Did your computer come with xp already installed?
If so just boot to d: drive. that is the drive that has xp setup on it.
If not do you have the COA number on either the back or side of the computer?
If you do you can go to microsoft.com and download xp from there.

How the remove the genuine microsoft software?


If you just need to install a new OS ( win 7 ? ) , all you have to do is to insert the install disc and Windows will do the job , deleting Win XP at the same time . Don' t forget to back up your data and drivers before proceeding .

I upgraded windows from service pak 2 to service pak 3 then my windows encountered a problem what shall i do?


You can remove the service pack by click Start -- > Control Panel -- > Add/remove programs. If not, use the backup disc you created upon installing windows. If you didn't create or don't have one, use the original install disc.

HI, i have a IBM thinkcentre S50 8086-21G and after resinstall on my hard drive the XP SP2 version , i don't have access about the USB connector and can you help me about this? i don't find the...


What exactly are you trying to connect to the computer via usb? If your talking about generic devices such as usb mice and keyboard then you will need to reinstall windows again. Devices like these use a generic usb driver that is installed during windows xp installation. There isn't really anyway to install this driver that I am aware of other then a clean install of windows
You could attempt to repair the windows system files, but I can't guarantee it will help.
You will need a windows xp disc. -Insert the disc. -Press the "Start" button -Click on run -Type "cmd" and press enter -Type "sfc /SCANNOW" and press enter
This will check for problems with your system files. Hope this helps
Clean install of windows (Delete all partitions and re install fresh) would be the easiest way to fix the driver problem. I did also find this article on how to manually install the usb driver. Best of luck http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329632

Restore disk has been lost. I need to know how to change bios to allow straight Xp to be installed


This isn't a bios setting, it's a setting that Compaq put somewhere (probably the MBR) of your OS to only allow it's restore discs.
If you want to use straight Windows XP OEM discs, just boot to the disc and you'll be able to install Windows. If that doesn't work, just format your hard drive(you'll lose everything) then boot to the XP and install that way.

Hi, I need driver for windows 7 I try install for xp and run like in xp but it is not working if you have any tip I will be thankfull


Hi marec2009
Unfortunately , you don't tell us what device is concerned with this compatibility problem .
If nothing works , uncluding troubleshooting in compatibility XP , the only way to get out of the issue is a workaround : installing a virtual version of XP on your machine but you can do it only under restricted conditions :
You are running Windows 7 Ultimate , or Professional or Entreprise :
you can download and install a free virtual version of Win XP from : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
Other versions :
.If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Best regards .

My computer crashed and i need to install windows xp home edition but don;t have the disc what can i do


You should have a system recovery disk. If you don't, then you will need a XP Home disk. As long as you have the XP installation code (usually placed on a sticker on the outside of your comptuer), you can use any XP Home disk. It's the product code that is really needed. Go borrow a CD from a friend and use your software code that is on your computer.

How to install windows xp in msi k8mm-v motherboard?


Hi dharmen_shah,
I see that you need to install Windows XP on you Dekstop with an MSI Motherboard k8mm-V.
I have another desktop using the same Motherboard, there are 3 options installing Windows XP on the machine.
  1. Using an IDE Optical Drive
  2. Using a SATA Optical Drive "not a common installation process on this motherboard" since you will need to install the SATA rivers first to be able to use your SATA ODD
  3. Using a USB Flash Drive
See steps below for each installation type.
*Using an IDE Optical Drive*
  • If you have your Windows XP CD insert it on the Disc Drive restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • Once in the Boot Menu screen select your Optical Drive, it may say dvd/cd or ODD, select this and press enter. Note: windows may restart during the installation if it says press any key to boot to cd do not press anything anymore leave it will do everything on it's own unless prompted for any user information like a computer name date and time.
  • You will see on the screen Boot to cd: then it will show "press any key to boot to cd" press Enter or any key this will boot from your cd Windows XP.
  • Then you will see inspecting your hardware for configuration, once it boots to your Windows XP cd you will see a blue screen Loading up drivers and stuff for the installation of Windows XP.
  • Next will be the installation of Windows XP itself, just follow the prompt it is very easy to follow and it will give you all the details and what buttons to click on.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.

*Using SATA Optical Disc Drive*
  • You will need a 1.4 floppy disc to be able to do this.
  • If you have a 1.4 Floppy Drive you will also need to download the SATA driver from the MSI website.
  • Let us disregard this option since I believe you do no have a 1.4 Floppy Disc Drive and no one uses that or has a 1.4 Floppy Drive anymore on their machines.
*Using a USB Flash Drive*
  • To be able to use a USB Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP your USB Flash Drive should at least be 1GB or 2GB, 1GB will be enough since windows XP only uses at least 7++gb of disc space for the installer size.
  • Using you USB Flash Drive you will need to copy the whole contents of your Windows XP Cd into your USB Flash Drive, don't worry this will be bootable just make sure that you copy everything from the disc into the USB Flash Drive.
  • Once you have copied Windows XP on your USB Flash Drive insert it to one of your USB ports on the machine then restart the computer.
  • Restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • This will be the same as using your Windows XP cd but instead you will need to select USB in the Boot Menu then press enter. on the installation steps it will be the same as installing using a disc.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.
  • Windows may restart during the installation and using a USB Flash Drive will be different at this point because it will boot directly to the USB, Once it restarts and may repeat the installation all over, to prevent this as soon as the system begins to restart from the installation go and keep on tapping "Delete" once it restarts this will bring you to the BIOS screen press F9 to set it to defaults then press F10 to save and exit this will restart again.
  • Once it restarts after setting the BIOS to defaults let the system boot on its own it will then show you a screen asking what windows to install the first thing highlighted will be the installation that was halted earlier just press enter then it will show you the windows installation page and will continue on it's own.
This is based on my own experience since I have an older Desktop that has the same Motherboard, I hope that I have given you all the options possible to installing your windows XP on your Motherboard k8mm-v.
Have a nice day,

mvincentc
