Hello all, I have a old laptop that im trying to get some use out of that has a bad HDD. I know this situation is less than preferable but I dont care for the HDD and am ok with running it into the ground, there isn't going to be anything on it that I will need to keep. The issue I have ran into though is when I go to install windows I get met with a error that doesn't allow me to install due to the HDD's condition. Is there anyway to bypass this check to allow me to install windows?
