Of course is possible to install Windos XP in a PenDrive. You have to use the bart PE Builder to create the directory structure and PEtoUSB to put this structure into the PenDrive. It's a really usefull windows.

No. You need 4GB just to install, environmental variables need a place to live that doesn't change and your paging file would eat up any space left. You could try Windows 3.1 or DOS -maybe even Windows 95.

Will a latop work without main local disk


Yes, and can load from an external harddisk (if your BIOS supported to load from external harddisk).
there's nothing special if you run your computer without a harddisk.

Downloaded sp2 to my windows xp home edition when computer restarted i got a blue screen and error coad c000021a (fatal error code ) now i get disk boot failure how do i fix this


Harddisk might have some bad surface areas on it. This could possible due to power surge. Repair the HDD with harddisk tools. To do the repair without the tools try scandisk from the dos promt using boot disk. Reinstall XP with the sp2 and all the softwares that you use. Use repair CD that should do most of the softwares itself and install the others software with the CDs or setup programs on backup disk. Back up all the data before doing the clean install so that you can restore it after clean install.

Power failure right when it gets to one


looks like a windows-related problem.
try if your keyboard works at all by entering bios but do not change anything. just quit saving no changes.
does it work?
if yes, possibly a windows error.
to check :
- try booting from a windows-cd(XP), not from harddisk, without going through install process, execute the repair process instead.
- reboot from your harddisk in safe mode.
everything o.k.?

if still the problem, and don't have any personal data you might loose on harddisk(hdd)
reinstall windows xp anew, but this time let it format the hdd fully, then go on installing a clean, new copy of win XP.
when still facing the problem, plse come again

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

Operating System is not detecting in my Laptop


kiran,
Windows XP not able to access SATA hard drive without driver. So it will not recognize your HDD if its of SATA interface.
  • If you can enter in BIOS setup, find out SATA option and if you find make it disable. Then try to install.
There are also other ways to fix this problem, if you want more help Just ask me.

Thanks
