Presario 1275 win xp sp2 restore and system recovery disks

I have the same problem that Zyro13 posted on mar-9-08. My system locks at the "starting windows" when I try to reinstall xp and on the reboot I get the "save to disk file not found run phdisk for information. File: create new. Partition: consult manual" message. would gladly pay for copies of the disks (only have dialup and anything over 2.5 meg is almost imposable to download) . no files on drive that I can't replace. Thanks for any help in advance.

The presario 1275 was made in 1999, and it is more than likely the CMOS battery. this was the problem on a unit I recently repaired.

Replace the CMOS battery. If you are inclined to do it yourself, you should be able to find instructions online to disassemble the laptop yourself. when you do the job, be careful with the metal heat shield plate. It has many grounding tapes which should be re-secured when re-assembling the unit.

You should be able to find a replacement at Radio Shack (CR1220).

Put wrong recovery disk into new computer.


have a look here
and more pertinent, the F11 option here. If you have the right disks, you should still be able to run them...you will just have to boot windows from the recovery disks...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

System disc error Compaq Pesario 1275


This is either an issue with the CMOS batter which may need to be changed, I have seen this error on thinkpads and one way of resolving it is to install an older BIOS, you can download a BIOS from your machine and install it using there instructions

Hope this helps

System file is "missing or corrupt"


You MUST use the installation bootup disk to install windows it is the only way........... NOT THE RECOVERY DISK this is a MUST. Allow it to go through the motion of installing Windows until it cannot go any further. Then press the "R" key for the console. When in the DOS screen TYPE ... chkdsk /p Windows will repair itself and then you will recover all your data it should be back to normal.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2


I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51521-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3369431&os=228&lang=en extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps
