How do u get to the repair your pc on the start up disk. My pc just went down one day with out warning it says registry corrupt or missing insert installation disk n restart your ps I insert the disk...


Mr. Randee, you need a bootable disc or should i say cd installer like windows xp professional. Turn on your computer and tap DEL key or F2 key, it will enter you to cmos/bios setup. When already in cmos/bios look for the bios features setup using arrow keys and when highlighted it press enter. Then look for the boot sequence and make the cd or dvdrom drive first boot by pressing - or + or pageup or pagedown to modify. When you already changed the boot sequence press F10 key to save the settings then press Y. While restarting insert the Microsoft CD installer and when ask you for press any key, press any key to boot or start booting from cd or dvdrom drive. Let the cd installer run and when the computer ask for enter, repair or skip press R for repair. Then it will load to repair setup, type 1 for c:\windows and press enter. Type fixboot and enter and press Y for yes after that type fixmbr and enter and press Y for yes then type exit. After that wait to restart your computer and eject the cd installer and the computer will automatically load to windows. Have a good day!

I want to install windows xp on my acer 4230


Hi shaikh_shaha

Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.

If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on

Does this help?

XP Downgrade


You need to start windows setup straight from cd. To do so you may need to change the boot sequence from bios.You will also need a bootable windows xp cd (not the upgrade version). Setup xp as new installation. Ensure you can get all necessary drivers and software for windows xp.

Hint: Vista works fine if it has enough ram memory, and you wont lose your valid licence and all software provided with vista.

cheers

Reinstall xp


You have to make certain that the system BIOS are set correctly to boot your CD drive first. If you BOOT sequence is set correctly any cd that is bootable should begin to boot first. So try I believe to depress F2 when you boot up your PC for the first time this takes you into the system setup. System BIOS, goto the boot menu and change the settings to make certain that your CD drive is the first to boot. When you reboot your PC make certaint the CD is in the drive before you reboot. In addition you will quickly see a sentence pop up asking you if you would like to begin setup, and if so, depress any key to boot from cd. This should start the process for you!
