Question about ViewSonic Tablet PC V1100

1 Answer

Can't install xp - freezes

I have a viewsonic v1100 tablet pc with no cd/dvd drive or floppy.
I can't install xp.

I've partitioned the drive using a usb caddy and placed the content of my xp cd on the 2nd partition. I've used usb keys to boot to dos and try to install from the i386 folder using winnt.exe, it won't work because it thinks the usb key is c:

I installed dos and tried to instal xp from there, xp freezes or quits or just shuts off in the middle of the file copy process.

I installed win 98 on an old laptop, pulled the drive halfway and put it in the tablet and managed to finish an install, tried to upgrade... freezes... tried a new install from 98, freezes.

I've installed xp on a 2nd machine and did the motherboard swap thing where you choose generic drivers for everything and it worked but I somehow lost the boot sector and couldn't boot from the HD.

I purchased a new hard drive and did all that again.
I checked the ram... good. I checked the new drive... good.

Suggestions?

You need a CD/DVD USB drive.
Ask for one or use a HD 3,5" USB drive, open de HD USB disconect the HD and conect a CD drive, it will work like a CD USB drive.

The restore partition maybe corrupted. You will need a USB DVD/CD Drive and a Windows XP professional CD. The key should be on the back of the tablet. You will need to download the drivers from the fujitsu site and install them manually.

There are two slots, one for a pcmcia card and one for a CF memory card. Your video is on-board (built in), you my need to reinstall the operating system (with the 3 restore disks). if you do not have them I can supply them for $20.00.
Before you do this I would recommend that you use a USB floppy to see if it displays in DOS to make sure your video is not dead.

> check the disk

Check for scratches on the media.

Also, it could be "bad" RAM in the computer that is creating "random" problems, which could be reported by the B.S.O.D.
If the computer has multiple sticks of RAM, remove one, and try again.

My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
