You should be able to get one by contacting the manufacturer of your laptop- It may cost a few bucks.

Depends what you mean by Bootup disk. Windows 95/98 used to use these to get into diagnostic tools for windows xp the install cd is where all the advanced recovery stuff is. If you want a computer to bootup like it did with a windows 98 bootdisk you can go to bootdisk.com and get a copy. Hope this helped!

Will not Reboot back into Windows?


Well you kinda messed up your windws instillation and the only way you are going to get the pc working again as a complete format and reinstall..

1.) boot from the windows xp cd,
2.) delete the partition to remain with one huge unpartationed spcce.
3.)select this unpartationed space and hit enter
4.)do a full format and let windows reinstall it self.

this will remeover everything on your harddrive including the messed up files and boot sector, rewrite you mbr etc..
WARNING IT WILL REMOVE EVERYTHING..

so you will need to reinstall all your drivers and software..

if you need further help or details reply here ..

Cyclic boot and reboot after installing SP2


If you have the Windows XP recovery disk you should boot into the disk and do a repair install of the Windows OS. You can also press 'F8' before or right after the Windows XP splash screen comes up and tell it to either boot into Safe Mode or "Boot with last configuration that worked". If you boot into safe mode, go to control panel and programs and uninstall the sp2 installation. Please comment back if you need further assistance. I will be providing a How-To on how to recover a system using system CDs today.

Good Luck,

How do i use my backup disk from my windows 7 to use it to reboot my windows xp lab-top


First Off, you can't jump from XP to Windows 7 without a Complete Fresh Install of 7... Second, you will need the XP cd to boot the XP machine, not a windows 7 backup.. You can however use an OEM windows 7 disk to boot the XP machine, though it won't upgrade..

Reboot


To Reboot a computer is to turn it off, wait at least 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

A.If you're thinking of Reboot, as to reinstall the Operating System, you use a Restoration Disk, (sometimes listed as Recovery Disk), insert it in your CD/DVD drive, and restart your computer.
(Just press the CTRL, ALT and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
Not shouting. Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an Operating System)

B.If you're trying to install an Operating System, from a CD disk that you bought, I suggest you go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM. Insert the CD disk in your CD/DVD drive, and restart the computer.

If you buy a Full Installation CD disk, as listed above, you have to change the Boot Order.
For example:
1.You have Windows XP on your computer now. It has problems, and doesn't work correctly. Instead of getting the Restoration Disk from your computer manufacturer, you decided to just buy a genuine copy of Windows XP, and install it. (This is a Full Installation Disk)

The Windows XP you have installed now, will not let the one you bought install over it, by just putting the disk in the drive. Change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM, and it will. The Windows XP you have now, will 'see' the Windows XP you're trying to install, as just the same version. You have to install a better version of Windows, in order for it to write over what is installed.
Such as Windows Vista.

2.You have Windows Vista on your computer, and are not happy with it. You would like to put Windows XP on instead. Windows XP is considered a lesser version, and Vista won't let it write over it.
Go to BIOS Setup, change the first boot device in Boot Order, to CDROM, and it will.

I want to install windows xp sp2 instead of windows vista. there is inbuilt windows vista for my laptop hp compaq 6720s.plz healp me how can i install windows xp.


It's a relatively simply procedure, 1st download all of the necessary drivers for your laptop from Compaq's website under the support section. You'll want the drivers for Window's XP. Either burn these drivers to a CD or place them on a flash drive. Also if you already have documents or data on the laptop that you would like to keep you'll need to back that up as well to either a CD/DVD or a flash drive.

Next you'll need a Windows XP installer disk. Place the disk in your laptop and reboot. The system should prompt you, asking you if you'd like to boot off of the CD press any key. Hit any key and the computer should boot from the XP CD. The system will take a while as it loads up the installer shell. If the system does not boot from the CD you will need to go into the BIOS or CMOS and change the boot order for the computer to make the CDROM or DVD ROM the 1st boot device. The 1st prompt on the installer should be a license agreement, hit F8 to continue. The next steps will pretty much be up to you. Things like where you want to install windows XP, do you want to format the drive, etc. This sounds like your 1st install so you may want to leave everything as default. Windows should detect your Vista install and by default install it as a seperate installation allowing you to boot into either OS.

After the OS has prepared the hard disk and copied all files the computer will reboot and will boot into a installer kernel and will prompt you for even more selections. This process will take longer than the initial portion and most of these settings you can leave at default as well. When this part is complete the system will reboot again and your installation of XP should be complete.

When the system boots into windows it will ask you to create a user name, create a user name or multiple ones. Put in your driver CD or flash drive and proceed to restore your files and install your drivers. That's the revised version of it anyway.

Good Luck!
