    no i am not trying to install linux..

    Only Win Xp is required...

    Setup starts.. goes on...lastly the windows setup restarts the system its then that the screen is going blank.



    after hitting reset button setup again starts and this phenomenon continues

  • Siddharth Utsav Jan 09, 2009

    the partition on which i'm trying to install Win Xp is 10 gb only.

    is it BIOS problem or RAM needs to be cleaned?

  • Siddharth Utsav Jan 09, 2009

    Windows Xp setup begins and nearly gets 95% complete..

    After The forced restart by windows xp setup the system does not boot Windows XP... monitor don't show display...i.e. 1st time boot dos'nt suceed....reset button plainly restarts the XP setup once again...

    yes, what's all this 'forced restart' nonsense?
    Don't get impatient and stop these processes when they are happening.. I suggest you format and start again.
    It's possible that the XP disk isn't being read properly so maybe try another XP disk..

    And by the way, having a
    too small of a partition is also asking for trouble.

  • sxxxs May 11, 2010

    What do you mean by forced restart?

  • sxxxs May 11, 2010

    If you’re running XP,
    you should only partition 50gigs or so. Use the rest for storage. Having a too
    big of a partition will give you problems in the long run.

    Why did you partition it? Are you putting linux on the other partition? if so format the whole drive, put xp on it, then use the linux boot disk to setup and install on a separate partition.
    Also, after the setup has finished, you have to go back into bios and change the boot order back from cdrom as the first boot device, just reset default settings..

Hi there

I think it may be a graphics problem. May be the XP drivers are not compatible with your machine graphics card.
You could try this to solve it ...

From the web, possibly on another PC that's got the internet, download the graphics driver for your machine and save it to a USB disk.

Once the set up is complete, try booting into safe mode (press F8 on boot, then select boot into Safe Mode)

Now try running the driver from the USB disk (or copy it to C: drive first then run it).

Step one is tosimply boot from the Windows installation CD and eventually the Windows XPSetup program will begin:clip_image002.jpgAfter acceptingthe EULA you'll be presented with a list of prior Windows installations:clip_image004.jpgWe want to installa fresh copy of Windows XP, so press the Escape key (ESC).The next screen showsus the available drives and partitions:clip_image006.jpgIn order to forcea reformat, we're going to delete the destination partition and recreate it.Click on the drivethat you want to install to, and press "D":clip_image008.jpgPress Enterto confirm that you want to delete the partition. Since this is a destructiveoperation (all information on the partition will be erased), Windows XP Setupasks again, just to be sure:clip_image010.jpgPress "L"to delete the partition.Now you've got anunpartitioned hard disk. Windows XP Setup now presents you with the list ofdrives and partitions again:clip_image012.jpgSelect theunpartitioned space, and type "C" to create a partition.

Acer aspire 5600. Did a system restore and the computer would not start the windows programme then stopped trying and comes up with 'ntldr is missing' and won't get past that. Any advice would be much...


Sometimes the only way to repair XP is to reinstall. You do not have to wipe your partition and start over. Just as with previous versions of Windows you can reinstall right over top of an existing setup. This has the advantage of retaining your installed applications, data and settings. You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install. You will need to reinstall SP2 and any Critical Updates from the Windows Update Site. Be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable to the Blaster and Welchia worms. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first. Then visit the Windows Update Site to patch your system It is always prudent to backup important data before you make changes to XP. There are two approaches. The first one should be used if you can still boot to your Windows Desktop. Simply pop the XP CD into the CD-Rom drive and select Install->Upgrade[recommended]. This will install XP overtop of itself in the same way as upgrading from a previous setup. However if your version is an OEM version then you will not have this option. If you do not see the option to Upgrade[recommended] DO NOT choose New Install as that will either overwrite your current setup completely or give you a dual boot setup. Also if you have an older version of XP and have upgraded to a new service pack you will get a message stating that a newer version of Windows was found and you will not be able to run the Upgrade.

1-Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key
2-You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed
3-
The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.
Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.
When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.

Hello, how to install windows xp?

These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.

I have 40gb hdd.need a partition scheme for windows xp such that i have 17GB gb for my games THANK YOU


Using the Windows XP installation disk, procede to install windows normally. In the windows setup you will get a list of options. Choose "C" to create partition. Create a 20GB partition. When that is done create another 20GB partition unless you plan on installing another Operating System such as Windows 7 later. If you want to keep XP and install Windows 7 at a later date on the same PC, then Set up 2 - 10GB partitions for Operating Systems and 1 - 20GB partitions for games. Make sure to install the games on the 20GB drive letter only so that Windows has enough space to run.

How to install xp in HP Pavilion dv6 1030 us Laptop and how to repartition my C: drive especially I have still 150 GB free space in C drive Please help me in this case Thanks in advance.


get a winxp installer CD, you can repartition your drive on the first part of the winxp installation process. Prepare your drivers for your machine especially the network and USB drivers which you will need to copy and transfer files firstly.
If u meant of installing an additional OS like winxp to your extra space, you need a boot loader to switch between OSes.hope this helps

Hdd does not setup xp


You can use Partition Magic. By this software, you can repartition your HDD & Hide the partition that have BAD sector. Make a new partition without bad sector space & active it as a primary partition. That's ok. Now you can install XP.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2


I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51521-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3369431&os=228&lang=en extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps
