Need a new hard drive but have no windows vista disk


You don't.
Do you have backup software? If so, do a "disk and partition" backup. This essentially creates an image of your system, even if you have multiple hard disks. Decent backup software (I won't mention any brands except the one I use: Acronis) will allow for a boot time recovery of your entire system, either by inserting a post-bios command -- which will appear on your screen before windows startup with a message like "Press F12 for system recovery", or you should press whatever key your system allows for boot order and boot from the recovery disk you can create from the software.
You can even now immediately create a Windows backup to an appropriately sized USB mounted disk (even the terabyte ones are relatively cheap) and a Windows Recovery Disk...the recovery disk should be inserted and use boot order F-key...good luck

Problem getting recovery disk


I understand that you want to reinstall the Operating System on the computer. Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer. To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.
  1. Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.
  3. Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.
  4. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
  5. Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
  6. After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Refer the URL for more information and for the link to order the Recovery media if required.

Error message "load needed dlls for kernel"


1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue. 2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key. 3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console. 4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. 5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file. 7. Type exit to reboot the computer.

You need to boot from them to launch the recovery process. The key to press to select boot device is in the first screen that appears. Press it, select the cd/dvd unit and follow the instructions on the screen.

I power up the computer and get ''operating system not found'' on the screen.


The operating system not found error message is one commonly seen by techs and non-technical people alike. If you run into one, it may not be a problem at all. Here's an example:

If you're installing a new operating system to a hard drive or partition, or have just installed a new mother board, chances are you aren't alone. Most of the occurrences of the operating system not found error occur during these processes. In many cases, this is simply BIOS related, and can be changed very quickly (and remedied) during the Boot process. There are a wide variety of occurrences of this error, so if you have recently been "tinkering" or have installed a new operating system, take heart, there are many computer forums on the subject which may be able to point you to an answer.

Another reason why you may get an operating system not found message, is due to a damaged or incorrectly formatted partition. If your computer can't read the partition, then all data stored within that partition cannot be found. This includes your operating system. To solve the problem, you may need to look into partition recovery.

There are instances, however, when the operating system not found error occurs because of file system error, or worse, hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, you may require professional hard disk drive recovery, especially if you were not changing the system details recently, and were just working as normal.
When To Suspect Hard Disk Drive Failure Certainly, there is an explanation for everything, and the operating system not found error can be explained very easily. First, check your floppy disk drive. Is there a disk in it? In cases where this occurs, simply removing the floppy disk will likely solve your problem. Your computer may have been looking for an operating system on the floppy, and as a result, you were handed an error message. Removing the floppy disk should fix your issue.

If there is no floppy disk in your drive, it may be time to check the boot sequence. You can do this in your BIOS. First of all, does your hard drive get detected as the primary hard drive? If it does not, your hard drive may have in fact failed. If it does, move to the Boot Sequence section of the BIOS. If your hard drive does not show up within the first three boot devices, you probably have a problem. Adjust your BIOS accordingly.

Can't Find Hard Disk Drive Either

If you've done these preliminary checks, and are still receiving the operating system not found error, you could be facing hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, remember : DO NOT PANIC. 99 times out of 100, your hard drive's data can be recovered by a professional firm. So rest easy. Then try this test if you have another computer system available.

First, disconnect your hard disk drive from your system, and connect it to a system you know works as the slave drive.

Second, boot up the system and go into Windows explorer. If you can see the drive, you may not have a problem at all, or have one which can be fixed with simple data recovery software tools (Do a search on Google for data recovery software tools for a selection).

If, on the other hand, you cannot see your drive, you may want to consult a professional hard disk drive recovery shop like Hard Disk Recovery Services. Contact us here for a hard disk drive recovery quote, and we will usually be able to diagnose your problem over the phon

My pc will not boot up it says windows/system32/ is missing


For that you need recovery disk.
Put that disk in cd/dvd rom.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with that recovery disk then follow the procedure and choose "R" for recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then press "y
then it fix error on harddisk.
Then resatrt computer then if still same error then again boot computer with disk then choose "r" for repair previous windows then it repairs it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

What is NTLDR


NT Loader (NTLDR) is a small piece of software loaded from the boot sector of your primary hard drive that helps your operating system start.

If you have multiple operating systems installed and properly configured, NTLDR will show a boot menu when your PC starts, allowing you to choose which operating system to start.
