Re: Cannot load Sylvania CD onto XP windows system
Hi. You normally do not need a driver for MP3 players with XP. You should just be able to plug it in to the USB port, then wait for it to find the new hardware, then it will show as a new drive in 'My computer'

Hi Have you tried to go into your cmos settings and enable the settings to detect your cd rom You should be able to use a external cd rom connected through your USB port to load and re-install windows and your drivers if you have the motherboard cd. The problem is your limited in your options to work from the hard drive but a disk also gives you the option to repair the filing system and replace missing files.
The problem with installing windows on one pc and it not working on another pc is the motherboards are not compatible, and the configuration has to be similar or the same so the hard drive can boot up and communicate between the hardware and software.
Your options are use a CD rom, change your MB or google your problem and hope someone else was able to resolve this issue.
okay this is a confusing post/question. you can always start a machine from bio regardless of what operating system you're running. if you're attempting to boot from the disc, tap f12 @ boot until you get a one time boot menu and choose the dvd/cd drive. that should load the setup file. the windows disc does not load setup onto the hard drive. if you're running xp when you have the option hit 'r' to repair the computer, when you get into command prompt type sfc /scannow. this will search and fix all system files. you can also try chkdsk c: /r this will fix any errors in the file structure. good luck
This means that the system files are corrupt or that the system can not locate the device with the operating system on it. Boot your laptop while pressing F2 and go to the System BIOS. In the BIOS look for boot order or boot sequence. Then select the HARD Disk Drive to be the first booting device and let the CD Drive be the second one and press F10 to save and exit. Observe the results, If it gives you an error message again, try to go back to the BIOS and load Default System settings and restart your laptop again.
If you try all this and you still have the same problem, then organize an XP CD and change the boot device to CD Drive. This will let your laptop boot from the CD. When the CD loads, press enter and after accepting the license agreement (by pressing F8) select "R" to repair your operating system. NOTE: Do not press "R" as soon as the CD finishes loading because this will induse the Automated Repair, and that is not what we want here.... Man, this will work you out of your trouble. Good luck
Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.
If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.
If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.
Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
