  1. If you have a Windows XP CD place it in the CD drive.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. When it says "Boot from CD..." press Enter.
  4. Wait for the CD to load, then follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. When a list of partitions is displayed, choose the largest one and press D (NOTE: This WILL delete EVERYTHING on your hard drive).
  6. Follow the instructions to delete.
  7. Press "F" to format the clean hard drive. (May also be "L" depending on your revision of Windows XP). A quick format will be sufficient unless you have spyware, malware, and/or viruses.
  8. Select "NTFS file system and delete old files".
  9. Wait about an hour for the drive to format (times may vary depending on the size of the drive and if you chose quick format or not).
  10. When the drive finishes formatting, follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows (it displays the keyboard keys and actions on the bottom of the screen).
  11. When it finishes installing, it will start up normally with a clean hard drive.
  12. Note that my instructions are vague and could be different depending on the type of computer that you have.
  13. Additional Note: You are able to do a re-install of Windows Operating System without formatting the hard drive. If this is the case, a backup won't be necessary unless you absolutely see fit to do so.

I am going to purchase hp z400 with xeon processor 4gb 500 gb nvidea 1gb quadro graphic card , please let me kno that can i install windows xp in it


Yes you should be able to install Windows XP on this computer system. However Windows XP Professional 64bit edition will be better as you will be running 4GB of RAM. If you use 32bit version it can only make use of 3.85GB of the 4GB installed.

If you can install Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

Take care!

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

I bought lenovo G550 last week. It came with Windows Vista. I want to install Windows XP on it. I have found that lenovo has driver for windows XP so that will make my life easy :-) But when I try to...


you are most likely getting a BSOD with a stop error code of 0x0000007B which is caused by the Windows XP CD that you are using doesn't have the SATA Hard Drive controller driver needed to recognize and utilize the hard drive. If Lenovo has XP drivers for this model then they should have a SATA driver (roughly 394k) that will need to be loaded FROM A FLOPPY DISKETTE during the boot to XP. (XP Requires the driver to either be slipstreamed into the CD or loaded from a floppy diskette. Trying to load the controller driver USB or a different CD will not work)

one chance is there for you. just do a repair which HDD drive is detecting win32 missing. just follow these steps.

Please read carefully and make sure you followed the warning links before initiating
the Repair Install. You can print a text version for reference. repair.txt

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the
system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation
for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.
To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.
To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery
Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I
repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the
Recovery Console, press R".

4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows
installations.

5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the
repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read
Warning

6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any
key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it
were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
