Boot from cd


Usually when you get messages like this, this often it is malware. I assume your real problem is cleaning your system of this malware, not booting to a CD. Your best bet is to restore to a system restore point before this started happening. Google around for how to do that in your operating system. If you don't have a working system restore or that doesn't resolve your problem please follow this malware removal guide to the letter: http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35407

WRT your question about the boot disk:

A bootable optical disk is an ok approach but it is not a simple process. You will probably want to create this disk on another computer. The disk must be bootable (an instruction is written to the first part of the disk which is interpreted by your bios as bootable media). If your recovery program is a file that ends with .img or .iso then it is an optical disk image which is compressed. I'm assuming you have windows 7 based on the model of your laptop. If so you should be able to double-click the image file and it will open Windows Disk Image Burner where you select the burner drive letter and click the burn button. Once you've done all of that you may need
enter the bios to change the boot order. In the bios you should see a tabbed menu screen that has these headings:

Main ' Config ' Date/Time ' Security ' Startup ' Restart

The boot order is in the Startup menu. You'll want your optical drive (CD, DVD, or Blu Ray) as the top item in the boot order. Save and exit will save these settings and restart your computer. It should now boot the CD.

Compaq Presario pops up a system boot menu everytime at startup.


This comes up mostly when it requires a BIOS save. Try that. If that does not help, sometimes setting the default settings and saving will help.

Doesn't enable virtualization


To determine whether your PC supports hardware virtualization:

Step 1. Does my PC have a CPU with support for hardware virtualization?


Download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool

If you receive the message This computer does not have hardware-assisted virtualization, your computer does not meet the hardware requirement for Windows Virtual PC, but you can still use Windows 7 XP Mode by running this hotfix. Be aware that XP Mode will run much better if hardware-assisted virtualization can be enabled.

If you receive the message Hardware-assisted virtualization is not enabled on this computer, go on to Step 2 below.

If you receive the message This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization, download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.

Step 2. Does my PC BIOS support hardware virtualization, and is it turned on?

Instructions to turn on hardware virtualization in your PC BIOS are specific to OEM models. It is important that after changing your BIOS settings the PC is completely shut down at the power switch before restarting so that the new BIOS settings can take place.

Examples for some models of some computer manufacturer's BIOS settings are below:

Sample instructions for your PC

Expand all

Dell systems

Depress the F12 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select BIOS setup and depress the Enter key

Using the mouse, expand the Virtualization Support menu item by clicking on the plus to the left of Virtualization Support and select Virtualization

Check the Enable Intel Virtualization Technology checkbox

Click Apply

Click Exit

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

HP systems

Depress Esc key when prompted at startup

Depress the F10 key to Configure BIOS

Scroll to System Configuration using the arrow keys

Select Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress the F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Lenovo ThinkPad systems

Depress the blue ThinkVantage key when prompted at startup

Depress the F1 key to enter the BIOS setup utility

Using the arrow keys, scroll to Config and depress the Enter key

Scroll to CPU and depress the Enter key

Scroll to Intel Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress Enter key to continue

Depress F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Acer

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Asus

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Samsung

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Panasonic

Depress the F2 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select Advanced menu in Setup Utility

Change "Intel Virtualization Technology" setting from Disable to Enable

Depress F10 to exit Setup Utility

Select Yes in confirmation menu

Depress Enter to exit confirmation menu.

Please note the instructions above may not work in all cases and consulting with your computer manufacturer may be necessary. Additionally, we expect hardware virtualization to become more available when Windows 7 is shipped, particularly in business-class PCs. For those PCs that come pre-installed with Windows XP Mode we recommend the computer manufacturer turn on hardware virtualization before shipping the PC.


Once you have confirmed your PC supports hardware virtualization
Download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode

hope this helps

I upgraded my bios and my machine loads to a windows logo then goes to blues screen for about a second then resets is there a way to restore the bios to factory default


You need to download a previous version of the BIOS and try to update the PC with that.
Before you do, go into the bios settings and use the 'set bios defaults' option to see if you can clear the bios to a better state. You can also remove the CMOS backup battery on the motherboard, leave it for a few minutes and put the battery back. Then restart the PC, go into bios setup, Save & Exit the bios and see if it boots up. Also, try starting Windows in Safe mode (press F8 during the boot up process to get the windows startup menu).
