Restore disks are not worth a w**k......
all you need is xp disk with a cd key...
you can repair (dos prompt) or reinstall or repair(windows app)same as restore.
you can download xp/xppro of net though it does take a while.
if you have ares you could get off me my pc has been uploading xp pro with sp2 integrated all day and most of the night to various people also xp pro with sp3 integrated I also have iso of xp pro sp3 integrated and registered all you have to do is load it then install updates dont even need the key cos that also is integrated.
can give you links if you want but like I say it takes a while to download.

After installing a new hard drive in my desktop computer, it still does not work. It says no boot device available. Sata's 0 & 1 installed but 2 & 3 uninstalled


No boot device available means the boot device hard drive on your system has no bootable operating system installed on it, or it is faulty. In the BIOS setup program, does the computer recognize the hard drive you installed, and is it included in the boot device list? If you installed a new hard drive because of a failure of the C: drive, the new hard disk does not come with an operating system. You have to install that on the new hard drive from the manufacturer's system restore disks. SATA channels 1 and 2 are just the connections on the motherboard for devices, and usually have a hard drive on one connection and a cd rom drive on the other. Giving the model and manufacturer of your computer might provide more clues.

Diskboot failure insert system disk


What was the problem in the first place? Why are you trying to restore the computer?

Or reading wrong; do you mean the computer will not start? Boot?

Primer:
Disk Boot. -> The bootstrap files on the harddrive.
Bootstrap <- Make it easier to understand?

The basic Windows files.

Can't access restoration on the harddrive with F11? Quite common.
I mean, how crazy is that? Let's put the restoration files, (Basic Windows files), on the harddrive? So if the harddrive goes bad?????

Suggest you use the Restoration Disk.

{Pre-built computer manufacturers were packing the Restoration Disk/s with the computer. As time went by the manufacturers saw the users were not using the disk/s, or loosing them.

Didn't want to use, because of fearing computer damage if they error, or didn't even want to try.

Okay. Put the restoration files on the harddrive, then.
Have the new owner make a BACKUP, when the owner turns the computer on for the first time.
Save a few cents without providing the disk for each computer.
(Take a few cents times 50,000 computers, or more)

Hardly anyone makes a backup disk, when the computer is turned on for the first time. If the harddrive goes bad you cannot access the restoration files.

Computer manufacturers have gone back to packing the restoration disk, with the computer }

What?
Don't have the Restoration Disk? (I won't say anything about not making a backup disk. Could be failure time with it, also)

Go to the back of the computer tower, or up on the side. Write down the Serial Number. It's in the white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
(NO, do not post it on the internet. Only to an authorized HP representative)

Call HP Support.
In the USA call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship. $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.

For other countries use HP Worldwide Support,

Do I think the Restoration Disk will repair the problem?
Dunno. Don't know what the original problem was. You haven't stated it yet.

I have a lsass.exe error message and netbook keeps restarting, it wont boot in safe mode or anything and I have no cd drive either. Please help...


lsass.exe is certainly a virus issue, the actual process isnt really a virus but viruses hijack the process for their own nefarious reasons.
You only have two options really, 1) use a boot disk antivirus (search google for avg boot cd) and then use the restore disks to try and repair the system file (copy the one off the restore disk to replace the corrupt one on your system)
2) Use your restore disks / another installation disk to build a new operating system.

Just remember if you have data on the drive to take it out to get your data off first. Personally I'd take your drive out and put a new drive in, then build a new OS on the new drive, nice clean and fast, then put your data onto it.

Can i use a compaq system restore disk on an emachine? I don't have the boot up disks that i was supposed to create when i got this emachine, but i do have some old compaq ones, both use windows xp os...


You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

After restore with acer discs keep getting disk boot failure. Just fitted new hard drive as old one seized


You instaled the restore disk onthe new HD?

this is a problem with the drive,

try using a different power plug for the drive, check that every thing is pluged in all the way on the drive side and mother board side,
check the jumper in the back of the drive make sure its in the right spot,

If the restore disk worked with the new drive try to rerun them,

It could be a bad drive or bad install,, the restore disk look ok clean?

My computer has a virus, I lost my restore disc. The software to restore the system is on the hard drive. When I boot the system, it sticks in a loop at the user log in. I have the win32.netsky virus.


Hia,

try to boot your computer in safe mode. when computer starts, press F11/F12 key to get this option otherwise you can find this from computer manual or from internet as per your model/brand of PC. also you can try to boot computer only on command promt option, might be this way it will allow you to go on to your hard drive C and then you can copy your restore disk files by dos commands to external hard drive or CD/DVD. also you can copy your data before you wiped out everything and restore system.

if nothing works then get ultimate boot cd from internet, burn on empty disk and boot computer from there. this will definatley lets you in and you can copy all data and restore disk. make sure, you setup boot order as boot from CD and computer will boot from CD directly.

let me know if you stuck soemwhere or any issues.

Thanks.

I have an old Presario 5000 series PC, hard disk crashed, bought a new hard disk and tried to use the Quick Restore CD's to Restore to Factory settings. Can't seem to boot up from Disc 1 of the Quick...


For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

First try a simple windows pc restore, go to the start menu, then to help and restore center and click on "restore my computer to an earlier date" then choose a date before your son mucked up your PC. Boot in safe mode if it wont boot (repeatedly tap f8 during boot)

If this doesnt work ring your pc manufacturer and they will send you restore disks.

If you have built the PC yourself ring microsoft and give them you windows product key and they will send you a new copy of windows.

Brand new v5535 notebook won't set up keeps coming up with error


Try pressing the F8 key while booting, at the boot option page select the last known good configuration and boot from there. If this does not work, press the F8 key while booting and choose boot in safe mode, then go to start/programs/accessorys/system tools/system restore. choose a date that the computer was acting normal and restore to this date. If this does not work do a reinstall with the system restore disk and drive/application restore disk. BPCS
