Cannot install ANY Windows OS on Aspire One AOA150


I have run into several issues with installing the OS with a USB on the Acers....I got around it by using an external dvd drive. I picked one up for around 45 bucks on ebay....booted off that and the install went through without incident.

How to repair workstation, os are win2000 pro in workstation


do you want to reactivate the win220 pro installation on the harddisk which now you cannot access?
insert win xp pro install cd and run the repair process
or
if you have partioned the harddisk, simply do a new install on another partition, mark this active and now you should be able to boot up and access the old installation.
copy the non-microsoft programs plus personal data (everything that is not in the windows folder) to the new installation,
then run every single program from the new installation


good luck

IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop Os Install Impossible


You probably need an OEM version of XP...not that IBM version. If you buy an OEM version, you can use it many computers. A real XP disc will partition, format, and delete partitions on any functioning Hard drive. Don't buy a recovery disc, please. That just sounds WRONG.

A cheaper solution might be a new Hard Drive...but I don't trust your IBM version of XP.

Hard drive not working


hi im josh in cebu phils.Friend if that happens whrein your 2nd hdd dont detect. Try to use these solutions. Check first the jumper of the hardisk whether it is stated as slave or master. if 2nd disk is master the jumper should be in the master and if it is slave the jumper must be slave. or try to use another IDE cable. put them as both master the first hdd in first ide slot and your 8 GB 2nd hardisk in 2nd slot as master also. or try to enter bios setup utility then try to check or detect the both device.thats all good luck

Os istallation problem


Hi Prashant

This will apply is you are using a SATA drive and are attempting to install Windows XP:

In the box your motherboard came in, there should be a 1.44Mb floppy disk (Also called a stiffy). This will have the driver for XP to be able to read your SATA controller. If you do not have this "stiffy", either contact the hardware manufacturer or check their website for a download.

When Windows XP setup starts, and you are greeted with the blue screen, press the "F6" button when prompted to do so - to make XP setup allow you to install a 3rd party driver SCSI or RAID controlled. This you have to do within a few seconds of setup starting, so make sure to look carefully. The message will appear in the bottom of the screen.

This applies for IDE / ATA HDD:

Ensure that the HDD is being properly picked up by the BIOS. If not, ensure that all connections are good. If they are, test with another, known good, HDD to check whether your HDD is not maybe at fault.

Vista drivers


Go to the Gigabyte website and check for Vista drivers based on the motherboard model #. If not available there use a program like aida32 or fresh diagnostics to identify the ethernet make and model and go to that manufacturer's site for the Vista driver. You may also be able to just explore the cd that came with the motherboard to find the ethernet driver folder and see if a Vista driver is there and manually install it without using the normal gui install interface like in XP.

A7V8X NOTHING HAPPENING,


When a power supply goes out the way yours did, it's going to fry the MB 99% of the time. So you're going to need a new MB. It's possible that you CPU is ok, but that could also go too. I would replace the MB first, then the CPU if that doesn't work.
