Add/Remove Window components


Im not sure which file you are referring to but you could just a repair of the installation
this is fot the master boot record

if there are any other files , settings or programs during the repair process options for these should be available

Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.

Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.


Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.

Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.


This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.


If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.


Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.


Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.

The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.


Hope this helps

Doesn't enable virtualization


To determine whether your PC supports hardware virtualization:

Step 1. Does my PC have a CPU with support for hardware virtualization?


Download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool

If you receive the message This computer does not have hardware-assisted virtualization, your computer does not meet the hardware requirement for Windows Virtual PC, but you can still use Windows 7 XP Mode by running this hotfix. Be aware that XP Mode will run much better if hardware-assisted virtualization can be enabled.

If you receive the message Hardware-assisted virtualization is not enabled on this computer, go on to Step 2 below.

If you receive the message This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization, download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.

Step 2. Does my PC BIOS support hardware virtualization, and is it turned on?

Instructions to turn on hardware virtualization in your PC BIOS are specific to OEM models. It is important that after changing your BIOS settings the PC is completely shut down at the power switch before restarting so that the new BIOS settings can take place.

Examples for some models of some computer manufacturer's BIOS settings are below:

Sample instructions for your PC

Expand all

Dell systems

Depress the F12 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select BIOS setup and depress the Enter key

Using the mouse, expand the Virtualization Support menu item by clicking on the plus to the left of Virtualization Support and select Virtualization

Check the Enable Intel Virtualization Technology checkbox

Click Apply

Click Exit

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

HP systems

Depress Esc key when prompted at startup

Depress the F10 key to Configure BIOS

Scroll to System Configuration using the arrow keys

Select Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress the F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Lenovo ThinkPad systems

Depress the blue ThinkVantage key when prompted at startup

Depress the F1 key to enter the BIOS setup utility

Using the arrow keys, scroll to Config and depress the Enter key

Scroll to CPU and depress the Enter key

Scroll to Intel Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress Enter key to continue

Depress F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Acer

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Asus

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Samsung

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Panasonic

Depress the F2 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select Advanced menu in Setup Utility

Change "Intel Virtualization Technology" setting from Disable to Enable

Depress F10 to exit Setup Utility

Select Yes in confirmation menu

Depress Enter to exit confirmation menu.

Please note the instructions above may not work in all cases and consulting with your computer manufacturer may be necessary. Additionally, we expect hardware virtualization to become more available when Windows 7 is shipped, particularly in business-class PCs. For those PCs that come pre-installed with Windows XP Mode we recommend the computer manufacturer turn on hardware virtualization before shipping the PC.


Once you have confirmed your PC supports hardware virtualization
Download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode

hope this helps

Want to re-format MSI Notebook S420. Screen continuously shows windows 'loading' but never boots. I have the recovery CD but because the computer never actually starts, I'm not sure what to do with it!MSI


Hello megan_van

While your laptop is on, eject the optical drive and insert the recovery CD. Turn off your laptop via the power button, and turn it back on. The recovery CD should boot. Follow the on-screen instructions to do a clean install.

If the recovery CD doesn't boot, try holding down the C key after turning on your laptop. If it still doesn't boot, you will have to change the boot order in BIOS. Don't worry, this is easier than it sounds! Follow these instructions:

1. Turn on your laptop, and look for a message that says something like PRESS (USUALLY F2, F8, DEL, ETC.) TO ENTER SETUP / BIOS. Hit that key before the Windows logo appears.

2. After hitting the relevant key, you'll be taken to the BIOS setup utility. All BIOS utilities have different appearances, but it is basically a set of menus containing different settings for your laptops hardware. Somewhere on the screen (usually the bottom), is a set of instructions for navigation your way around the BIOS. Follow these instructions to navigate your way to the option for changing the boot order.

N.B. Since every BIOS setup utility is different, the specifics on where the boot order options are located varies from computer to computer. The menu option or configuration item might be called boot options, boot, boot order, etc. The boot order option may even be located in a general menu like advanced options, advanced BIOS features, other options, etc.

3. Once you've located it, use the navigational controls to place the optical drive above the hard drive (usually the +/- keys). To be certain that the recovery CD boots, it's probably best to move the optical drive to the top of this list.

4. Within the navigational controls, there is usually an option to SAVE & EXIT. Press this key. If there isn't, look for a menu option with the heading EXIT. A SETUP CONFIRMATION box will now usually appear asking you to confrm the changes you've made to the BIOS before exiting.

N.B. The SETUP CONFIRMATION box can sometimes be worded cryptically. Read the message carefully to be sure that you're saving your changes instead of exiting WITHOUT saving your changes!

Your computer should now restart automatically, and the recovery CD should now boot.

Hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

When the computer first boots up, press the F8 key when the eMachines logo is replaced by the first Microsoft screen, then select Safe Mode from the list. If the computer will not boot in Safe Mode, you will need to boot from your Windows CD and select the repair installation option. If you can boot in Safe Mode, you will need to find out what is causing the system to reboot during startup. With the msconfig utility, disable all unnecessary startup programs and services, then try restarting the computer normally. If this works, you need to use the msconfig utility to add the startup programs and services back one-by-one until it fails to boot again (to locate your troublemaker). Keep repeating this until all services and programs (except the one causing the problem) are back in the lineup.
