Set your bios to boot from disk, install the operating system dvd, and it should boot from the dvd. Follow the instructiones, the entir thing will take 30 minutes or so. Have your serial number ready and you should be good to go.

    Sorry I was busy, Is it loaded on the hard drive in a second partition?, If no then you can't re-install.

    It should be on a separate partition, when you boot up it should say at the bottom of the screen to press F1 or F3, and that will open a screen that will give you choices one of which should be to re install.I am seeing that you don't have the disk so the OS must be on the drive. If not you can borrow an xp and get to the point where you put in your serial numbers, it should be ok being that you already paid for it.,peace Gym

Having problems with windows rootsystem32hal.dll. what the big problem is i dont know if it came with windows xp home edition or if you can reinstall bujt using f12 or do i need a cd?


One of the key design features of Windows is that it supports multiple hardware platforms without the need for complete different versions of the OS. This support is accomplished through the Hardware Abstraction Layer(hal.dll)
You can extract the hal.dll from your Windows Xp Installation CD to the System32 folder through the recover console.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Hi

U can install the windows in laptop also.. But with one condition that u do not connect the laptop to the internet.. If u want to connect means u have to turnoff the automatic updates in ur computer.. My best suggestion is u buy a laptop with preloaded OS.. Because Windows XP home edition will not support some options.. Better u buy a preloaded laptop..
