EMachines ET1810-01 trying to install xp pro on clean hd, cmos does not show hard drive and xp says there is no hd. it is connected. how do i get it to find the hd?


You need to format your hard drive. Set your boot device to cdrom in your bios. Boot using xp cd.DO a reinstall of windows and it should give you the option to format or delete partitions on your hard drive. if that doesnt work try putting the hard drive in another computer to see if it works. Or you can buy a hard drive enclosure that allows you to use your hard drive as an external device.

Emachine EL 1200 06w Restore ???



tjbrown527 --

I have no idea about the difference between XP Home and "Nettops", lol! But, I can help you restore :)

Reboot your PC, when the very first screen comes up (the manufacturer's screen, the one before the Windows splash) press and hold F8 (or tap repeatedly). This will take you to a boot-options menu. Choose "Boot in Safe Mode", allow windows to load.

When it is finished loading, you may be given an automatic choice of either running System Restore, or finish loading in Safe Mode. Choose System Restore, and restore to a date (on the little calander) sometime before your issues came up.

If you are not prompted automatically, and instead it loads to the desktop, go to Start Button ---> Help and Support ---> and under "Pick a Task" choose "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". Again, pick a date and let 'er rip!

(you can also find it in Start Button ---> Programs ---> Accessories ---> System Tools ---> System Restore)

*****If you are not having problems with your boot, and simply want to restore, you can skip the F8 way and just go straight to restore from your normal desktop!

Whew! Hope some of this helps!

If you need any further assistance, please feel free to post a comment to this post and I will be glad to help!

NTLDR is missing. Press ctl+alt+del to restart.


I assume you are using Windows XP. This is what you do:

Windows XP users
  1. Get a Windows Installation CD. It doesn't have to be yours, anyone will do.
  2. Insert the Windows XP CD into the computer.
  3. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  4. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to lauch the Recovery Console to repair Windows.
  5. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  6. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password. If you have none set, just press Enter without typing anything.
  7. Copy the below two files to the C:\ directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example, the files from the CD-ROM drive (which in this case is "D:\" are copied to the C:\ drive. This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy D:\i386\ntldr C:\ (hit Enter)
    copy D:\i386\ntdetect.com C:\ (hit Enter)

  8. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
If you have any more questions or this is not clear to you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Installation windows xp emachine t5082


You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!

Boot application from cdrom?


Recovery cds work only on the laptop at its original state, meaning not yet formatted, because the recovery disk is linked to the system to restore minor errors on the OS... Those cds have become useless since "he formatted the notebook", inside is not already the original files... Buy a windows XP installer and install it bu yourself... it is very easy....

Good luck....
