Question about Evesham PC Desktops
Easy. put it in and shut down. remember to back up everything first, or just burn everything you can.
when the pc starts, if it automatically fires up windows the bios has been set to run from harddrive. shut down and when restarting either del or F2 will get into bios.
go thro each page until you see the part on 1st boot device. some will set it to harddrive. bad move. get the first boot device to cd rom, second to your harddrive. save and restart.
the cd will boot and you will get either the logo, or do you want to boot from cd rom
hit return and carry on.
now. when windows shuts down do not touch a thing unless you have to, the screen do you want to boot from cd rom will come up. dont, let it carry on and you will reinstall all the functions of the cd rom
how do i know this, well, my main pc has been rebooted 35 times so far, good old viruses and trogens.
how would we learn without them at all.
oh. when windows wants to load windows it will reconise the origional windows. a point here. if you need to get all the info off a computer, do not load onto the origional windows but make a second system of windows. it will warn you about 2 operation systems. but if you need to recover some things, do it.
also. you know these cheap mp3 players. the one gig ones. they are fantastic to use as removable drives and for a tenner, you get a storage device, also a mp3 player.
now one point. if you had a fault with windows, or a virus or worm, reinstalling windows on the partition will not work.
follow the on screen to delete the partition. it will ask about 3 times are you sure, the last one is press L to delete. do this and remake the partition.
then install windows.
The real safe way is to use a win 98 boot disc. but i found no problems doing it this way.
if you have another mc, make it a slave and format the whole drive.
i hope this helps you
