I just installed LinuxOS Live CD, and I cant get the rewritable disk I have to come up, like it did in Microsoft XP. I used to see the Removable Drive so I could click it and it would show up. I dont know what to click here.

    This may sound a bit obvious, but why not just use Windows?

The answer to previous post is... because winbloze sucks.

I have ran many linux distros but If your brand new to linux I would strongly recommend installing PCLinuxOS. I used it to replace XP on my cheap laptop and it rocks! For the very few non-alternative winbloze apps that I still have to run, I run them in an XP virtual machine using virtualbox inside linux. Unless you have some stupidly oddball writer, PCLOS will detect it & set it all up for you. Just download the live cd iso from here, burn it to disk on another machine, boot and install. Life in Linux is sweet!

I cannot start my e-Machines 350-21G16i netbook. I`m being told that the following file is either missing or corrupt: "<Windows root >\system32\hal.dll" "Please re-install...


HAL.dll is a critical file of Windows - it's the only file that connects Windows with the hardware. This message appears when this file is either missing or not where it's supposed to be. Just 2 things can cause that: a failure of the hard disk or a severe Windows corruption. This in turn can be caused by 2 things : a serious virus infection(usually) or a really bad program that was running just before this message appeared.
The best way to fix this is to perform a full reinstall and then add only the absolute necessary programs. If the problem returns quickly then the hard disk is dying and you will have to replace it.

Everytime i open the computer it reads the feature you are trying to use is on a cd rom or removable disk insert the aiosotwarenpidisk


"AIOsoftwareNPI" is included on the CD that came with your HP All In One printer. Place the HP All In One disk into the optical drive (CD / DVD ROM drive) and restart the computer. "AIOsoftwareNPI" will automatically be installed after boot.

If unable to locate the ****, go to HP's website to download the disk for your particular All In One printer.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Computer booting time ntdlr missing displayed how to repair this ..? i insert the windows xp booting cd but then displays press any key but my keyboard is usb key board i cant press any key......pls help...


Make sure there is no removable disk in any drive that may be causing the error.

If thats not it then place the CD in the CD drive and boot to the recovery console

use the recovery console to copy NTLDR from another machine

How do i format a Cd on windows xp


1 Open your disk drive2_bing.gif. Ensure that your disk drive is empty before proceeding, some CDs, especially CD-RWs, will be erased if you skip this step.
  • Step 2 Place CD-RW into CR-R drive. The disk drive may automatically detect this is an empty or "clean" disk. If so, skip to step 4.
  • Step 3 Find the disk. Click on "Start," then "My Computer," then on "Devices with Removable Storage," and then right-click on the CD-RW icon.
  • Step 4 Format the disk. Select "Format Disk" from either the drop down menu on Step 3 or from the Dialog Box in Step 2. This process should take only a few minutes to complete. If your CD-RW has information on it already, you may select "Erase CD-RW" instead of "Format Disk."

    ok you need to goto the microsoft web page
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545

    but unfortunatly you need a xp disk to do this
    i am unaware of anyway to fix it without the disk as you need to rewrite from the disk to get windows working
    if it was an oem install then forget it you need the oem disk
    if YOU installed xp just get a disk that is compatable with your version

    (PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS ON MS PAGE FIRST)

    Windows not booting


    Hello,

    Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.

    Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.

    thanks

    Hi,
    Use a friend's computer to download the files from compaq website. Then copy them to a cd disc or better yet to a usb removable disc (thumb drive or flash drive). Then install to your laptop.

    Good day, Forwork

    I recommend, you take out the hard drive, put in the other IDE port, presumming is IDE drive, and let the DVD cd rewritable on Cable Select.
    Another try, is Start Up on Save mode, and uninstall the drivers for your particular CD/DVD device, and restart your PC, then the system Should install them automatically, or you can do it manually. this should fix your problem.
    Good Luck! (presuming you use Windows Xp)
