You must first copy the contents of the CD-ROM that you want to copy to the CD-ROM staging area, and then record a new CD-ROM using this data.



1. If you have a standard CDROM drive as well as a CD-R drive, drag the contents of the host CD-ROM to the CD-R drive icon. If you have only a CD-R drive, you can manually copy the contents of the original CD-ROM to a folder on the hard disk, and then drag the data to the CD-R drive that has had the original media removed.


NOTE: You can also right-click the files, click Send To, and then click the name or drive letter of your writable CD drive to copy the files.



To initiate the record process, either right-click the CD-R drive, and then click Write these files to CD, or double-click My Computer, click the CD-R drive, and then click Write these files to CD on the File menu.

Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

You can go to compaq.com and order the system restore disk if you can't find the one that came with the computer.

Ok, thanks for the response. now, can i do a clean reinstall of xp, and if so, how?. do you have a link of the steps? thanks, tommy


Hi,

Re-installation of Win XP is simple. First you need to back-up all your important files and secure your XP cd and device drivers. If you have done all, just follow these steps:

1) Insert XP CD on CD/DVD ROM and boot from it.

- to boot from CD/DVD ROM you need to press F11 during start-up. This will open the boot sequence and will let you choose which device to boot from. Just choose CD/DVD ROM from the list

2) A blue screen with white text below will appear. Just wait for the instructions to come and follow it carefully.

3) The first instruction would be "Press Enter to install Windows XP". As what it states, press ENTER.

4) The next instruction would be to partition your drive. I recommend yu make a partition if you have a large capacity storage. Just follow the instructions on how to do the partition.

5) There are several simple instructions after you make a partition and make sure you follow it. You will see copying of files, still in blue background and white text.

6) After finish copying of files, the computer will restart automatically. This time, let the computer boot by itself. Don't boot from the CD/DVD ROM. This will go inside your Windows XP operating system and will continue to install remaining things.

7) Once again, just follow instructions like entering time, date, administrator passwords and so on.

8) You'll be waiting like 39 minutes more for this.

9) When it prompts that your computer is now ready, go ahead and install your device drivers.

10) That sums up the summary for the installation.

Hope it helps.

Let me know.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I purchased two LG 22X DVDRW and installed both of them. I have difficulty in copying a DVD to an external hard drive. On the target selector it only showed :D,:E two choices. But on the source it has :D...


You must have DVD copying/burning software. If you have windows XP or Vista you can't do it. I think with windows 7 you finally can. You need Nero, Roxio, or some similar program. You can only do CD's with the operating system, not DVDs.

How do I format a disc (DVD or CD) on Windows XP?


You only format a CD/RW or a DVD/RW, which are re-writeable.

Regular discs do not need to be formatted (CD-R or DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+R DL, etc.).

To format the DVD/RW idisc, use the "burner" software ( Sonic?, Nero?) and choose [Tools] [Erase Disc] (erase is the same as format)

Hi, i am unable to install windows XP in pavilion dv6500 laptop. XP set up is not detecting the hard disk at all can you help me ?


Some copys of windows XP can not detect a SATA hard drive what you need to do is get hold of a later dvd copy of XP only the lastist dvd copys of XP are setup to detect SATA hard drives. It has to be a DVD copy as the CD copys do not detect SATA drives. Find some one with a new computer with SATA drives that has windows XP installed on it and try there copy of XP on your computer. Hopes this helps.
