Hi rab, windows in general will not allow you to go back wards to ME. Some laptops & other systems place a hidden partition at the top of the drive. These hidden partitions normally are around 2-4Mb in size. (Not enough for windows to finish install). So go to the link provided & create a bootable CD/DVD.
Darik's Boot And Nuke will completely erase the drive, (Including any hidden partitions). You can than install ME without an any issues. Download Darik's Boot and Nuke 1.0.7

My computer starts on first attempt only


Hello the homepage is here:

Try to renew the graphic driver by:

Select windows xp.
Open the vga folder and click on global for download.
Unzip the file before you install.
Uninstall the old driver before you install the new.

The fault could also be the power supply, or a ram module failing.
I recommend at least 2 gb ram, for a smooth running system.

You can add a graphic card in the pci-e socket on the mainboard for better performance instead useing the onboard graphic.

Just make sure the windows system is driver supported.

Good luck

Windows xp2 installation problem


Try reformating it and install Win XP again and see if you have same problem. If you then try to get copy of Win XP SP3 and try installing it see if it works. If you still have hang up problem try running chkdsk r.....it will fix errors on the disk and will attempt to recover bad sectors on your hard drive if any are detected!
I know of 2 ways to run chkdsk r....easier way is using your Windows Xp disc! If you still get hang ups then it might be a hardware issue!

it shouldnt be a problem doing this just depends on how much stuff is stored on it. you can take a toshiba xp disk and format it. Make sure you back up the information before you do on another computer. Windows XP requires a gig of space for updates. Also make sure you have enough physical memory to do so like 256. There should be no activation process of this but if there is need to find the password for the disk. if you have any problems check my website.

Try "right clicking" the installer, then left click "properties" on the menu that appears; this should open the "properties" window. Now click the "compatibilities" tab and see if you can set the system to run "windows XP or Windows 98 mode, this may solve the problem, if not >>> Certain versions of Windows 7 have "Windows XP compatibility mode" programming available for free download from Microsoft.com which should allow your older printer software to run on W-7. Just download and install Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC . Failing all the above, you can probably update the printer for what a "chat" would cost !

Both Windows XP and Windows 7 have a "Settings and File Transfer Wizard". Run the wizard on the "old" computer, and say that you are running it on the old computer, and it will save all your files.
Transport the files to your new computer (DVD-writer or USB memory-stick) and run the wizard, and say that you are running it on the new computer, and "import" your files & settings.

Boot win98


I'm assuming that you mean that the computer itself has no CD or no Floppy drive.
If there is no operationg system, and no way to actually install one, then you are out of luck.
There are external CD drives, but these normally run within Windows--although your computer may allow for their use on startup.
If your computer is new enough and you can enable legacy USB, then you could theoretically copy a Win98 install CD to the USB drive and boot from that.
If you have an operating system installed and your network is running, you can share a CD on another computer and run the setup from that computer by copying the files across the network.

Hi:
Check your memory.
You may not have enough memory to run a video like that.

You need enough memory to be able to cache in memory the file being shown.

Not booting up


The OS doesn't like all the changes that were made. To keep people from cloning hard drives and putting them in whatever machine they want, microsoft winxp recognizes even subtle changes, upgraded cpu, memory video cards etc.

  1. put the hard drive in the old machine
  2. run link
  3. Software
  4. click on Installed Program
  5. click on licenses
  6. .click on report
  7. quick report licenses html
  8. click on print
  9. select page 1
These are the key codes for your machine,
now put hard drive in new machine, boot with xp pro cd and choose repair option. re-enter key code when prompted and telephone Microsoft in activation wizard.

Motherboard upgrade


The different hardware components on the new motherboard require different drivers that what are already loaded on your installation of Windows. My guess is something requires a driver that the base Windows driver install will not cover and as a result errors out and restarts. I too have tried this trick on several occasions, sometimes it work and sometimes it doesn?t; however, the key is similar hardware. My guess would be IDE controller, video, chipset or perhaps USB 2.0 is causing your problem. What you can do perhaps is boot into Windows safe mode and try to figure out what is causing the problem. In the long run it may save time and aggravation by just reinstalling Windows ?? Let us know how it turns out.
