How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Hello,pls I am having problem with my laptop IBM R30. Whenever I turn it on,It displays NTLDR file missing.MY mail is abincojay@yahoo.com


Windows 2000 users If your computer is using Microsoft Windows 2000 and you are encountering the NTLDR error. Create the below boot.ini file on the floppy diskette drive. [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect Copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files from another computer using the same operating system. Both of these files are located in the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. For example, C:\NTLDR and C:\NTDETECT.COM should be the locations of these files on many computers. Please keep in mind that these files are hidden system files, if you need additional help with viewing hidden files in Windows please see document CH000516. Once these files have been copied to a floppy diskette reboot the computer and copy the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files to the root directory of the primary hard disk drive. Below is an example of what commonly should be performed from the A:\> drive. copy ntldr c: copy ntdetect.com c: After the above two files have been copied, remove the floppy diskette and reboot the computer. Windows XP users Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer. copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\ copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\ Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Window Xp Pro Setup Hangs at Logo Screen after reboot


You can try also to do reformat your hard drive as fresh unallocated one before doing formatting again to install windows. And check your installation disk for scratches.

System continuously reboots after initial format and copying of the files.


If there is jumper setting in your second harddrive set it to slave drive. And the first boot drive to primary. If these doesn't help your installer disk have a problem.

Leave a comment if this doesn't help.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

Computer system problem


Your hard disk might be SATA interface, and XP don't have access to this type of hardisk. It requires RAD driver for that type of disk.

1). You can make your HDD accessable to XP by disabling the SATA mode in your system BIOS setup. Then XP will access your HDD and it will be installed.

2). You can also make your HDD accessable to XP by atchi driver. Go to your motherboard manufacturer site and download SATA driver according to model number. This may be compressed or auto extract exe. Extract all files and copy it into a floppy disk. Then start your XP and press F6 at first screen, then it will be prompted to insert RAD driver from setup, follow the instructions and XP will be installed on your system.

Thanks
