Re: Error Loading Operating System
Do you still have the original recovery disc for the PC? If so, put that into the disc drive then boot the computer. It can help you either save the installed operating system or create a new one if there is a serious problem.
This could also be due to a hard disk drive failure, in which case you'd be needing to get a new hard disk. Most of the time however, just a file allocation table messes up during a power down, or some other random problem happened and just caused a simple error on the drive. I'd definitely find that recovery disc. If nothing else, you can use google to search for recovery boot disks that you can download and burn to a CD using a different computer. They can help as well.

1. The reason it says "error loading operating system" is because kill disk wiped the operating system from off your computer. 2. Now that you have the installation disk, you need to tell the computer to boot from it. For Dells, usually press F12 when the Dell logo appears, and it should bring up a boot menu. Select the optical drive and it should boot. If you do not see a boot menu, go into your computer's BIOS and tell it to look at the optical drive first when booting, then it will boot from the disk.
Ok.Better reinstall the os.Because disk boot error cannot be solved is suppose...To install the os follow these steps.

You may be right , the harddrive on the system may have gone bad.
You can run a diagnostics on the hardrive,shut down the computer, and then Press the Fn+ power button at the same time , it would initate the diagnostics.
what is the error message that you're getting.. usually windows vista will not downgrade your operating system to windows xp. You may need to remove vista before you can load xp.
make sure to save a back up of all of your important files before you do that.
