Question about Avanquest DISK COPY & CLEAN (WIN 98,ME,2000,XP,VISTA) for PC (1391)

Disk boot failure

I copied my 60 gig hardrive to my new 500 gig and everything worked out perfect. I unpluged my old hardrive and changed my new hardrive to the SATA 1. Well when I booted it up it gave me this message:
'DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER'

So I have to boot my machine up with the XP disk in. You have a quick solution?

Hi,

Technically you can copy all the data from one to another hdd but not the operating system

You have to install your operating system (windows, linux or MAC) on your new 500gig hdd and then copy your data from 60gig hdd.

Can i remove a pirate copy of windows 7 and replace it with my genuine copy of windows xp


Hello,
you would need to insert to XP disc in the cd drive and reboot the pc. As the pc reboot whatch for "Press any key to boot from disk". This will make the pc bypass the hard drive and load the boot file from the XP disk. Once you have answered the inital start questions, it will give the option to format the hard drive or create an extended drive. If Win 7 is not needed any more, I strongly suggest doing the format and have a fresh, new install of XP, Genuine copy.

Good luck.
N.I.T.

Hi Baluchandra,

There are several things you can try. Download Piriform's CCleaner. You can find it here:

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Once installed clean the hard drive. This will clean all the caches and temporary file. Also inside CCleaner there is a Startup button that will show you everything that starts when you boot up Windows. Uncheck any third party software that yo do not use or that does not need to be running. Don't uncheck anything that is a system file, only uncheck the programs that you are sure that does not need to be running.
After you have done this Defrag the HDD. In most case this will help your system performance greatly. If the system still locks up, there is a very good chance that you have a virus or some form of malware. A great site that will help you step by step with virus and malware removal is:

http://www.whatthetech.com/

It is a forum based site that has experts that will step you through the removal process and check your system for anything that may be wrong.

Hope this helps you

Unique customer Registration for MYOB Plus 11 I used MYOB 7 for years, and it worked all the way up to Windows 7 - now it won't even start. Its time to leave. I have a copy of MYOB Plus 11 that seems to...


Or, just get a version of windows 7 (look for "Windows Anytime Upgrade" on your computer) that can run a virtual XP machine (Pro or Ultimate versions), then download and install the virtual PC hyper-viser kernal and the XP Mode virtual machine.

Next, install your old copy of MYOB 7 into the XP mode virtual machine, copy your data files, and it should work....

EXPLANATION OF "WHY": MYOB 7 was actually meant to run on windows 95/98 machines, and this wasn't a problem in XP, because it could run a program that would basically emulate all of the win95/95 API's, under which MYOB 7 could run. Starting with windows vista, those old API's and emulation programs were basically tossed. Running the program under a virtual XP machine will give your old programs, like MYOB 7, access to those old API's. BTW, once the program is installed, it should auto register with windows 7. After which it will run in the win 7 interface almost as if it were a native program (will take longer to load as it has to load XP OS too).

One note, any custom forms (invoices, etc) may not work after copying them to the new installation of MYOB. Change their file attributes from Read Only (uncheck that box from within the files' properties dialog, via windows file explorer).

Oh, you'll definitely want as much RAM in your computer as you can get in there. XP mode will take a minimum of 512MB, but it'll be slow unless you set it up for at least a gig of ram.

I have office home and student 2007 on CD how do i load this onto my netbook


You will need to have an external CD drive. Netbooks were designed compactly and the price lower to function more as internet devices than computers. The first option you have is to buy an external USB CD Drive (this is the first recommendation I make, you will need it in the future to look at movies, music cd's, etc and its a good investment ) A very good model that allows you to read and more importanty WRITE cd/dvd's is available at bestbuy for 65$ The link to it is http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Velocity+Micro+-+VMdrive+8x+External+USB+2.0+DVD-RW/CD-RW+Drive/9341107.p?id=1218087882490&skuId=9341107&st=USB CD Drive&contract_desc=null

You have a few work arounds that may work, depending on your technical skill If you have a flash drive and another desktop or laptop with CD drive, you can copy the contents of the CD onto the flash drive using Roxio CD copier and creating an image of the disk. You will need to use make data disk and make Image on your flash drive. The drive must be 8 gig in size or larger (Flash drive). YOu will need to then use flash drive in Netbook. Find the drive and setup file and run. If you are reusing the copy and it is still installed on another machine when you validate it will negate both copies assuming your copy is pirated. So you will need to make sure you have it uninstalled on other computer. You can also try connecting the netbook to your desktop/laptop with CD drive via Network cable. If you are using Windows Vista on both machines plugging in teh cable should do a self detect. The netbook should show up as a device in COMPUTER on your old machine. You can then insert the CD and try and change the install location from your old C: drive to the Netbook. The other option you have is to contact Microsoft directly. They can give you (email you a link) to a full downloadable version once they verify you have a valid license. You will just click on this link via your email on netbook and it will download the software directly to your Netbook. Go to this link and under Products section choose Email or Chat with Microsoft agent. Then tell them what you need and provide your license key in the email or chat for verification you have a licensed product. http://support.microsoft.com/gp/ContactDownloads

How copy ALL My Documents to removable disk Microsft Works


okay, assuming you have your removable disk attached to your computer and a drive letter is assigned to it (let's say K: for example) - open up Windows explorer and click on My Documents on the left side - then hit Ctrl-A - you should now see everything in the My Documents folder is now highlighted on the right side - now right click over the highlighted items and choose (left-click) Copy from the popup menu - this will copy EVERYTHING in your My Documents folder -

after the copy completes (could take a while if you have a lot of items) then in Windows Explorer click on the drive letter of the removable drive (K: in my example) - then right click over the area on the right and choose Paste - this will now put all the copied items to the removable drive

A few things to consider
- you didn't specify what kind of documents you're looking to copy so the instructions above will copy EVERYTHING under my documents - this includes My Pictures, My Videos, etc. and any and all folders or files under My Documents
- also this procedure COPIES the files to the removable drive - leaving the original files intact on your hard drive - if you want to MOVE them to the removable drive then choose Cut instead of Copy in the step above

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing 17 Deluxe Does not start


Hello,

Assuming you have not switched to Windows Vista with the new hardrive - as Mavis Beacon 17 does not work in that platform - then-
it sounds as though the file is corrupted. I would uninstall and reinstall the product. Unfortunately, difficult to do with out a cd or good original disk to start from. If you have your order number or purchase numbers when you bought your download, then customer support should help you get a clean download.


Here is some information on system configuration- it is similar for the setup of Mavis beacon 17
