If you are using 2 hard drives then install Fedora to the 2nd drive. When you boot up it will ask you which os you wish to boot into. Hope this helps.

Looking for drivers to use this monitor with Fedora 20 Linux OS


You don't need drivers. You need to adjust the resolution and refresh rate. If you plug in an old CRT monitor then Linux will probably boot and you can edit the conf file to change the settings. Most LCD monitors require 50-60Hz refresh rate.

How to reformat pentium 4 2.8g to windows xp


Since Windows XP isn't a filesystem, that doesn't quite make sense, but it sounds like you want to find or buy a Windows XP DVD, put it in the machine's DVD drive, enter the BIOS to check your settings and set it to boot from CD-ROM (it works for DVDs too, after all,) save settings and reboot...then install WinXP.

Keep in mind that if you have unsaved data on the system's hard drive, you would want to swap it out for a new one until Windows XP (or Ubuntu, or Fedora 15, much more modern OS which are quite capable of running WinXP programs using a program environment called 'wine' (no relation to drvino.com)) is installed; that way you're not going to overwrite old stuff you wanted to keep.

Then you can install the old drive on whatever interface is handy and migrate your settings over, make backups, use the old drive for pagefile or to try new filesystems and virtualization environments, etc.

How to install linux fedora 7, already i am using windows 7, now i want to use dual os's , please tell me how to install linux.


WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations. 1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways. 2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install. 3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install. 4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing. 5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!

NTLDR means ............New Technology Loader ...........
this is one of the most crucial part of the Windows OS, this specific component looks for the loader of NT(Windows OS) which loads the required OS files of WinXP(earlier it was called WinNT)...the naming legacy is still being followed though the OS has changed from Win95, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Win7....
The only way u can get back this is by re-formating the drive using the WinXP disk....more info ...click the link

WINXP-_CRASH


I wonder if you ever pay attention to what you're doing; if you install a Linux Distribution, it's going to have a non-NTFS boot sector, and moving Windows' original boot sectors around is not guaranteed to work well.

If you pay attention to what you're doing, you should be installing Linux on a fresh disk using a good filesystem like ext3 or ext4 or Sun's filesystem. If you want to run WinXP rather than run applications (games, etc.) under WINE or a VM, you can use Disk Commander or such to boot to the old drive and mask the OS from each others' existence. Likewise you could install, run, etc. Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. from within a VM in WinXP; or install, run, etc. WinXP within a VM in a Linux. If you don't pay attention to what your install means for the system operation, you're going to get surprised.

Unable to install XP.


Unfortunately the only way to downgrade is to reformat your drive and install from the cd/dvd.

Windows not booting


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.

Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.

thanks

When you start your computer Press F2 or F12 to make changes in Boot sequences.Make the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM 1st in the Sequence. Save the Changes and Exit.Before rebooting put the XP CD inside the CD-ROM Drive and reboot.
If you donot have Driver's CD of Motherboard,it is better to make Driver's CD before reinstallation.

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
