The Os from dell, compaq & hp are oem.
they are made keeping the hrdwr settings of the computer in mind.
so, if ur computer hardwr configurate specifics do not match with that of the dell OS then it f=will fail.
if case u had any working os that will also be formated.

you will need a retail version or the recovery cds from copmutersurgeons.com

No you can't.

After your OS CD inserted it will perform a routine to see which it is your brand machine, if your machine is not a Dell the OS installation will be aborted.

You can try using a Generic OS CD

My pc will not boot saying "setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration. . .


I think you may have left the operating system cd in the cd drive - this message appears when your pc boots the cd before it installs the operating system. So check your cd drive and remove any disks

PC DO NOT BOOT


It seems that you don't have any Operating System installed. You need some bootable OS setup disk, and change BIOS settings to boot you PC from CD. Insert disk and restart PC, then follow onscreen instructions to setup OS.

Wtf?? again


Hi. Azrul here. You can get into bios and select to boot up using your CD as your first boot priority.

But if that is not possible, just contact compaq or Helwett-Packard for a restore disk.

Clean the drive so it can be put back to orginal factory


http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html

Compaq / Hewlett Packard Support Website. Make sure you have correct Compaq model (ie: Presario 5000). You should have a partition on the hard drive markes "system restore" or the likes. If not, you should have the O.E.M. (CD-ROM) that came with the system that will also let you re-install the operating system. A word of caution, if you try and re-install the O/S without the orgional CD-ROMS you may not have all the correct hardware drivers.
