    dDid you remove cd drive hardware (the physical drive) or software, and exactly what do you mean when you say "system" is not working? The machine itself or the operating system?

How to reinstall windows xp thinkpad x41


How to Reload Windows XP Without Removing Files Deleting system files, modifying the registry and installing incompatible drivers to Windows XP can damage the integrity of the operating system, rendering it inoperable. Virus infections are often responsible for making the aforementioned changes to a system, but employees who have administrative access to the workstation can make deleterious modifications to the OS as well. Reinstalling Windows XP can repair the OS, but if work-related files are stored to the system partition, all of the data will be erased during the installation process. To reload Windows XP without losing files, you can perform an in-place upgrade, also known as a repair installation.

Step 1
Insert the Windows XP CD into the optical drive and then press "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to restart the computer. Step 2Press any key when prompted to load the contents of the disc. Press "Enter" on the Welcome to Setup screen.
Step 3 Read the license agreement, pressing "PgDn" to scroll down the page. Press "F8" to agree to the terms. The CD will search for previous installations of Windows XP. Step 4
Press "R" to repair the selected operating system. The disc will begin reinstalling the operating system to the hard drive without affecting personal files. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the repair installation. Step 5
Log in to Windows XP and sign on to the Internet when installation completes. Click "Start," "All Programs" and then "Windows Update." Step 6
Click "Scan for Updates" to search for applicable service packs and hotfixes to reinstall to the OS. Step 7
Click "Install Now" to bring the in-place upgrade up-to-date.
Things Needed
  • Windows XP CD

Tip
  • Make sure you have your Windows XP product key (found on the CD cover or on the computer case) available prior to reinstallation.

Warnings
  • If possible, back up your files previous to the installation in case something goes awry during the process.
  • You will need to reinstall all non-native programs and removable devices after performing an in-place upgrade.

Bsod, error code:0x00000024, hdd problem booting xp os


Can you do this

Boot from the Windows XP CD.
Watch for a Press any key to boot from CD... message similar to the one shown above.
Press a key to force the computer to boot from the Windows CD. If you do not press a key, your PC will continue to boot to the Windows XP installation that's currently installed on your hard drive. If this happens, simply reboot and try to boot to the Windows XP CD again.
When the Windows XP Professional/Home Setup screen appears, press R to enter Recovery Console
Select your OS and enter password (if needed)
When you reach the command prompt type the following and then press Enter:
expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll
Using the expand command as shown above, d represents the drive letter assigned to the optical drive that your Windows XP CD is currently in. While this is most often d, your system could assign a different letter. Also, c:\windows represents the drive and folder that Windows XP is currently installed on. Again, this is most often the case but your system could be different.
If you're prompted to overwrite the file, press Y.
Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.

Put your Windows XP disk in the drive then restart the system. If it is the original disk it and you are just trying to restore the system to Factory Original, It will start from the disk and ask you what you would like to do to restore system.

Removal of incomplete, unwanted os setup


Hey sorry about your pc sir..

OK first let me explain to you the problem you are having and the various ways we can solve it ..

ok the reason some of the files were removed is cause they were infected..
The cd you have is windows Xp, but during windows updates you updated with service pack 2, so obiously the system will ask for windpws xp cd with service pack 2,, (MICROSOFT BUGS :( )

now you have a mbr with 2 operating systems. cause the main mbr is non functionaly a secondary oe was created leaving your current file system intact, but with the bad effects of having 2 operating systems on the same partation.. hence slow sloppy behaviour..

we can remove boot sector and rewrite mbr to remove the bad operating system but that would not help the speed..

Here is what i believe is your best solution and the one i recommend..

1.) BURN all your important data to a dvd or cd so you wont loose it

2.) Boot off the the windows xp cd.

3.) delete the entire partation and format the drive(full format)

4.) reinstall windows and drivers and software..

NB.. when windows ask if you want to repair select no and install a fres copy,, when it ask if you want to leve the file system intact say no, delete the partation, and it will say unpartationed space, hit enter there and select full format..
