I deleted too much stuff off my 1g emachine desktop and now it wont even start windows says its missing the boot manager. how can i fix it without a backup disk


Hi ,
Unfortunaly , you can't . You need the install disc . You can retreive existing data by extracting the hdd from your desktop and connect it to a healthy computer . Format the HDD afterwards , put it back into the desktop and launch install disc .

The hard disk from the laptop has died - something to be expected on a laptop this old.
Extremely easy to fix - just buy a new hard disk, put it in the laptop and install whatever version of Windows you like.

Hi,

To my knowledge you cannot upgrade from Windows XP directly to Windows 7. You will have to upgrade to Vista and then to 7. Also there are limitations as to which Windows 7 version (Home, Professional, Ultimate) you can upgrade to from certain Vista versions.

If you dont have any information / data on the PC that you mind loosing, i suggest a clean install of Windows 7 by booting up from the Windows 7 dvd and formating the HDD before the installation procedure.

Windows 7 has a host of built in drivers that will probably cover all of the devices that are present on your system. If not then you can always download the drivers from the manufacturers site for the items that fail to install automatically under 7.

Let me know how it goes.

Hello: I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

Reinstalling XP with a new HDD?


Make a clean installation of XP with prior formating the Hard Disk Partition (where you are goint to install it)

For the driver issue, I am not sure if you have all drivers for your MOBO. (included in MoBo CD) and the driver for LAN Card, VGA or other devices drivers.

Let me know in bit more detail of other drivers which you have and have not? Try surfing the website to locate the exact drivers and most of driver you will get with optimum cost.
Such as download.com or FileHippo.com

There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.
