Depending upon your CMOS you will get the option of going to CMOS setup by pressing a particular key. I don't know yours wether it is Del key or Alt plus F12 or something else just look closely for it on the first black startup screen. Once you are inside your CMOS setup just go to the Advanced chipset settings and select first boot device as your USB. Now your main worry is which USB you are connecting your pen drive to. So if in CMOS you get many USB options then select one of any and keep on changing till you get the line boot through usb or boot through external media. Also keep in mind boot through other devices shall be enabled. Now save the settings and exit. If you require any further assistance just ask for it.
Thankyou for using free utlity at fixya.

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

How to reformat pentium 4 2.8g to windows xp


Since Windows XP isn't a filesystem, that doesn't quite make sense, but it sounds like you want to find or buy a Windows XP DVD, put it in the machine's DVD drive, enter the BIOS to check your settings and set it to boot from CD-ROM (it works for DVDs too, after all,) save settings and reboot...then install WinXP.

Keep in mind that if you have unsaved data on the system's hard drive, you would want to swap it out for a new one until Windows XP (or Ubuntu, or Fedora 15, much more modern OS which are quite capable of running WinXP programs using a program environment called 'wine' (no relation to drvino.com)) is installed; that way you're not going to overwrite old stuff you wanted to keep.

Then you can install the old drive on whatever interface is handy and migrate your settings over, make backups, use the old drive for pagefile or to try new filesystems and virtualization environments, etc.

I have 1 note book LG X120 with windows 7. when im trying to install Windows XP proffessional through a USB CD ROM its showing the following Message * To specify additional SCSI adapters, CD-ROM...


Hi lionking2022!

Since this is a USB CD_ROM, you need change some settings in the bios for it to be detected and the system will actually boot from it.

1. You enter your BIOS

2. Look for the tab that will contain IDE settings

3. Change it to AHCI

4. Save and Exit

You may know try to boot from cd-rom and install your windows xp.

After the setup or installation is finished don't forget to changed it back to SATA or whatever the setting was.

Hope this will help.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Missing operating system toshiba nb100


I wonder if you actually have a Mac OS on your Toshiba laptop, as this is nearly impossible (only for experts): 1) If you purchased from an authorized seller (I doubt it) - return the laptop for replacement.
2) If you can't claim anything from the seller - install the operation system yourself. If your feel being an expert, here are instructions for installing Mas OS on your PC: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Installation_Guides and user experience: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t144614.html
3) However, I would recommend you to download, copy to DVD and install a Linux Ubuntu distribution instead: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download or purchase Windows from any computer store.

Cannot see HD in toshiba satalitte l40170 in booting


In some markets the L40-170 is sold without an Operating System.

I assume this is in booting off a Windows XP CD, as Vista, Win7 and Linux (Ubuntu) will recognise the HD on boot.

The L40-170 has a SATA-Hard drive with no compatible mode. WinXP will not natively recognize it.

You need to download the SATA driver from Toshiba-Europe and either:

a)Place it on a USB floppy disk and install it when the Windows installer prompts for external drivers. (This is unlikely to work unless you have a Toshiba branded device)

b) Integrate the sata drivers into a windows installation using software like nLite. (You might as well integrate all the L40-170 drivers and the XP service packs at the same time.)

Caution: Don't use software to extract the drivers off a working machine, the drivers required for windows installer are different from those required by the OS. Rather download them from Toshiba.

How to format notebook without cd room


There are a few ways you can do this.
First would be to obviously get an external cd-rom. Im assuming you dont want to do that... Second, you could use another computer to put a copy of an operating system on a USB stick. You could then boot from the usb stick:

Windows XP guide: http://www.eeeguides.com/2007/11/installing-windows-xp-from-usb-thumb.html

Alternately, you could install ubuntu from a netinstall, but that will not get rid of windows. It will just give you the ability to boot ubuntu in case windows is corrupted. http://wubi-installer.org/
