Dear! Your problem is a serious problem.
Your hard drive format is not support or disappear so you should use a program which name is Active Partiton Recovery. This program does not help you to access the drive while it saves your whole data and hard drive back up with its format. So hurry up now and use this software as soon as possible. Using this software you need a reboot and your data will be save and accessible. I assure you will be glad and enjoy.
Thank You

Hi,
This sounds like the case of the SATA drive not being recognized by the XP install disk.
What you need is third party drivers from Intel, these special drivers are called "Matrix Storage Manager drivers".
You can download them from Intel here >>>>>>>




http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2101




You will also need a USB floppy drive and floppy disk for you put the drivers on, once you have your drivers on the floppy and read the read me file that comes with the download start your install again and watch for the "press F6 to install third party drivers" prompt.
Press F6 when you see the prompt and you should be able to install XP without any problems.

Good luck.

Computer wont bootup windows xp error loading operating system drive 1 not found please help me


1.Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

.
If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.
3.
Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.

Performing a repair installation of Windows XP can fix many serious startup problems. While you should not lose any of your important documents, you might lose settings, and you will need to reinstall many updates.
Before performing a repair installation of Windows XP, you should have both your Windows XP CD and your product key available.
To perform a repair installation of Windows XP
1.
Insert your Windows XP CD into your computer.
2.
Restart your computer. If prompted, press a key to start from the CD-ROM.
When the Welcome to Setup page appears, press ENTER on your keyboard.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then, press F8.
When prompted, press R to have Windows XP attempt to repair Windows by reinstalling important Windows components.
The repair and reinstallation process might take more than an hour. Eventually, Setup prompts you to answer questions just as if you were installing Windows XP for the first time. For detailed instructions, read Install Windows XP.

I have an aleinware PC and it starts booting and then asks if I want to start in Safe mode? How do I get it to start in normal mode


If it ONLY will start in Safe Mode, you'll have to perform a "Repair Install" of Windows. If "Safe Mode" is selected as one of the options that includes other options, scroll down to "Start Windows Normally" (I'm assuming you have Windows XP).

If the problem persists, you're most likely to need to do a Repair Install: Insert your original Windows XP CD, boot, and press a key whan it says "Boot from CD?". Select "Install" from the menu, and when you get to the Install screen, select "R" for repair. It will reinstall Windows afresh; then go to Microsoft Update and apply all patches and fixes to get back to proper operation.

Windows xp logo will start to load then......


To solve this will require more information from you. The Blue screen is Windows way of telling you that it has a driver issue with a basic component, usually your video card. Did you recently make any hardware changes? If so please let me know what was changed.

When windows first boots, you can repeatedly press the F8 key until you see a menu giving you choices of windows booting. You need to select Safe Mode. Safe mode should allow you to at least boot without a blue screen. The blue screen could also be cause by a virus or other software.

Microsoft has a description of Safe mode here;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222
but here is a quick snippet
To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.

There several possible reasons why your computer reboot after getting to the windows screen. one is a corrupt or incompatible driver that was installed on your system, try to boot on safe mode(press F8 during the POST(power on self test) for newer computer this will come as a flash on your screen, when you are being prompted how to you want to start windows just the safe mode then check if your computer will start up properly if it is then a driver or an application may have cause the boot problem try to perform a system restore and put the state back when it was working properly you can check out this link if your problem will fall on one of the following problem http://www.aumha.org/win4/a/shutdown.htm
.
Now if safe modem will not fix the problem, the boot.ini maybe corrupted, check this link on how to re-install/fix corrupted boot.ini http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330184 this process requires your Windows installation CD.

Hope this will help you solve your start up problem with your computer.
