How to repair Windows XP Master Boot Record (MBR) From time to time you will...


How to repair Windows XP Master Boot Record (MBR)

From time to time you will need a message on your computer when boot that states that your Operating System was not detected or that your primary hard drive was not found. When these messages come up alot of people think that there hard drive had fail. However alot of times it is just because the Master Boot Record on the hard drive got corrpted so the data on the drive can not be read properly. This also is the cause of the flash cursor that people will see from time to time.

Note in these cases you will always want to run a hard drive test before the reinstall of Windows as a drive failure could have caused the problem but run through the below step will alot of times show that the drive is fine.
The steps below will take you repairing the MBR on your har drive. Note to go through this process you will need your Windows XP OS CD.

1. The first thing you will need to do is boot your computer off your Windows XP OS CD. To do this you will need to go into your BIOS and change the boot order to have your ROM drive set as the first boot device. Note some OEM computers have a boot menu set to a hot key like F12. This option sould let you boot from the ROM drive without having to go into the BIOS.

2. After you have selected to boot you computer from the ROM drive with the Windows XP OS CD in the drive you will seee a message that states "press any key". You will need to press any key on your keyboard to have the computer boot off the Window XP OS CD.

3. After the setup loads you will want to select "R" to run the Windows XP Recovery Console

4. After the Windows Recovery Console loads you willl need to type the number that refers to the drive that you are wanting to repair. Note in most cases you will type "1" then press enter. Then you need to enter the Administrator password for the system. If you do not know it or does not work then at this point you will need to look at backing up for files with another computer and doing a full reinstall of Windows on the hard drive.

5. After you are able to enter the Administrator password you will be at a prompt here is where you will type "fixmbr". This will repair the damaged MBR. Inaddition will may want to run "fix boot" this will fix any issues with the boot sector.

Note if you still have trouble getting the system to boot properly after running through these steps you will want to do a backup of your files and do a full reinstall of Windows. Also run any hard drive tests to make sure there is not anything wrong with the hard drive.

How do I backup my files and folders in XP?


Windows XP comes with a backup tool called NTBACKUP (NTBACKUP.MSI from Windows XP CD-ROM). In Windows XP Home Edition, this tool has to be installed manually from the CD-ROM, whereas in Windows XP Professional, this tool is installed by default.
Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD to start a wizard that installs NTBackup: X:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP
X:\ refers to the CD-ROM drive-letter
Note: Usually, OEMs such as Compaq, DELL won't ship the Windows XP CD nor they include the NTBACKUP utility by default. You can download a copy of NTBACKUP.MSI here

Backing up your files using NTBackup Utility:
Click Start, Run and type NTBACKUP
Select Backup tab at the top
In the left pane, scroll to the file/folder which you want to backup and put a checkmark on it.
At the bottom, mention the output filename (the backup output)
Once set, click Start Backup button in the right, and again click Start Backup in resulting dialog

NTBACKUP does not have the ability to write to CDs directly. You will need to save the backup to hard drive, then transfer or burn it to a CD-ROM. Also, while backing up several files, make sure you backup the files in separate sets of each max 650MB (so that it fits on a CD-ROM)
See also FREE Windows Backup Software add-on for NTBackup
Enhanced Windows Backup uses Windows' built in backup engine called Windows Backup (ntbackup.exe) which provides state-of-the-art core backup technology. Enhanced Windows Backup substantially extends the capabilities of NTBackup, providing an effective integrated backup solution.

How to instal file 'asms The file 'Asms' on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 CD is needed" when installing WinXP Pro,


