How do I replace win 8.1 with win 7 enterprise


If you have the Win7 software discs and the product key you should be OK. I'd backup all of your data, then using the Win7 disc, full format the drive and install Win7. Be sure your BIOS is set to boot from the CD/DVD ROM.

Installed new hdd still says no bootable devices


You need to install the OS (operating system). Insert the OS cd into the cd-rom and reboot. When it says "Press any key to boot from CD" press a button.. Then follow the on screen prompts to install the OS onto the hard drive.

Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer and Manage. Check for hidden devices ubder View and delete all CD drives. Reboot and Windows will auto install.

You have a bigger problem if it fails to install and work. Then I would try re-seating the drive physically. GL

Burning Fail, ErrCode: 0xeb020be2


Frequently this is a driver or firmware issue. First try to update your device driver. Open the Device Manager. (Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sounds (or System and Security) > Device Manger, in Windows 7. The route is similar for Vista and XP. ) Locate your CD drive in the list under DVD/CD-ROM. Right click on the drive and click Update driver. (You may need to uninstall the current driver first and restart the computer; this is in the same list.) This will find the current Windows driver. For firmware, check what drive was actually included in your G430 and find the manufacturer. You can also check for drivers or firmware at the Lenovo support site. (For 32-bit versions of Windows OS, you can use SIW to detail your hardware. It's available here: www.gtopala.com/ . )

Next check the autorun details for your optical drive. Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound .Select AutoPlay and select the defaults. (Note: for security reasons, you may not want to change the settings for software.) If you are really confident, you can change the Autorun settings in the registry. Back up your registry (Export > All) first. I do not recommend changing the registry.

The final solution is to get new optical drive (read/write). USB optical drives are available, if you do not want to try to replace the internal drive. Make sure that your laptop is running on AC power (not the battery only) for burning.

I hope this helps.

Was given inspiron 5000e laptop- / can it be


Yes, you can upgrade to windows XP but it will require upgrading the memory to the maximum supported memory of 512 MB. It is set up with PC100. I would suggest going with PC133 when you upgrade the memory. Be advised though that the PC100/PC133 memory is expensive new but you can usually shop around and find it used for a cheaper price. The 800MHz processor will support the XP operating system.

Installing XP after formatting Vista in Dell Laptop


When you install XP, when you select which drive you want to install it on, you also have the option to create and delete partitions.

When you're asked which drive you want to install on, instead of selecting one you need to delete your C partition (There are keyboard shortcuts displayed at the bottom to tell you how), then use the free space to create as many other partitions as you want.

Make sure you size your partitions correctly, because otherwise you would go over the size capacity of your drive.

After your partitions are created, you can install windows on C. After the installation is complete, make sure to format the other partitions (From My Computer, right-click a drive and select Format) so you can use them.
