Foreign disks, or drives that have pre-existing operating systems installed with prior configurations, are often prone to error unless transplanted into systems with a nearly identical configuration.

The only simply way to rectify this issue is to boot off of the Windows installation disk and perform an "In-place Upgrade" or a "Re-install" of Windows. This method will re-install just the main portions of Windows, and write the new configuration, while in theory not disturbing the rest of the drive's data.

While this is a documented and intended function of the Windows installer it does have its issues.

I can say with confidence that you can attempt this, but I would suggest confirming that you have all necessary data backed up before you do.

As far as the other alternative, you can always save your data, plugging the drive into a different machine, and then do a clean install which is a much better choice as far as performance and stability, but the choice is yours.

This link to Microsoft's site further explains the necessary steps for an "In-Place Upgrade" which really means a Re-installation of a Full Copy (Not an upgrade copy) of Windows, if you were concerned about the terminology.

Those are your options. Should you require any more information, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution, Thank you.

Computer won't boot-up


hi, is the ide-ata enabled in the bios? do you have sata? and is it enabled?also did you put thermal compound on the cpu' s heatsink when you put it back on the cpu? the 2 second on thing sounds like over-heating,do check the bios first. alot of motherboards have a thermal shutdown, so if the fan or compound failed, it would quikly shut off. as for the channels not working-you can try your primary drive, and see if it boots. but first see if it is on in the bios. check and replace the battery on the motherboard. post again if you need help good luck! hope this is helpful.

Can i repalace AMD athlon by dual core


what cpu you have [in this case AMD based] does not affect you virus protection level. you should get a good anti-virus software.
most of them don't cost much. may i recommend kaspersky anti-virus or NOD32 anti-virus.
if you do not wish to spend money on such software you can always try free anti-virus software. like Avira Antivir available here:

How can I protect myself from computer viruses


if your computer does not have any anti-virus software, or you do not know how to use the anti-virus software that came with your computer, you can get anti-virus software from the University of Maryland. This software is available to University of Maryland College Park students, faculty, and staff for free if you download the software or get the Getting Connected CD from the OIT HelpDesk. There are web pages on-line that will instruct you how to download, install, and update the software so that the software can be kept up-to-date very easily.

About sound manager


It's probably some sort of virus. There's been no known existence in any system that creates .exe while moving or copying files unless its a virus loaded in memory monitoring file access. Virus is made to proliferate. Don't try to execute the .exe file and immediately scan your computers both desktop and mobile for possible additional existence of viruses by using dependable anti-virus software with latest updates - the anti-virus software will not be able to detect it if it's not on its latest virus database list & signatures.
