Can not boot from Win XP Pro without an auto restart


Hi Jeff,

I see you are having issue installing windows, getting an error the the Boot Manager is missing...

The windows Disc that you have is this a burnt copy? possible that the installation files on the Windows you have is incomplete.

But if I may ask before you tried installing this Windows what windows did you have on your computer?

Have you tried booting the disc directly from the CD drive instead of installing it from within windows.

Go into BIOS and change the boot configuration of you Computer make sure the the CD/DVD drive is selected as the primary boot option before the hard drive, once that is done restart your computer make sure that you Windows disc is in the cd/dvd drive, you should get a prompt on the upper left saying to boot from cd press any key - press Enter right away once you see that prompt this should boot from the disc for the installation to continue but if still it looks for the Boot Manager the copy of your installation disc maybe incomplete.

Also you can try to wipe clean you hard drive and try again again with the installation.

NTLDR missing on XP desktop


NTLDR is the boot loader for windows XP. This is the part the kick starts the entire process of XP loading. It is located at C:\NTLDR One of the easier ways to fix this is Either boot in to the recover console from a Windows XP disc, or download Hiren Boot CD, burn it to a disc. Insert the CD into your Dell and reboot the computer. Note you may need to enter BIOS and enable boot to CD/DVD. Once at the Hiren menu, select Boot Mini XP. Once the Mini XP loads you can copy NTLDR loader from the mini xp to your C:\ drive. Then remove the disc and reboot the computer.

When i turn my xp on i get a fatal error 0x2. can this be fixed


Yup it sure can simply re-install your os if its a xp download tiny xp rev 10 from a bit torrent site. If the computer has vista or win 7 installed you will need to find a windows 7 disc after downloading it go back to the bit torrent site and download removewat it delets the windows activation technologies. To install a os put your boot disc in the cd drive press enter when promt delete all the old partitions(data) install the os on the blank hdd space it should take it from there! hope this helps.

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

My computer is an everex running windows xp home edition. My computer will not do anything keep stating it is restarting setup. Then it freezes, it will not let me safe booth or do anything but turn it off...


Ok it needs to have a file disabled that says " restart on faults."
To get to it. Put the XP disc in the drive with the computer turned off.
Start the computer. It should ask if you want to hit any key to boot off the disc.If so tap any key.
(If it does not ask as above you need to change the way the computer boots.. Turn it off. As it restarts tap the delete key to enter the BIOS. In that window you will see a tab 'boot order" Click the tab and follow the instructions to make the DVD or CD drive the first device to boot from. Then the hard drive 2nd.
the instructions are usually in a littlesquare box bottom right and may be using the - and + keys or page up and page down keys to change the order.
When you get the order correct, escape from the BIOS and SAVE what you have done by clicking on save and exit.
The machine will boot off the disc and offer a repair option. The os you select is 1.

My system is asking me to search for a genuine microsoftware.


If your system came with a reinstall disc than I would try to reinstall the system disc again. Maybe some of your programs were affected by a virus or deleted by mistake. There is a file missing somewhere that is needed to authenticate the booting of your system file.
