How do I rebuild the MBR?


Hi,

You will need an XP install CD for this and also set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device.

  1. Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.

  2. Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
  3. When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console.
  4. The Recovery Console is now loading but needs to know which Windows installation to access. Most users only have a single Windows XP installation so the choice is usually clear.
    To the Which Windows installation would you like to log onto question, press 1 and then Enter.
  5. The Recovery Console now needs to know the administrator password for this Windows XP installation. Unless you are using a PC in a sizable business network, the administrator password is most likely the same password you use to access Windows XP on a daily basis. To the Type the Administrator password request, enter the password and press Enter.
    Note: If you do not have a password or Windows XP normally starts without asking for one, simply press Enter.
  6. Type fixmbr and then press Enter.
  7. The fixmbr utility will write a master boot record to the hard drive that you're currently using to boot into Windows XP. This will repair any corruption or damage that the master boot record may have.
  8. Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
    Assuming that a corrupt master boot record was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.

Regards.

Hi, you will need to reformat your hard drive before installing XP, First boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during bootup, change the primary boot drvice to CD rom, save changes. Insert XP cd into drive and reboot PC; select boot from CD when this appears during the initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed. When this finishes, delete partion and then repartion hard drive. Select format hard drive, when this completes your PC will reboot, do not select boot from CD and XP will start to install normally.
Hope this helps, if not come back to me.

Can not install window xp


Your laptop probably has a SATA hard drive, windows XP only provides with PC's/laptops with a PATA hard drive.

You have to make up your mind what your really want to do.

1) Do you want a dual boot machine, working off XP and Win7?

Here's one web site:-

http://webtrickz.com/how-to-install-windows-xp-over-windows-7-in-a-dual-boot/

2) Do you want to replace Win7 with XP.

Here's a web site which covers that :-

Repair start up failure


Well it depends on how severe is your start up problem, if the OS still loads lets say on Windows XP more or less you just have to repair the boot.ini, if you have your Windows XP CD load it to your computer(make sure that on the BIOS setup the intial boot devce must be your CD ROM) When the initialization finished press R to open the command prompt the type the following;

bootcfg /rebuild
The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.

The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.

The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.

The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.

Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.
