Are you trying to set up the router or you are trying to connect to the wireless network ?
I think you are running the set up CD for the router.
If you are trying to add windows vista to the network and
If your router is already set up and you are able to go online on another computer then you don't need to run the CD again.
If you are trying to set up the router then you can do it manually also.

How to reformat a computer


Performing a Clean Installation of Windows Vista is the preferred installation method. An alternate method available is an "Upgrade" installation. I do not recommend upgrading. Too many things can go wrong with an upgrade and I have seen this many many times with all Windows operating systems over the years. A Clean Installation gives your system 'clean' file paths which will create a much faster and reliable installation.


The instructions below will apply to those that would like to:


Do a clean installation on a computer without an existing operating system.
Replace an existing operating system and replace it with Windows Vista.
Install Windows Vista on a separate partition.
Note: These instruction will work fine for both 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.

<>Getting Ready to Install Vista:


I would recommend, even before purchasing Vista, that you check that all of your 'needed' hardware and software will function in the Vista environment. Download the Vista Upgrade Advisor to check your hardware. The Vista Upgrade Advisor will help you identify and possibly resolve any Vista compatibility issues that may exist in your computer system.

Be sure that you update all drivers (video card, monitor, sound card ...etc.) for all of your installed devices.

You will need to check with the software maker to find out if it is going to be compatible with Vista.

<>Clean Install Over An Existing Operating System:


Before performing a clean installation of Windows Vista, be sure that you have backed up any data that you would like to keep. A clean installation of Vista will mean erasing all data and starting from scratch. Use your preferred backup method. If you need backup instructions for Windows XP, click the link below:


Manually Backup Windows XP

<>Configure your BIOS to boot from the DVD:


When you insert your Windows Vista Installation DVD, it should automatically launch. If it doesn't launch, try restarting your system with the DVD inserted in the DVD drive. If it still won't launch, you will need to configure your BIOS to make your current installation boot from your DVD drive. To gain access to your systems BIOS you will need to refer to your particular systems operating instructions. However, most of the time, by pressing the F2 or the Delete (one or the other, not both) key repeatedly once your system boots to the "logo screen" will give you access to "Setup". Also, many systems have a boot menu that lists something like:


Press F12 for setup


If this is your case, simply press F12 when given that prompt. In any case, once you are in setup, configure your DVD drive to the top of the boot order. Save the change and exit setup.


[Top]


<>Begin your Clean Installation of Windows Vista:


Place the Windows Vista installation DVD in to your DVD drive, then reboot your system to allow the DVD to launch. At your first prompt, press any key to continue the process. Click Next and then click "Install Now" when prompted.

You will now be at the "Get important updates for installation" page. It is highly recommended (if you have an Internet connection at this point) to go ahead and install any available updates to ensure a successful installation. Once you've received the updates, click Next.

You will now be asked for your product key information. Your product key is located on your DVD case. Insert your 25 digit product key then click Next.

Now, you should be at the License Agreement screen. Feel free to read through the whole thing but it is going to take you quite awhile. You must "Accept" the licensing agreement to continue. Click Next once you're comfortable with the licensing agreement.

This next screen contains the main installation options. Select "Custom Install" (this is the correct option for a clean installation). Click Next.

Setup will now ask where you would like to install Windows Vista. You will see the available partitions on your system. You will need to select the "boot" partition (usually C:). If your boot partition has a previous version of Windows installed on it, you will want to delete this partition and the create a new boot partition. Create any additional partitions as desired, just be sure that each partition you create is formatted. Once you're done, click Next.

From here, the prompts may vary depending on your particular system. Just follow the on-screen prompts to install Vista to your systems configuration.

Once Windows Vista installs the necessary files to run, it will restart twice. It is important that you leave the installation disk in the DVD drive until the Windows Vista is completely installed. After the first restart, you will be asked to insert any Username and Password that you would like to use and a Name for your PC. Additionally, you will be asked for the following information:
Time and Date settings
Current Location (home or office)
After all of your information is successfully received, Vista will boot a second time. After it boots successfully, you can safely remove the Windows Vista installation DVD.


Congratulations! I hope that you get many years of enjoyment out of your new Windows Vista operating system!


Important!: Make sure that you install proper anti-virus and anti-spyware programs to protect your new Windows installation. See the article below for some recommendations:


Secure a New Computer
[Top]


<>After a Successful Installation:


When installing Windows Vista with another Windows operating system already installed. Vista will create a file called, Windows.old" on your boot drive. Once everything is running fine on your new Vista installation and you are sure that you have your old data already backed up, it is safe to delete the Windows.old file. This file could be nearly 30 gigabytes in size. Just do a simple search for this file then right click and delete it. You will, of course, need Administrator privileges to do so.

If you receive an error that; "you do not have sufficient permission" when deleting this folder, the reason may be that you need to take ownership of the file and its contents, here's how:


1. Right click the Windows.old file and then select Properties.
2. Select the Security tab.
3. Click the Advanced button.
4. Select the Owner tab.
5. Click on the Edit button.
6. Confirm at the UAC warning prompt
7. Select Change ownership.

We need a driver for the Lexmark z65 for our Windows Vista and our Windows 7 systems.


Welcome to Fixya

Lexmark already discontinued supporting this product. The last driver made for this product is for Windows XP only. Yo may try this work around procedure if you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7. Download CJXP65NLE.exe at Drivers and Downloads (under Windows XP) from the Lexmark website. This file downloads as a zip file. Download it and unzip but do not allow the automatic Setup file run(Note where the file saved to). Now go into the Control panel and under the Printer Icon select Add a printer. Add local printer under existing port using virtual USB printer port. Now select "Have Disk" and select the folder that the Lexmark file unzipped to. Continue the installation. You might get some warnings that the driver is not Digitally signed, ignore them to finish the installation. Once the installation is complete your printer should work. The only downside I've seen so far is that the printer's full features from the original Z65 software are not available.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I want to do partition of my hard disk.So please help me


You need to partition your hard drive before you install an operating system on it. If you boot off your windows CD and your hard drive has a partition already you will get a screen that prompts you to format it. You can also dellete the partition and make a new partition. AT that time you can select the size of the partition you want to make and creat multiple partitions. If you choose you can creat one smaller partition from the space available for you to format and install windows on and format the rest of the available space later on after windows is installed from the Administration Tools in control panel.

Cannot start up new vista computer


Greetings,
Seems that the installation of windows update got interrupted that might have caused the registry changes for your Operating system. You can try repairing the windows.
simply put the Operating System cd in the drive and restart the computer.
follow the setup instructions.
you will have a "Repair" option during OS install. If the same does not work then you will have to select the format option instead of repair, but the same should not be a problem as you just got a new comp which does not have any data.

Regards,

Failure to load windows


If you can try a different hard drive. And make sure the format of the hard drive that's installed doesn't freeze or doesn't complete.
Those are just the first things that popped into my mind,
I'm sure other's will have more suggestions.
Good luck.
