How do I make Dell 530s boot and load windows?


Are there any sets of audio 'beeps' that occur during startup? If you get anything other than a single beep during startup, it could indicate an error code for hardware failure detected during the POST phase of bootup.

If you have recovery or Windows installation CD's, try pressing F12, go to the bootup menu and try booting from the CD.

Look at the bootup menu and see if there is a hard drive as one of the options. If the hard drive is not there, or if you try to boot from the hard drive from that menu and you get error messages, that might indicate something wrong with the hard drive.

If you can boot from the CD, you may be able to use the Windows Recovery Manager to restore Windows on your hard drive, if the hard drive is working. There may also be a recovery partition on the drive that will allow you to recover Windows, but beware that files on the hard drive may be lost when you use the recovery partition.

If you have files on the hard drive you need to recover, you may be able to remove the hard drive, put it on an USB drive adapter, and use another PC to copy files off of the old drive, even if it cannot boot the old computer. After you have recovered your files, you can try the recovery partition or format the drive and use Windows install disks to restore Windows to the drive.

No bootable device, hit any key


The bios cannot find any device it can boot from. This can occur because of hard disk failure, a loose connection or file corruption. There usually is a boot menu that you can get to from the bios by hitting some key specified by your bios manufacturer during the POST bootup process. Usually there is some message on screen like 'press esc for bootup options' or 'press f2 to enter bios setup' or something similar. As your machine starts up, try hitting ESC, F2, F5, F8 or F12 -one at a time-hitting each key several times during bootup (maybe your manual can give you a hint). If you get into the BIOS setup screen, look at the screen that tells you what the BIOS thinks you have attached for storage. If you don't see a hard disk there, you have a definite hardware problem. If you get into a boot option screen, try putting a Windows Installation CD, or a recovery CD from your laptop manufacturer, in the CD-ROM drive of your computer and enabling the machine to boot from the CD-ROM. If the PC boots from the CD-ROM, you may be able to use Windows Recovery mode or your manufacturer's recovery disk to get your hard drive working again. If you have any files you can't live without on your hard drive, look into getting your hard drive out of your laptop and into a USB drive enclosure that you can use another PC to try and read those files from the hard drive prior to attempting any recovery options, as some of them erase all files on your hard drive. Also check to see if your PC has manufacturer diagnostics that you can boot into to check your hardware with before attempting any other type of repairs.

  1. Use the Windows Vista startup disks or the Windows Vista CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows Vista installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.

I rebooted my operating system windows xp-sp2.now in my leptop the com port is not showing.instead of this only bluetooth port is detecting .how i will solve this problem??


I would suggest that you run diagnostics on your pc to isolate the issue and identify if it is caused by a hardware failure or caused by a software glitch on the system.

You can also try to repair the OS if the problem lies within the platform itself.

Please follow instructions indicated herein....

XP REPAIR INSTALL

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the
boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation
for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the
options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the
Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery
Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP
installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing
Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and
press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options,
read Warning #2 below!!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.
Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your
applications and settings will remain intact.

Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet
when asked, enable the XP firewall
[ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the
firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click
the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the
Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.

7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP
installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original
pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove
SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates isssued after the
service packs will need to be reapplied.

Service Pack 2 link. Copy and paste link into your browser.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!
