Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook

Original setup was interrupted

Cannot continue with original setup. Power cord fell out during the original setup. Error message says "The system is not fully installed. Please run setup again." I click the "OK" button but it keeps giving me the same error message each time I try to reboot.

    There is no choice to "resume setup". There is no option to "cancel setup & restore previous system" I chose "Last known good configuration" and the error message reads: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS/system32\config\SYSTEM I don't have the original setup disk, or any disk.

    I will need to order a setup disk from HP, which was not provided by the seller. I downloaded the HP Startup Utility, and Sysprep, and put them on separate CD's but the computer will not run them, even from the F8 and F10 menus. I hope using the setup disk works.

Press F8 key (just after BIOS screen) at the next cold reboot and you will see a DOS screen with 3 or more options. Read each of them and I think you will see one option is to resume setup. This option places the system at a safe entry point to continue the setup. Another option may read "cancel setup and restore previous system"...this one may be used if you cannot get the "resume setup" option after repeated tries.

    at this point, I think you must get a setup disc again, but then choose "DOS prompt only with CDROM driver installed"...and then insert CD at DOS prompt with CDROM drive letter and then type "setup". I have gone through this myself and the only way forward was to do these steps. If still dead end, then you may have to run FDISK and format C drive to start over completely. Have a startup floppy disk (create one from a good PC) on hand and ensure the following files are present: scandisk.exe, fdisk.exe, format.exe, and sys.exe. For more help, post back.

    I have also come across the option to "resume setup", but that may be because of the progress of the setup state. It appears that only this option is available after a certain stage is fulfilled...your pc may not have reached that stage yet.

Can a power interrupt during hard drive installation cause a "Boot manager missing" message?


You do not say what OS you were installing, and Windows limits what you can do with the hard drive during installation.
As you have found out, any power interruption during an installation will likely corrupt the process and make the system unbootable.

If you can restart the install at the very beginning that may work for you. However, I believe the simplest fix will be to use a live system bootable disk and erase the corrupted partition table on the drive then restart the install as if it were a brand new hard drive.

For that type of recovery I use gparted, which can be downloaded for free from http://gparted.org/livecd.php
Gparted live can be used on CD, hard disk, USB, or even pxe boot. I would delete all the existing partitions that were created during the failed install, then restart the install from the very beginning as if it were a new disk.

Running the RegCure won't help. Use RevoUninstaller to remove the entire program (Roxio) as Revouninstaller will show you all the registry entries which you can delete it very easily.

My ida-x100 doesnt recognise my ipod when using the apple usb cable


I have a similar problem. The original Alpine USB cable fell apart on me and I began receiving an error message. "No, biggie," I thought. "I have plenty of iPod USB cables." But I get an error message with each one, as well as an error message with every iPod I've tried. Apparently the IDA-X100 will only read iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cable.
