No you cannot use CTRL+F11 on the new hard drive simply because the hard is empty. Give me your full name, telephone number, email and your home address. I will send you all the disks that you needed for your dell system.

You could image or ghost the old drive, but you need to have access to it from another system with storage to save the information as there no way to have both drives installed in this model. I believe the easiest and preferred method would be to perform a clean install. You can use a borrowed OS CD provided you have your own product key. You could then get an external USB enclosure to connect your old drive to retrieve data.

My dell insprion mini 1011 wont load at all not even safe mode i tried ctrl + f11 that didnt work and i keep getting a screen that says Stop : c000021a [ Fatal System Error] Plz help


If the ctrl+f11 is not working then the there is dell default partition.. You have to reinstall the OS completely... If your computer is still under warranty call dell tech support they will replace the hard drive.... No warranty means try to get a external dvd drive from friends and install the OS to the computer

DELL Inspiron disk failure how to recover OS in new hard disk?


Hello,

Unfortunately you will need the restore disk to correct this problem. Even if you copy the old disk to the new, chances are you will copy the corrupt files and have TWO bad copies of xp. You can order the restore disk from Dell on average about $30.

Good Luck

Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."
Just make sure you have saved all your data before doing that.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.

If you purchased your I6000 after 2005, then it still has the PC Restore option. For Dell system with Windows XP, your can restore your computer to factory settings by pressing CTRL+F11 when you see the page after the big DELL Logo. It's a BLACK SCREEN with a blue bar at the top and it has www.dell.com written in white. Usually this screen will show up in between the DELL Logo and Windows Logo.

How to Install a new HD on Dell Inspiron 6000?


You can always parition the drive, and install both Ubuntu and XP (dual boot).

Yes, you will be able to access the files (providing the drive isn't totally crashed), although Ubuntu may not "know" what the files are.
