Hi there.
Clean the lens on the CD/DVD rom and make sure that the install disk is clean and free of fingerprint smudges, then try to install again, one more thing to clean is the system memory, take it out and clean the contacts and slots with a soft, dry, clean paintbrush.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Una to reinstall. Get this MX: ''Error 1305.error reading from file EmsworkspfilesC3WizardsSTUSSus.dat. Verify that the file exists and that ypou can use it. ?: How do I verify?


You have to check that the disc you are installing from is not damaged or if it is a burned copy is not a bad copy.

Anytime you get this error during a reinstall or install of windows it is due to the installation disc having a problem. occassionally you will find a bad drive but rarely the case.

Hi.

If she did not format the hard disk, then the Windows XP startup option will be present in boot option. When computer startup you will get a choice like this:

1 Microsoft Windows Vista Home Edition.
2 Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

In that case you can restore XP, starting on XP and editing the file winboot.ini, that is an hidden system file located on C:/ drive.

See:How to edit the Boot.ini file in Windows XP.

If instead Windows XP does not start, or if you do not get the boot option, that means that Windows XP system file had been deleted.

In that case the only way to get back Windows XP is reinstalling the system from scrap, using a Windows XP install disk, and the number listed on the licence sticker.

Regards.

I need msvcr71.dll i dont no wat it is?


...or try http://www.dll-files.com/ . If your dll does not exist, propose it. It should arrive in a few days.

If not you can find it on HUBs (peer-2-peer).

Copy it to your win/sys32 folder and it should be ok. :)

Error message when starting up: <Windowsroot>\system 32\hal.dll. Please reinstall a copy of the above file.


This issue happens if boot files are corrupted .. you need to have the Operating System Cd to resolve this problem . Considering you have windows xp you need to have the installation cd for windows xp .
you need to use bootcfg command to resolve the issue.

Go to bios and change the boot sequence to boot from the cd, if you are not able to boot from the cd. and then boot using windows xp cd .

Then push R to go to recovery console and use the below command

Boot to Recovery Console and rebuild the BOOT.INI file with the BOOTCFG /REBUILD
command.

Needed to reinstall xp home used my recovery cd but because it's scratched it won't copy certain files now i can't use my computer at all


If someone else has a copy of Windows Xp Home for you to use, you can use their CD with the key provided on the label on your machine. You do not have to use the CD that came with your computer. Just note, you may have to install drivers separately.
