Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

My transfer disc is not copying on to my new computer.

I had all the info on my old computer, which was Windows XP, copied to a disc. I now have Vista, and I can see that all the info did make it into the computer, but I don't know how to transfer it from there. I also cannot find the address book when trying to E-mail.

    you moved it from a disk into your new computer, right? and you can see it in windows explorer, but you want to move it somewhere else?

You cannot download Windows XP unfortunately. You may be able to purchase a copy on Ebay. You will need your own installation key which should be on a sticker attached to your PC.

Im not sure which file you are referring to but you could just a repair of the installation
this is fot the master boot record

if there are any other files , settings or programs during the repair process options for these should be available

Insert your Windows XP installation CD or recovery disc, and restart the computer.

Instead of attempting to boot Windows as it normally would, the computer will give you an option to boot from the CD.


Press a key when prompted, then wait for the setup program to load.

Press the "R" key on the "Welcome to Setup" screen.


This will cause the CD to launch the Recovery Console instead of attempting to install Windows XP on your computer.


If you have an administrator password on your copy of XP, then you will need to enter it in order to log in to the Recovery Console.


Choose the installation of Windows XP that you want to repair (generally the only option). Wait for the command prompt to appear, then enter "fixmbr." Press "y" when prompted to let the FixMBR utility overwrite the corrupted bootloader with a new copy.


Remove your XP disc or recovery disc, then type "exit" into the command prompt.

The exit command should cause the computer to reboot, allowing the computer to load the new bootloader file and then continue Windows XP startup as normal.


Hope this helps

I use MS Money 2001. I bought a new PC and is changing from MS Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Pro. I would like my ms money 2001 to continue working on new PC but I can't find the original disc to copy on...


Hi pjhmulder
Assuming MS Money 2001 and 2003 are compatible with W 7 , you could install MS Money 2003 on the new computer and copy the files from MS Money 2001 on the old computer to MS Money 2003 on the new computer . Make sure you don't erase the MS Money 2001 files before transfer has successfully been executed .
Best regards ,

How can I tranfer files from an windows xp hard disc to windows 7 64 bit I know I can use windows easy transfer but my old computer isn't working that well so is there an easy way to do this thanks...


If I understood you right, just get an HDD case for your Windows XP hard disk so you can plug it through USB to your new computer then copy your files normally.
If the XP hard disk is a laptop hard disk (2.5" inches), get one of these, else, its a 3.5" inches hard disk, these cases are also widely available.

I hope this helps

Can't transfer my email files from old computer to new computer


Good Day!



To transfer files from an old computer you can use USB or flash drives, copy the files from your Old Computer to Flash drive, after copying---attach the flash drive to your new computer then copy the files and save it. This is the easiest way to transfer files.

Other way of transferring;

-You can also transfer files by Burning your files into a CD/DVD and copy it to your new computer.
-Get your hard disk from the old computer and attached it to your new computer
-Or connect/network your two computers.

I recommend USB or Flash drives, the simplest and easy way.

Hope I was able to help.

Your computer should have a key on a sticker on the side of it. If you have taken care of that sticker, and you can read that key, then that is the legal copy of windows that you own for that machine. If it says 2000 XP XPPRO or VISTA etc, whatever, that is the version of windows that you already own on that machine. Your computer manufacturer should be able to provide you with a copy of windows for that machine. If not, then there is good news, and bad news. GOOD news is, you can purchase an IDENTICAL COPY of that version of windows and place it in your computer AS WELL AS ANOTHER computer (because you have the old key on the computer case and the NEW key on the disc). Bad news is, youd have to drop some cash to buy the disc.
There is ONE LAST OPTION: Take your computer to a pc shop. They have several versions of Windows available and can restore your windows with drivers to a generic condition, and since they would use your key on your machine, it would be legal. It wont be free though, but anything worth having is going to cost.

I have a computer where the MOBO and CPU went bad and I replaced. The old computer came with Windows Vista installed on it, no CD. Now, Windows Vista won't boot and windows start up repair is activated...


The problem is when Vista was installed on the old pc it only recognizes that pc so you will need to buy a copy of Vista and install it on the new pc. And if you don't want to loose your info you can buy a ide/sata to usb cable and hook it up to your new pc to transfer your old info across. Hope this helps.

Activate xphome


If I'm reading this correctly, this copy of Windows was installed on your old laptop (which is now not working) and you decided to get a new one and are trying to load the same copy of Windows onto your new laptop.

An OEM version of Microsoft Windows can only be installed on one computer. Once you installed that copy of XP onto one computer, the license was permanently tied to that computer and cannot be transferred. This is the difference between OEM and retail versions of Windows. Retail versions can be transferred from computer to computer (as long as only one computer has the software installed at a time); OEM versions cannot be transferred from computer to computer. Even if you were to get through over the phone, Microsoft will not activate your system.

If you still want to pursue it, these are the phone numbers for the Phillipines, according to the records I have:
+653248098 toll number
0080024681668 free number
Chances are you have tried them already, but I posted them in case they're different from the ones you have. You can always choose a different country and dial their phone number. Sure, it'll be a long distance call, but you'll still be able to get through.
