IT DOSENT MATTER WHICH O/S U R USING. THE CD MUST BE BOOTED FROM THE CD DRIVE. JUST CHECK YOUR CD DRIVER. IT MUST BE NOT WORKING PROPERLY.

PERIODICALLY EVERY CD DRIVERS NEEDS SERVICE, LIKE LANCE CLEANUP AND BELT SETTINGS.

JUST SERVICE YOUR CD DRIVER OR CHANGE IT WITH A NEW ONE.

NICE DAY.

Except_handler4_common msvcrt.dll xp download


Option (1)
To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

    NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
  2. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  5. With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command:
    • cd system32
    • ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
    • CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
    • cd \i386
    • expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
    • exit
    NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.

I try to format my pc 1st time its operating system is windows xp i have inserted a xp cd ..... and click reboot but no change occur and i am also unable to format all other drives which donot have os...


First of all does the cd boot into the xp installer. If not the the setting in the Bios would be to boot from HardDisk first. Get into bios by the appropriate key on boot and change the boot order to cd/dvd first and then hdd. Now save settings and restart the system and the xp cd should boot up and you will be able to install xp. Be careful as you may delete all data on the hdd.

Some bios use the del or f2 key to enter, see press __ to enter setting's or bios.In that goto the boot order and change appropriately.
If xp is already installed then if other drives are not acessing saying not formatted then the easy fix would be to right click on non formatted drive and click on format. Then you will be able to access it. Do same for all other drives.

How to reformat my pc with windows xp professional service pack 2


If you have the original XP installation disk with SP2 just install it in your primary CD drive and then boot from the CD when prompted. You may have to enter your setup to change the boot sequence if your computer doesn't boot from the CD. I'd have to know what computer manufacturer and model to tell you how to enter setup, but assuming you have a legal version of Win XP SP2, it's as simple as booting from the disk, letting windows install the temporary files and it will then identify your drive and whether there are any partitions. At that point you select the partition if one is shown or it will tell you the disk size and that there currently is no partition and ask you if you want to create one. folow the prompts until you get to the format option. You can select either normal or fast NTSF format and let the installation process complete. You'll have to enter the key and do some other user input required things like your time zone etc, but that's about it.

Unable to formate window 7 ultimate


You need to boot the PC with the XP CD and you will get an option to delete and format partition before new install. If you dont have the option to boot from CD at startup you will have to enter setup / bios and enable CD as first boot device. Cheers from Scott

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

Will not boot to XP


these are some following procedure
do it carefully


XP Repair install Please read carefully and make sure you followed the warning links before initiating the Repair Install. You can print a text version for reference. repair.txt
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. note.gifTo Repair Install, press ENTER
    \r\n'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.borderStyle','double','style.borderWidth','3px','style.padding','5px','style.backgroundColor','#F9F4D5','style.backgroundImage','url(\'edgbkgnd4.gif\')'); FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','visible')" onclick="FP_changeProp(/*id*/'layer1',0,'style.visibility','hidden')" border="0" width="15" height="21" /> do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. If you get files not found during the copying stage.
    Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet when asked, enable the XP firewall before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click the connection you use, Properties and there is a check box on the Advanced page.

  7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates issued after the service packs will need to be reapplied.
