk in the drive and close it, and try restarting it, nothing shows up! Just that stupid black screen with that blinking curser at the top left!
