OK I think I know what you are trying to say but if anything does not apply feel free to ignore it.

You had a PC with an OS installed but you have replaced the HDD with a new one which has no OS installed and is not even formatted.

Have you tried installing an OS on your new drve yet or not or have I totally misunderstood your problem?

I would like to ask, how did you install the operating system onto the new drive? Term refers to a format or configuration that was stopped before it completed its taks. If you are certan your files are good, I would recommend making the second hhd a slave and copy all the files to the new hard.

Can i remove a pirate copy of windows 7 and replace it with my genuine copy of windows xp


Hello,
you would need to insert to XP disc in the cd drive and reboot the pc. As the pc reboot whatch for "Press any key to boot from disk". This will make the pc bypass the hard drive and load the boot file from the XP disk. Once you have answered the inital start questions, it will give the option to format the hard drive or create an extended drive. If Win 7 is not needed any more, I strongly suggest doing the format and have a fresh, new install of XP, Genuine copy.

Good luck.

I am trying to install a Windows OS on my presario S6000CL. I cannot boot up to bios to start the from the cd. I am trying to bypass the hard drive boot up. Any suggestions?


Try pressing the DEL button during startup. Be sure to start pushing it repeatedly right after turning on the power or you will miss it and it will just boot normally.

If that doesn't work, try F1, F2, F8, F10, or F12.

One of them is going to work, just keep trying. It's not unusual to miss it a couple times so be patient.

Once you get in to the bios just switch your cd/dvd drive to be the first boot device and your hard drive after that then save changes and exit.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

The netbook can't detect the hard drive and doesn't boot up at all upon startup. Tried re-installing Windows XP from my external DVD rom but when it reached the middle of the install, message comes up...


Hello.

It's possible that your Master Boot Record is corrupted. To fix:

First, restart your computer with the Windows XP setup disk in the CD drive.
2. When prompted, boot from the CD drive by pressing any key. If Windows loads automatically, you will first have to enter the BIOS setup and change the order of the boot devices to start with the CD drive.
3. Once the setup loads, you will see the option to press R to repair a Windows installation.
4. Once the Recovery Console loads up, you will have to type in a number that corresponds to your Windows installation. This is normally just 1. Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password.
5. Now at the prompt, type in fixmbr. Your damaged MBR will now be replaced with a new master boot record and your computer should now be able to boot properly. Also run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector with a new one.

If still a problem, your hard drive is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.

Hope this resolves your problem.

My HP Compaq Presario V2000 PC Notebook start and stay's on the windows xp splash screen. I have tried loading it in safe mode and last good config but none works.


Hi
Of course without seeing it I can't make an exact diagnosis. My first though is that you have a bad sector on the hard drive which keeps Windows from loading because the head can't recover data under the bad sector. Slave this hard drive to a good one and back up the data. Download a copy of hdtune.exe. You can confirm the status of the hard drive with this. If you find bad sectors - replace the drive

Want to sell presario 700 how do I clean out the hard drive remove all my information


Very simple process. Go into your bios and make sure it is set to boot from the floppy drive first. You can go online to bootdisks.com and download a windows 98 boot disk. Jut copy it to the floppy and boot from the floppy. This will bypass your windows start up and start in dos mode. Once booted up, just type in the following:
format c: and your hard disk will be formatted and wiped clean

When I try to put XP on my Compaq Presario C500, it cannot find the hard drive and will not try to load it. I have already done a diagnostic on the hard drive and it is working perfectly. What can I do?


I take it that the hard drive is a not the normal IDE but rather a SATA (newer technology) drive. Inthat case you can in some cases change the Hard drive setting in the CMOS setup from ENHANCED to IDE-MODE under STA drives. That causes the installation to detect the drive as an 'IDE" drive in which case it then can install windows. The normal windows installation cannot always detect SATA drives while installing and then reports that there is NO drive attache to the computer

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.

Will not let me Restore windows


Sounds like your hard drive is dead. If you can get to the XP recovery console with the XP cd, try running:
chkdsk /r
(it takes about 30+mins to finish) to repair the hard drive. It should work if you are able to run that. Otherwise it will tell you it failed because of the bad hard drive.
