SOURCE: CD rom can't read CD XP

TAKE THE CD-ROM DRIVE OUT AND REBOOT THE SYSTEM. WHEN THE SYSTEM ARRIVES AT THE GUI SCREEN, GO TO SETTINGS FROM THE START MENU, MAKE SURE THAT IT HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SYSTEM DEVICE MANAGER OR AT LEASE DISABLED. REBOOT SYSTEM AGAIN. CHECK MY COMPUTER ICON TO SEE IF IT IS MISSING. IF IT IS GOOD. NEXT PHYSICALLY REINSTALL THE DEVICE AS THOUGH IT IS A NEW DEVICE. REBOOT THE SYSTEM LET THE OPERATING SYSTEM DETECT THE DEVICE AND INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FOR IT. GO BACK TO MY COMPUTER AND SEE IF IT IS BACK IN THE CONFIGURATION. IF IT IS GOOD. OPEN CD ROM DRIVE PLACE THE DISK YOU ARE TRYING TO READ AND SEE IF IT DOES. IF IT DOES GOOD IF IT DOESN'T THEN YOU CD ROM IS BAD AND YOU NEED TO REPLACE IT.

I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

It is not clear what you mean by restore here... do you want to salvage you r personal data on laptop or just want to restore the OS... which you said you have installed XP.
the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.

I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

How to reinstell window xp .starting stage to finish


Insert Windows XP Disc
Boot from CD when prompted
Windows Will then Load Files
after loading it will come up with prompts.
One may be, Do you wish to repair if you see this press escape :)
then it will scan and bring up partitions (HDD's)
You should only have one. unless u have more than one hdd
select the "C:" and press D then Enter and L
Then Hit Enter it will ask if u wish to Quick Format or Format.
Select Quick (its faster)
then windows will install files, and reset.
when it boots up it will do its own thing for about 5 minutes (approx.)
then it will ask you for the CD Key, Name and Location, Network Preferences (only if it installed your device drivers).
Then it will ask for Time, probably not in that exact order.
then it will finish providing everything went good.
then will reset and you will have install all of your drivers and software.

How to format drive so to install xp on 5515


If you are Windows XP bootable CD with u,

first u restart ur computer and change the boot priority in the BIOS setup . Then insert the bootable cd and restart computer.

When some message comes in the screen, regarding bootable cd, press any key for installation,

It will take some time to copy installation files, then configure computer hard disk.

Then u have to agree the continuation of installation by pressing F8.
It will ask u either to repair or install Windows
press appropriate keys for that.
It will show the disk partitions and lets u with options of creating ,deleting paritions .
if u want a partition, then select any large partition and press C and type the amount of memory(in MegaBytes) u want for the partition
After finishing creating partitions,
select any partition and press enter for Windows installation in that partition. and select "format and install" option . It will format that partition and restarts . there is nothing to do more .
After restarting , it takes about 40min to install(times inversly proportional to the processor configuration), it asks for the serial /product key fo ur windows bootable cd, and some general settings about time,time zone,username,passwords etc.
After that , Windows would get completely installed.
Then insert ur motherboard CD for installing driver for (audio,graphics,LAN etc)

Then ur system is ready with Windows.
Ask me if u have any difficulty while installing...

Can I foramt Vista Partitions using xp cd?


Yes, Insert the Dell XP disc, and when your computer first stars, in the right hand corner there should be setup and boot devices. Choose boot devices and run off the disc. After that, there will be an option to Format All your drives, (even some you might not know about :P). From there you can install XP onto your laptop.

New Hard Drive, system recovery problem


The systems disc is for the drivers and utilities, and, yes, there should have been two discs with the machine. The A45 is new enough that it should have come with an XP disc, not 98. I believe there was a mix up and you have the wrong disc. If you can get the operating system to load with the recovery disc you have, then you can get the drivers at the link below. Some two disc sets will not load an operational system unless you have both discs. Since you were running XP before, I don't think you're going to be happy with 98. I'm going to suggest that you purchase an XP disc, or contact Toshiba, and let them know that the wrong disc came with the machine, they might send you the right disc. If you do have to purchase an XP disc, simply load the system, then go to the link bellow and download the drivers. If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask.