When you install Microsoft Windows XP, you may receive the following error message:
[Files Needed]
The file 'Asms' on Windows XP Professional CD-ROM is needed. Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK.
This issue may occur if the Setup program cannot communicate with the CD-ROM drive.
To resolve this issue, use the appropriate method for your computer.
Hard disk formatted with FAT or FAT32 file system
If the hard disk is formatted with the FAT file system or with the FAT32 file system, follow these steps:
Use a Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me) Startup disk with CD-ROM drivers to restart the computer.
Copy the Xcopy.exe tool from the Windows 98 Second Edition CD-ROM, the Windows Millennium Edition (Me) CD-ROM, or the hard disk to the Windows Startup disk. To do this, use the appropriate method.
Windows 98 Second Edition CD-ROM
Insert the Windows 98 Second Edition CD-ROM in the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then at the command prompt type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line, where cd-rom is the drive letter of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive:
c:
copy cd-rom:\win98\smartdrv.exe
copy cd-rom:\tools\oldmsdos\xcopy*.*
Windows Millennium Edition (Me) CD-ROM
Insert the Windows Millennium Edition (Me) CD-ROM in the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, at the command prompt type the following lines where cd-rom is the drive letter of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then press ENTER after you type each line:
c:
copy cd-rom:\win9x\smartdrv.exe
extract cd-rom:\win9x\win_17.cab xcopy.exe /L c:\ xcopy.exe
extract cd-rom:\win9x\win_17.cab xcopy32.exe /L c:\ xcopy32.exe
extract cd-rom:\win9x\win_19.cab xcopy32.mod /L c:\ xcopy32.mod
Hard disk
At the command prompt, type the following lines where drive is the drive letter of the hard disk where Windows is installed, and then press ENTER after you type each line:
c:
copy drive:\windows\smartdrv.*
copy drive:\windows\xcopy*.*
Eject the Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Me) CD-ROM, and then insert the Windows XP Professional CD-ROM.
Copy the I386 folder and all its subfolders to the hard disk. To do this, type the following lines at the command prompt where cd-rom is the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive, and drive is the drive letter of the hard disk, and then press ENTER after you type each line:
smartdrv
xcopy cd-rom:\i386 drive:\i386 /e
Restart the computer, and then start the Setup program again.
When you receive the error message, click Browse, and then type the path of the I386 folder on the hard disk.
Note You may be prompted several times for the location of this folder. If Browse is not available, see the "Hard disk formatted with NTFS file system" section.
Hard disk formatted with NTFS file system
If the hard disk is formatted with the NTFS file system and you are upgrading an earlier version of Windows, use one of the following methods.
Method 1
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/ ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
When you receive the error message, press SHIFT+F10 to start a command session.
Type regedit.exe, and then press ENTER.
Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
On the File menu, click Load Hive, and then load %Windir%\System32\Config\System.sav.
When you are prompted to specify a name, type Test.
Locate and then click the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Test\ControlSet1\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete the UPPERFILTERS and LOWERFILTERS registry keys.
Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the other ControlSet# keys under the Test hive.
Click File, and then click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
If the path in the error message is the correct drive letter for the CD-ROM drive, click OK to continue the Setup program.
If you receive the error message again, the Setup program cannot correctly read from the CD-ROM drive, or the path information is incorrect. In this case, restart your computer and let the Setup program resume.
Method 2
If you cannot start Regedit.exe at the command prompt, and there is another available partition where you can install Windows on the hard disk, follow these steps:
Install Windows in the other partition.
Start the new installation of Windows, and then start Regedit.exe.
Follow the steps in method 1, but load the System.sav hive from the original Windows folder.
Method 3
If you are not using a retail Windows XP CD-ROM with a hologram (for example, if you are using a burned CD-ROM), try to run the Setup program from a retail CD-ROM with a hologram. To verify this, start the computer by using Recovery Console, and then check the C:\$win_nt$.~ls folder. Look for the Asms folder. If the folder is missing or the files that it contains are zero bytes, the CD-ROM was not burned correctly.
For additional information about how to use Recovery Console, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

if this does not work, please ask s.o. who knows around with win 7 or think of downgrading from win7 to winxp professional.
as it is older but reliable, still supported and some win-pro's use it.
win 7 features are available but you'll need time to set up the whole system, incl. drivers etc.

this could work...if not ask me to post some links

HDD Partition help


Important If you follow these steps on a hard disk that is not empty, all the data on that hard disk is permanently deleted. We recommend that you back up your hard disk before you follow these steps.
To partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program:

1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, or insert the first Windows XP Setup disk into the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer.

Note To start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM (or from the startup disk), your computer must be configured to start from the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the floppy disk drive. In some cases, you may have to modify your computer's BIOS settings to set this configuration. For information about how to configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive, the DVD-ROM drive, or the floppy disk drive, see the documentation that is included with your computer, or contact the computer manufacturer.

2. If you are starting the computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM, select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do this.

Note If your hard disk controller requires a third-party original equipment manufacturer (OEM) driver, press F6 to specify the driver.

For additional information about how to use F6 to supply a third-party OEM device driver while the Windows Setup program is running, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

314859 Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during Windows XP Setup If you are starting from the Windows XP Setup disks, insert each of the additional disks when you are prompted, and then press ENTER to continue after you insert each disk.

3. At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.

4. Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.

5. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.

6. All the existing partitions and the unpartitioned spaces are listed for each physical hard disk. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition by using unpartitioned space. If you press D to delete an existing partition, you must then press L (or press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm that you want to delete the partition. Repeat this step for each of the existing partitions that you want to use for the new partition. When all the partitions are deleted, select the remaining unpartitioned space, and then press C to create the new partition.

Note If you want to create a partition where one or more partitions already exist, you must first delete the existing partition or partitions, and then create the new partition.

7. Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.

8. Repeat Steps 4 and 5 to create additional partitions if you want them.

9. If you want to install Windows XP, use the ARROW keys to select the partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER. If you do not want to format the partition and install Windows XP, press F3 two times to quit the Windows Setup program, and then do not follow the remaining steps. In this case, you must use a different utility to format the partition.

10. Select the format option that you want to use for the partition, and then press ENTER. You have the following options:

Format the partition by using the NTFS file system (Quick) 
Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick) 
Format the partition by using the NTFS file system 
Format the partition by using the FAT file system 
Leave the current file system intact (no changes) 


The option to leave the current file system intact is not available if the selected partition is a new partition. The FAT file system option is not available if the selected partition is more than 32 gigabytes (GB). If the partition is larger than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT32 file system (you must press ENTER to confirm). If the partition is smaller than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT16 file system.

Note If you deleted and created a new System partition, but you are installing Windows XP on a different partition, you will be prompted to select a file system for both the System and startup partitions. 11. After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue. After the Windows Setup program is completed, you can use the Disk Management tools in Windows XP to create or format more partitions.
