SOURCE: CF 27 Original Boot Disk

Hi,
What OS did you load? It originally came with either Win 95 or Win 98. I believe I've got the restore cd for the CF-27 Win 98 at the shop. I could burn you a copy.
BTW, how did you get it to load from a usb cdrom?

Some bios menu allows you to boot from USB. (Some are locked this option by makers.)

Run safety mode and try again to see whether your DVD rom is working.

Best way will be go to device manager; go to properties of DVD rom; go to driver and click roll back driver.

If this is not working (in case), uninstall driver and reinstall it.

Dell bootmgr is missing


Most likely cause is that the boot order in the BIOS is set up for the HDD first. When turning on the unit, press the key needed to enter setup. Once in setup, search thru the menus for the boot order. Choose the CD drive as the first boot device, then the hard drive as second. Save and exit the setup. When rebooting, ensure the WIN XP CD is in the drive. When the screen says, "press any key to boot from CD", press a key and the WIN XO CD should take over and start the install. Once WIN XP starts installing, follow directions. On each restart after that, DO NOT press the key to boot from CD. WIN XP setup will handle everything until the reinstall is complete. After you are done, you may choose to go back to setup and change the boot order back, but it is not really necessary. The only time you will get the "press and key to boot from CD" message is when there is a bootable CD/DVD installed in the drive. Otherwise, it overlooks it and goes to the next boot device (HDD).

Irql not less or equal blue sreen cf-51


reformatting the disk / restore computer back to company settings...is only the resolution for this...

To reinstall your operating system, you must have a CD drive in your multimedia pocket.

Note: CF-51 (Mk2) and CF-51 (Mk3) can also boot to an external Panasonic USB CD drive.

When the laptop is first powered on, the Panasonic name appears in white lettering with the phrase 'Press F2 to enter Setup' directly below it. When this phrase appears on the screen, immediately press F2 on your keyboard. Put the Panasonic recovery CD in your drive and use the arrow keys to move to the boot tab. Change the order of boot so the CD drive boots first. To do this, highlight the CD drive and press F6 until CD drive is the No. 1 listing. Press F10 to save your changes, exit and follow the instructions when your CD starts running.

I am trying to install win xp on a dell optiplex 760, but it can't seem to boot from the cd even after I set the boot options to boot from cd. It also can't read the boot files from the usb flash...


unless the usb drive is formatted correctly the computer will not see the files as a bootable directory. if the cd is not reading try usig an external drive or loading the disc into another computer and see if it works.

In ASUS Eee pc 901 i had ubunt and tried to install win xp h.ed sp1 included from usb,win copied fails and restart the comp and it tells NTLDR is missing press any key to restart tried whid and whidout...


XP has a problem installing directly from (non cd) usb devices by default. try it with a usb external cdrom and an actual windows cd (known to work) or reinstall ubunt and run windows as a virtual machine or if you are really into computers and really really need to install xp from usb try the link below. (good luck)

HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.

You should provide either CD/DVD rom to boot your sytem in bootable disc.
And you should provide windows XP/2000 bootable disk.

You will need:

CD/DVd Rom
Bootable windowsxp/2000 to reinstall your system.

Note; reformatting or reinstalling your system all files will be remove. you should back up important files before doing.

Reinstalling windows xp on a new hard drive - Thinkpad t30


If you can get your hands on a Windows XP cd, it will partition and format the drive for you allowing you to install from scratch. You would then just plug in the license key from the sticker on your laptop. As far as the recovery disk on the original CD, there might be an option on bootup that would have you push an F key to access it. Or you can usually order them online. It's not too hard to get the drivers you need from online so I would just go with any XP disk you can get your hands on. You'll be using your own license so you can even borrow one.
