    Reset Your PC. Please wait


    so I changed my hdd on my hp prebook 4540s to a hdd from a friend but I don't have his password so I just went into troubleshoot and reset my pc.
    im not sure whether its 8 or 8.1 v of the windows
    I chose reset my pc and now its in a scree that says what I wrote in the title of this thread.

    Welcome to the forum. So oif I understand you put in a HD from another pc and then tried to use the reset pc with the comtents of the disk from another pc?
    If thats so the problem is the pc will be setup for another system and may not have drivers for your pc or it may be a OEM verion locked to a bios
