Of course. You can use some live linux distro (Ubuntu in example) or Hiren's Boot CD (one of the best tools, download here: http://rapidshare.com/files/426971514/Hirens.BootCD.11.1.rar )

SOURCE: Have A HP 735P made recovery disks when computer

The most likely cause of this, is that the new hard drive is not the same as the orginal. Restore media is setup to install only on OEM. Orginal Equipement. If the new hard drive is larger or smaller then the orginal it will not properly load.

The easiest solution to this is if the new hard drive is larger, use a disk setup utility and create a partition the same size as the old drive.

If your drive was retail the software to do this will have been in the box. If you purchased an oem drive you can download the drive setup tools from the manufacturers site.

The drive setup utility is easy to use. Boot to it and choose setup drive. When selected it then procedes to the screen where you will need to set the size of the partition. 1024MB is 1 GB. This will help you detemine the size of the partition you need to set.

Good luck

SOURCE: I have an HP 513n, currently running Windows XP

Yes. Install the hard-drive, and use Windows XP to "partition" and "format" the second disk-drive.

When installing Windows 7, be sure to "point" the installer to the drive-letter of the second disk-drive.

Windows 7 will create a "dual-boot" environment.

SOURCE: trying to boot and change bios start up for compaq d530 sff

Unplug the case from the power, open the cover and try to locate on the motherboard a small round battery (a little bigger that the one at the electronic watches) TAKE CARE THAT THE TOWER IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS. Very carefully remove the batery and wait 1-2 minutes. After that insert the battery back, close the case, plug the tower and start the pc. It will boot at the default bios settings, without passwords but you have to make the settings again (date, boot order e.t.c.)
In case of a problem post back.

Stelios.

Dell bootmgr is missing


Most likely cause is that the boot order in the BIOS is set up for the HDD first. When turning on the unit, press the key needed to enter setup. Once in setup, search thru the menus for the boot order. Choose the CD drive as the first boot device, then the hard drive as second. Save and exit the setup. When rebooting, ensure the WIN XP CD is in the drive. When the screen says, "press any key to boot from CD", press a key and the WIN XO CD should take over and start the install. Once WIN XP starts installing, follow directions. On each restart after that, DO NOT press the key to boot from CD. WIN XP setup will handle everything until the reinstall is complete. After you are done, you may choose to go back to setup and change the boot order back, but it is not really necessary. The only time you will get the "press and key to boot from CD" message is when there is a bootable CD/DVD installed in the drive. Otherwise, it overlooks it and goes to the next boot device (HDD).

Please note that installing an operating system on an OEM machine OTHER than what was factory-installed on it may void either phone support for the customized OS or the warranty itself.

Lenovo Machines, like most new OEM models are set, by default to run their hard drives in AHCI mode for better performance & power management. Go to the computer's system setup F1 or Del while the computer is starting up to locate the Power, Hard drive or System configuration (Lenovo computers have different System Setup formats for each model so you'll have to navigate around a bit since they may be labeled differently).

Once you find it, you have to change the setting from AHCI to IDE or Compatibility, whichever option is available (once again, each model has a different format & labeling convention). Save the changes & exit the setup & retry the installation. Should work.

My computer formatted i have genuine product key how to get win xp home edition and install in my computer


Put the genuine Microsoft CD-ROM disk into your CD-ROM drive.
Restart your computer.
As soon as it starts, look for a message like "press Fxx to temporary change boot-order".
Press that key.
Select to boot from you CD-ROM drive.
This will start to install Windows, by reading from the CD-ROM drive.

Can i change the operating system from windows vista basic to windows xp?


I would advise you not to do so. Most manufactureres did not release proper drivers for windows XP, as MS didn't encourage them to do so.

I can advise you to install windows 7 instead. I've installed it on all of my computers and I'm more than pleased. You can even run different programs as if the windows was XP... (and no, I don't work for Microsoft...)

to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.
