I can't boot bootable usb from it what to do?


If your BIOS does not have in the boot up device order the USB then the computer cannot boot up with an USB memory device.
In this case Windows XP cannot enable an USB port until Windows is up and running.

How do you wipe a computer with windows xp, without the cd or a floppy. there has to be a way to use a usb. (computer wont boot passed welcome screen). don't need to save xp either.


If your system supports it you can go into your Bios (right when computer starts booting up you press (usually "Delete" key) to enter Bios setup.
In the Bios you go to Boot devices, any devices set up for booting will show in a list in numerical order, this order is the order your system gives preference for booting. Most times you will see your hard drive and your cd drive already there. Select the first one and open the pop up menu for it (on the right side of the screen it should tell you what key to hit to change the value), if your USB device is there then select it to be your first boot device. Then hit the key for that 'Exits and Saves Changes' (usually F10). This exits Bios and starts your system booting up again.

Before you boot up though you need to have your memory stick set up with either Windows Install files (i.e. burning the windows install disc to your usb device) or format your USB device to be a boot disc (this will only then allow you to boot to a DOS prompt though and you would still need the Windows files)

I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOWS XP HOW


Purchase XP system disks, set the BIOS boot order on your notebook to DVD/CD Rom as first boot device.
Place your XP disk in the DVD drive and boot. Navigate your way through the language and set up menus.
There may not be drivers available anymore for XP as it is an OS no longer supported by Microsoft.
There is a selection of drivers here at Hp.com

Hope that helps.

Dell dimension 5100 original partitions have been wiped .. Now need to reinstall xp . I can not. Selected boot device not available. can not do ctrl-f11 anymore of course btw just in case you were thinking...


If you are getting message the message "selected boot device not available" that is because you have do not have a bootable HDD (Hard Disk). Please do the following:

Insert the Windows XP Operating system Disk.
Restart the computer and start Tapping the F12 key, It will give you the boot options.
Select to boot from CD/DVD-Rom
When prompted press any key to boot from CD-Rom
Once the computer is booted from CD, follow the instructions to install the Operating system.
Note: You can also go to BIOS (by pressing F2 or Delete) and change the boot device to CD-ROM

Once you finish installing the Windows Operating system. You can go ahead with installation of your Linux Operating system. After you finish Installing Linux you will get the option in GRUB to select the Operating systems.

If you have already installed Linux and want to install the Windows, Follow the same procedure but it will directly boot Windows after you finish Installing Windows. You will have to write the GRUB again for your Linux system.

Please get back for any further assistance.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.

Purchased latitude d600 from sale how can I install my windows xp


Press F12 as you boot up the Dell and select the CD as the alternate boot device, insert the Windows installation CD in the CD drive and continue.
If you can't select the CD as the alternate boot device then go into the BIOS configuration then the Boot order and select the CD as the first boot device, save and exit. You can change it back after Windows is installed if you wish.

Hard Drive Prevents any other windows device from loading


Hi, Mark Here.
Yes the setup on the xp install puts drivers into memory, but being an older version of windows B4 sta was out it does not have drivers to support it.

You could go to Microsoft & search for a new version of setup install drivers that includes sta, & download to thumb.
Really typical Windows Failure (driver not available freeze up or blue screen).
