I want setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23 i can pot cd & restart press f12 but not start setup plz halp me haw can i setup windows xp my ibm thinkpad t23


If your trying to reinstall a new copy of Windows in your computer then first thing you need to do is change the Boot sequence of your computer so it will load the Windows CD you inserted then it will run the set up.

To change Boot sequence:
1. Go to BIOS - Press F1 or F2 (depends on model of your computer) immediately after you turn you computer on
2. Go to Boot Menu on the top of the window
3. Change your Boot priority - make sure your dvd drive is your first or primary boot.
4. Press F10 to save and exit.

Make sure you have your Windows CD inserted before pressing F10 coz your computer will restart and will loadautomatically load and run the Windows Setup

Note: If a message "Press any key to boot from CD" appear on a black screen press any key to start the set up

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

IBM IntelliStation Z Pro 6221


Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
