Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

MS will not let me reload XP Pro

My computer was damaged by a virus so I decided to purchase a copy of Windows XP Pro and to do a complete reload. My current OS is the media version.

Before the attack I was at SP3 and had automatic updates.

So I started to reload but MS would not let me proceed because I had a version later than SP2. It suggested that I boot from the CD. Tried that - everything went well for a ferw moments and then it decided that I had no hard disc (despite the fact that it was loading drivers, etc.)! So everything stopped.

This must not be unique - can someone help?

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 ,

Hi My son decided to completely clear his Packard bell M1610 and i don't hav the recovery discs.Is ther anything i can do?(Apart from throttle my son)


When you mean he decided to clear his computer out. You probably mean he either deleted files,folders and programmes off his computer.

You have 2 options

1. Contact the computer shop you bought the PC from or the manufacturer Pacard Bell giving them the machine number in both cases and explain to them that you do not have the Recovery CD and can they post one out to me

or

2. Purchase a copy of an Operating System (either Windows Vista or Windows XP) and a copy of Office 2003 (XP) 2007 (Vista) and install a fresh copy on your machine.

Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC


Yes all you have to do is.........

Turn off the Computer
Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.

Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery

Hi, It would seem that your CD drive is not reading completely your installer CDs hence you can not complete the install procedure. Your best bet may be to temporarily replace with a known good/operation until installation has completed. The 1386 should read I386 and is normally in D:\ which is the CD drive and is a folder in the Win XP installer. Good luck and kind regards.
