When you next try, format the drive using the install disc, it should give you the option for that when it first boots up. This will erase the drive totally and give a full, clean install.

Problem installing Vista SP1 on Asus G2s


If you tried to install Vista on the Primary drive and formatted the primary HDD your Factory Recovery Partition , most likely has been written over, it's gone. Choose one or the other , Vista or Win 7, start from the beginning, install a clean Vista load, formatting in the installation procedure, form a Vista Installation DVD, follow instructions, boot up, do ALL the Vista Updates, it will take hours of updates, rebooting, updates, rebooting. You will get to the Service Pack's 1 and 2, in 24 hours or so. Put on a pot of coffee and be patience. If you prefer Windows 7 use the same procedure.

I cannot get my Gateway zx6961 out of safe mode, I've tried pressing f12 like it says,and going to c drive and doing a system scan on reboot but nothing I've done has worked yet. Need help,


Boot with a Win 7 disc, and choose Repair Your Computer. Then use Startup Repair option.


If this does not work, use the Re-install Windows option. This should install on top and not wipe out.


A free legal Windows image can be downloaded. Check the MS Product Key sticker for what version your system came with. You may have to use your key. IT MUST BE THE SAME VERSION


Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit.

I have a toshiba satellite a205-4707 when i got it it would freeze at startup i had a ancient copy of xp pro sp1 i could only install with power cord unplugged.even after install if i plugged in power cord...

get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data

Download older version of Avira Antivir


Why xp SP1??.

If you dont update your OS, even with the best Antivirus you will be in big trouble with security breaches/holes.

IF your copy of windows will not pass the WGA then you are out of luck with Avira . Avira needs SP2 so you could try AVAST, its min requirements are.
Processor Pentium 3, 128 MB RAM, 100 MB of free hard disk space

My favourite programme - Print Artist 4 which has worked with all my computers up to and including XP will not work with Windows 7 - what can I do?


It means that this application is not compatible with Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, all you have to do is run the app in XP mode, which is really running an XP virtual machine inside of Windows 7. Just look in Windows help for instructions on how to do it. If you have Home Premium or less, they do not have XP mode. Instead you can download Virtual PC 2007 SP1 from the Microsoft web site for free, install it, then create a virtual machine that uses XP. You will have to have a licensed copy of XP to install on the virtual machine. Then install PrintArtist on the virtual machine and you are ready to go. You can use the virtual machine and Windows 7 on the host system simultaneously and can even exchange data between the two.

The disk itself may be corrupt , go to microsoft and download xp home or pro , whatever your using and burn to a disk .If you don't have access to another computer , go to a repair shop and you can usually buy a burn't copy of xp for 5 to 10 dollars . RE-install as usual. please note !!! you must know what service pack is needed for the install . SP1 - SP2 ....OR to be on the safe side just get XP SP1. good luck!
