Check whether the data cable is connected directly to your CD drive, if we leave first port and connect to second port then your cd Drive may not be recognised. It might be a mere problem you are facing.

You will need to enter the BIOS setup and change the boot drive otherwise the system will try to boot from the C: drive which is always the default. You can open each menu item without danger as long as you change only that you need and once changed, you will have to save the change and change it back to C: after you have successfully installed the OS.

The BIOS menu changes with different versions and manufacturers so I can't give you much guidance and entering the BIOS setup is also variable but tapping one or more keys during the first instant of the BIOS/CMOS boot sequence will get you in and it may flash a message in text to tell you which key for 'Setup.' This appears often in the lower left corner of the screen, but briefly. If you miss it, just hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and restart the system, this doesn't hurt anything until Windows is trying to load. Typically, it can be an F(n) key, others Esc. Try F1, F5, F8, F11 if no message appears.

I am trying to re-install windows xp on a DELL dimension 8300 but it does'nt boot it can go to the BIOS and everything but it say Boot.mgr is missing


You should use the bootable Windows XP CD to start the installation.
To do that, you must first enter the BIOS in the Boot Options select the DVD drive as first (so that it will boot from CD/DVD first, instead of the hard disk). Save and Exit, insert the bootable Windows XP CD in the drive and when prompted to do so, "press any key to boot from CD-Rom".
Hope the above helps.

My administer account has a password but i,dont know it


You will need the password to log in.If you dont know the password you can always boot your PC from a CD.
To boot your PC from a CD,insert the windows CD into the drive and then reboot the system.but before it logs in to windows that is before it says windows XP and loads click F8 and then choose boot from CD/DVD drive.Here you will be able to either reinstall the OS or repair the OS.If you reinstall the OS you will loose all the data but you will get the complete control of the system.Hope this solution was useful for you.

How can i repair my CPU cause of problem TDLR missing? how can i repair my CPU?


NTLDR is missing in windows XP

The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft has a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility.

This problem may occur if the basic input/output system (BIOS) on your computer is outdated, or if one or more of the following Windows boot files are missing or damaged:

Ntldr
Ntdetect.com
Boot.ini

Check your drives for floppy,USB storage devices,CDs and any other bootable media.Because sometmes these things makes problems.Then go to BIOS and do the BIOS settings to boot from the source where the OS is installed.

1: Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

2: When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.

3: Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.

4: Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key(most of the cases it will be "1" only) and pressing enter.

5: You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.

6: From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:

COPY D:I386NTLDR C:
COPY D:I386NTDETECT.COM C:

Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

if you run winxp then follow these steps 1)Insert the bootable windows xp setup dvd/cd in the drive 2)The system will boot the dvd by asking you (PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT THE CD...)press enter 3)Then the setup files starts to load on the screen , a blue screen appears , it may take sometime for setup loading process. wait till it gets over 4)after the files get loaded ,it will give you three options press enter there 5)then press f8.then press esc on the next screen if it shows the previous version of windows 6)then you will be able to see your drive there ,the drive which you want to format just press d on the particular drive and it becomes unpartioned space,again press c on the unpartioned space and create the drive again , 7)do this for every drive 8)and for installing the fresh copy of windows choose a particular drive and press enter and then choose the format using ntfs NOT QUICK the third option remember tats it for xp
If it is for vista or 7 insert the dvd of the particular os and then install which doesnt have some complicated things like xp

Unable to install XP OS to MSI lap top


insert a bootable xp cd into the cd drive and hit enter continuosly...it ll ask to hit any key to continue from cd...hit any screen and follow the onscreen instructions...

if it doesnt works, try this....
u can log in to the setup by pressing del key or F2(depends upon make and model) and change the drive booting order...change the first booting device as CD/DVD and second booting device to HDD...
now it ll prompt you to hit any key to start from CD/DVD....
Make sure you have inserted a bootable XP CD in CD drive....Bootable XP CD's can be created only from another bootable XP cd by taking an image from that cd and writing it back to the cd...you can use NERO Copy disc option for this purpose...it ll create an iso image and you can use only this to write into the disc...

How to reformat my nc6000 using my os cd?


The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.

  1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.

  3. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.

  5. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows computer that is using FAT32.
  6. New hard disk drive being added.
  7. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
  8. Seriously corrupted version of Windows.
  9. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable
  10. .
To Fix
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.

  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. 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:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot

Unable to reinstall windows xp


try it again with the bootable floppy disk... if you have the option use fdisk /mbr and then format the computer and reinstall using the cd you have. the fdisk /mbr command will get rid of any virus residing in your master boot record.
