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).

In doing a system restore i managed to wipe out windows in my el1852w ..now the screen says,install windows..X Windowscould not complete the installation.to install windows on this computer restart...


As PC starts watch screen for message "to enter setup press del" or similar. (press F!, press F2, press F12).Power down the PC and then power it back up. Be ready to press the KEY to enter setup while message is on screen. If you do not see the "enter setup" try holding the delete key as machine powers up.
Then repeat while holding F1 key etc. Once you enter setup (CMOS SETUP) find the boot settings and select CD as first boot drive. Put your full install CD in the CD drive have the license code ready. Example; AB123-1RD5C-XP94D-MN47G-LRIPQ. Your key will be on the CD sleeve or license sticker on PC. With install CD in drive power PC up. The PC should boot from the install CD. Do a full install on C drive. This should format your C drive erasing everything on drive C. Format with NTFS (new technology file system). During install the PC will restart a few times. At one point it will require you to type in license code. About half way thru install you will be instructed to remove all disks from drives, at this point you enter setup (CMOS) again and change from boot from CD as first choice TO boot from HD and second choice boot from CD. If you can not complete install you may have a hardware problem. GIVE plenty of time for each install step. Install may appear to have stopped but it will continue when it has completed that step.

Cannot format new hard drive and install windows XP on a dell 530S


Are you sure your Recovery Disk has the operating system on it? If so, you should be able to just put it in the cd drive and boot from it to do the install. Make sure you hit the Function Key (F1 thru F12) that will allow you to select which device you want to boot from (Select the CD Drive).

Once it start sometimes you'll still have to watch the screen and press any key to boot from the cd when prompted.

Reinstalling


Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

How do i erase a hard drive with a os on it i need to install a hard drive on a pc but the os on messess up booting when i plug it it


press DEL key as soon as the PC is booting. it will enter BIOS, find "Boot priority" and change the "First Boot Device" to CDROM. then save and exit.

If you are installing Windows, watch out for the message "Press any key to boot from CD....." then follow on-screen instructions.

If you are installing Linux, it will boot to CD drive when it found the Linux boot CD.

Dell Inspiron 1501 - tries to boot


Go into your BIOS by pressing F2 and make sure the cd drive is the first boot device. Install the operating system cd first and go thru that. Then you'll need to install the drivers and utilities disk. After that you can put the applications cd in and choose what programs you want to install off of that.

Thats the order you should install the cd's. Assuming your hard drive is good then everything should go thru. If you need more help then let me know and I'll help you as much as I can. I'll be here for a while.

When you boot up off of the operating system cd. It will say press any key to boot up off of the cd, be sure to do that so it boots up off of the cd and goes into the system setup.

I have an e-machine, my hard drive was corrupted, thus I just replaced the same, I have to re-install all the software from the recovery disc. I have installed th hard drive, when I press the power button...


1. Make sure the two cables are installed in the back of the optical drive.
2. When you start your computer, press the key that it tells you to go into system setup or BIOS. From there, you need to find the boot device and/or boot order option and select the optical drive as the first boot device.
3. Press F10 to save and exit, making sure the first recovery disc is in the optical drive.
4. Save and exit; your computer should boot now from the optical drive.

Install Windows XP without a CD drive


You'll need to assign the CD drive (which should show up as USB devicein BIOS or setup) as first boot device, if capable on your model/Computer. After you press power button, you should see a menu or dialog that shows something like 'press F2' or 'Delete' to enter setup. Once in setup, you should navigate thru until you find boot options or something of that nature. Select 'Boot from CD' or ' USB Device'. You should now insert your XP CD into the drive, close the tray, then choose 'Save'. It should now let you boot from the XP CD. At the first screen, you should select 'R' for repair console. It will then ask you to select an installation, type a '1' and then press the 'Enter' key. Next line will ask you to type an Administrator password. If you have one, type it, then press Enter. If no password, just tap the Enter key. Now, at the prompt, type CHKDSK C: /r as in (C: a space /r). then tap the Enter. It shoild now attempt to repair your Windows 2000 installation. When it finishes, reboot, go back into Setup and change first boot device to hard drive. Select Save and reboot LT. Have fun!
