Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I'm trying to instal Wondows XP on a Dell Mini 1012 netbook via an external CD-Rom drive. Everything works fine until I get to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.Both F8 to agree and page down do nothing. I can, however press escape to cancel. I'd really like to be able to get this working. Any ideas?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

Sounds like the keyboard mapping on your laptop is non-standard in some way, and so the installer is waiting for F8 coming from a different key. Try the other function keys and work your way around the keyboard until you find what F8 is mapped to.
It is also possible you have a bad keyboard, but this is pretty rare.

try making an image from your old HDD save it to an external HDD then install the new HDD and restore the image on it.
you can do an image for HDD using Ghost or Acronis third party software you may find them on Hiren's bootable cd
