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.

Locked out from eee box 1035 need to reset bios how?


Try this. Right out of the manual. The reset button is the little pin hole next to the power. Will need a paper clip that is straightened.

Entering the BIOS Setup
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings that are needed for system startup in the PC.
In normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most
conditions to ensure optimal performance. Do not change the
default BIOS settings except in the following circumstances:
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
You have installed a new system component that requires further
BIOS settings or update.
WARNING!
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Quickly enter the BIOS
Windows8 boot time is quite fast, so we developed the following
three ways for you to quickly access the BIOS:
Before booting up the system, insert a straightened paper clip
into the BIOS Reset key.
BIOS Reset key
Press the power button for at least four seconds to shut down
your PC, then press the power button again to turn your PC back
on, and press F2 during POSt.
When your PC is off, disconnect the power cord from your PC's
power connector. Reconnect the power cord and press the
power button to turn on your PC. Press F2 during POST.

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.

you didn't post the make and model of the system, but on most modern systems, this error occurs when the Hard Drive Controller for the system doesn't have a native driver on the Windows install CD. So you need to load the driver during the install. In XP this is done via a Floppy Diskette (XP setup will not recognise a USB Drive) Vista you can install from just about any drive (USB Flash drive generally easiest)

Sys Init Error - Halt - But I want it to skip All Errors


darian69, windows did not setup correctly. Double check all data cables & power cable connections. (Tight fits).
(This is not an uncommon error). Please download the manufactures drive utility software for a bootable floppy disk or bootable cdrom disk. Test/check & setup the drive, (formatt). Than install windows. Once installed, turn on windows firwall & install nic driver software. Run windows update. Check for hardware updates & install. This should fix the system halt.

Please let me know if this stopped the error message.

Problem istalling windows 2000 professional on a pc with intel d945gcnl motherboard


try to make bios settings default and make a proper installation

The bios in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."
