First of all does the cd boot into the xp installer. If not the the setting in the Bios would be to boot from HardDisk first. Get into bios by the appropriate key on boot and change the boot order to cd/dvd first and then hdd. Now save settings and restart the system and the xp cd should boot up and you will be able to install xp. Be careful as you may delete all data on the hdd.

Some bios use the del or f2 key to enter, see press __ to enter setting's or bios.In that goto the boot order and change appropriately.
If xp is already installed then if other drives are not acessing saying not formatted then the easy fix would be to right click on non formatted drive and click on format. Then you will be able to access it. Do same for all other drives.

Hi there, my problem is ,my windows xp can't startup. i thought my OS has problem, then i try to reformat it (reinstall winxp). the format process fail to complete as well. I try to format same HDD to...


you need to reinstall it completely ...but first check the ram memory ..sounds like a problem there ...If you tried to format during installation and didnt worked..or it worked to format the partition but it didnt let you load files..to start the actuall installation ..this is a issue of Ram memory ..(it may also give you blue screen errors..)
if you only tried to format it from the windows...there is an issue cause this is not possible for partitions with windows on it ...so you need a windows installation bootable cd and boot from it to reinstall and only then you will see if the issue is indeed with the Ram memory ..or was just plane ...bugged..
so ...if you do not have such a disk ..go here ..download a image ..and burn it by double clcik on it ..(using nero for file association ) ..on a new blank cd-r
after that select the first boot device...(in bios) cd /dvd and restart and see whats going on ...if it fails loading files..it is the Ram memory to blame ..or the Hdd..but if the hdd accepted to be installed in another computer ..it only remain the Ram..
here is the image ...use utorrent to download

Computer wont boot properly


A POST diags card can help you resolve your problem/s, if not then.
1. remove all devices and insert the floppy drive, one RAM module and video card.
2. Go into the BIOS configuration and set it to the default configuration, check the installed RAM is it correct? .
3. Insert the remainder RAM module/s and check the POST info and BIOS again, has it detected all the RAM?
4. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk
5. Insert the CD and hard disk and check the POST info and BIOS configuration, does it detect the new drives?
6. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk, run FDISK, can you see the hard drive, if so delete all partitions (if any) and create a new primary DOS partition and then format the hard drive.
7. Boot up with the Windows CD (may have to change the boot order to the CD as the first boot device).
8. Delete the DOS partition, create a primary NTFS partition and the do a full NTFS format (not a quick format) and continue to install Windows Xp or Vista.
9. Install the other device eg modem, Lan etc. and the drivers.

If you have trouble with the first 5 steps, then you most likely have a faulty motherboard and/or a faulty hard disk.

How to format drive so to install xp on 5515


If you are Windows XP bootable CD with u,

first u restart ur computer and change the boot priority in the BIOS setup . Then insert the bootable cd and restart computer.

When some message comes in the screen, regarding bootable cd, press any key for installation,

It will take some time to copy installation files, then configure computer hard disk.

Then u have to agree the continuation of installation by pressing F8.
It will ask u either to repair or install Windows
press appropriate keys for that.
It will show the disk partitions and lets u with options of creating ,deleting paritions .
if u want a partition, then select any large partition and press C and type the amount of memory(in MegaBytes) u want for the partition
After finishing creating partitions,
select any partition and press enter for Windows installation in that partition. and select "format and install" option . It will format that partition and restarts . there is nothing to do more .
After restarting , it takes about 40min to install(times inversly proportional to the processor configuration), it asks for the serial /product key fo ur windows bootable cd, and some general settings about time,time zone,username,passwords etc.
After that , Windows would get completely installed.
Then insert ur motherboard CD for installing driver for (audio,graphics,LAN etc)

Then ur system is ready with Windows.
Ask me if u have any difficulty while installing...
