How to reformat a computer


Performing a Clean Installation of Windows Vista is the preferred installation method. An alternate method available is an "Upgrade" installation. I do not recommend upgrading. Too many things can go wrong with an upgrade and I have seen this many many times with all Windows operating systems over the years. A Clean Installation gives your system 'clean' file paths which will create a much faster and reliable installation.


The instructions below will apply to those that would like to:


Do a clean installation on a computer without an existing operating system.
Replace an existing operating system and replace it with Windows Vista.
Install Windows Vista on a separate partition.
Note: These instruction will work fine for both 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

<>Getting Ready to Install Vista:


I would recommend, even before purchasing Vista, that you check that all of your 'needed' hardware and software will function in the Vista environment. Download the Vista Upgrade Advisor to check your hardware. The Vista Upgrade Advisor will help you identify and possibly resolve any Vista compatibility issues that may exist in your computer system.

Be sure that you update all drivers (video card, monitor, sound card ...etc.) for all of your installed devices.

You will need to check with the software maker to find out if it is going to be compatible with Vista.

<>Clean Install Over An Existing Operating System:


Before performing a clean installation of Windows Vista, be sure that you have backed up any data that you would like to keep. A clean installation of Vista will mean erasing all data and starting from scratch. Use your preferred backup method. If you need backup instructions for Windows XP, click the link below:


Manually Backup Windows XP

<>Configure your BIOS to boot from the DVD:


When you insert your Windows Vista Installation DVD, it should automatically launch. If it doesn't launch, try restarting your system with the DVD inserted in the DVD drive. If it still won't launch, you will need to configure your BIOS to make your current installation boot from your DVD drive. To gain access to your systems BIOS you will need to refer to your particular systems operating instructions. However, most of the time, by pressing the F2 or the Delete (one or the other, not both) key repeatedly once your system boots to the "logo screen" will give you access to "Setup". Also, many systems have a boot menu that lists something like:


Press F12 for setup


If this is your case, simply press F12 when given that prompt. In any case, once you are in setup, configure your DVD drive to the top of the boot order. Save the change and exit setup.


[Top]


<>Begin your Clean Installation of Windows Vista:


Place the Windows Vista installation DVD in to your DVD drive, then reboot your system to allow the DVD to launch. At your first prompt, press any key to continue the process. Click Next and then click "Install Now" when prompted.

You will now be at the "Get important updates for installation" page. It is highly recommended (if you have an Internet connection at this point) to go ahead and install any available updates to ensure a successful installation. Once you've received the updates, click Next.

You will now be asked for your product key information. Your product key is located on your DVD case. Insert your 25 digit product key then click Next.

Now, you should be at the License Agreement screen. Feel free to read through the whole thing but it is going to take you quite awhile. You must "Accept" the licensing agreement to continue. Click Next once you're comfortable with the licensing agreement.

This next screen contains the main installation options. Select "Custom Install" (this is the correct option for a clean installation). Click Next.

Setup will now ask where you would like to install Windows Vista. You will see the available partitions on your system. You will need to select the "boot" partition (usually C:). If your boot partition has a previous version of Windows installed on it, you will want to delete this partition and the create a new boot partition. Create any additional partitions as desired, just be sure that each partition you create is formatted. Once you're done, click Next.

From here, the prompts may vary depending on your particular system. Just follow the on-screen prompts to install Vista to your systems configuration.

Once Windows Vista installs the necessary files to run, it will restart twice. It is important that you leave the installation disk in the DVD drive until the Windows Vista is completely installed. After the first restart, you will be asked to insert any Username and Password that you would like to use and a Name for your PC. Additionally, you will be asked for the following information:
Time and Date settings
Current Location (home or office)
After all of your information is successfully received, Vista will boot a second time. After it boots successfully, you can safely remove the Windows Vista installation DVD.


Congratulations! I hope that you get many years of enjoyment out of your new Windows Vista operating system!


Important!: Make sure that you install proper anti-virus and anti-spyware programs to protect your new Windows installation. See the article below for some recommendations:


Secure a New Computer
[Top]


<>After a Successful Installation:


When installing Windows Vista with another Windows operating system already installed. Vista will create a file called, Windows.old" on your boot drive. Once everything is running fine on your new Vista installation and you are sure that you have your old data already backed up, it is safe to delete the Windows.old file. This file could be nearly 30 gigabytes in size. Just do a simple search for this file then right click and delete it. You will, of course, need Administrator privileges to do so.

If you receive an error that; "you do not have sufficient permission" when deleting this folder, the reason may be that you need to take ownership of the file and its contents, here's how:


1. Right click the Windows.old file and then select Properties.
2. Select the Security tab.
3. Click the Advanced button.
4. Select the Owner tab.
5. Click on the Edit button.
6. Confirm at the UAC warning prompt
7. Select Change ownership.

If  you are referring to HP QuicPlay application, it is not available for download seperately.
This is only available with the Preinstalled Operating System and not available either through HP or any other source for download.
If you are using a retail version of Vista in your Notebook, you need to purchase the Recovery Disks for your Notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the Preinstalled Operating System along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers to factory default settings.

I can't to install Windows vista 64 bit within a 32 bit


hi,
If you have a 32-bit version of Windows XP and want to install a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you must boot the computer from the 64-bit Windows Vista DVD and then perform a custom installation of Windows Vista. Back up data before you start the custom installation.

Laptop will not play dvd 'KNIGHT RIDER' original


This is a common issue with Vista where few of the applications which may not work even if they are compatible with Vista.

I recommend you to try downloading and installing Service Pack 1 for Vista if you are using a Genuine or preinstalled version of Vista from the link below :

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/a/9/3a9b72c2-527d-4694-8a49-84c056d4c34d/Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave0.exe

The issue should be fixed if the issue is with the Operating System because of which few applications are not operating correctly.

Additionally, I recommend you to try other applications like KLM Codec pack or VLC Media Player which use less RAM and Processing power when compared to Quick Play and Windows Media Player and I use them myself in my PC.

These applications are also capable of playing more video and audio formats which Quick Play and Windows Media Player cannot play.

Download K Lite Mega Codec Pack (KLM) which includes Media Player Classic to play most of the audio and video files from the link below :

http://files.3dnews.ru/pub/soft/multimedia/codec/klmcodec417.exe

You can download the VLC Media Player for yor Notebook from the link below :

http://www.videolan.org/mirror.html?mirror=http://mirror.services.wisc.edu/mirrors/videolan/&file=vlc/0.8.6i/win32/vlc-0.8.6i-win32.exe

Better way is to save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install it.

I am sure this is going to resolve your play back issues.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
