How to Reload Windows XP Without Removing Files
Deleting system files, modifying the registry and installing incompatible drivers to Windows XP can damage the integrity of the operating system, rendering it inoperable. Virus infections are often responsible for making the aforementioned changes to a system, but employees who have administrative access to the workstation can make deleterious modifications to the OS as well. Reinstalling Windows XP can repair the OS, but if work-related files are stored to the system partition, all of the data will be erased during the installation process. To reload Windows XP without losing files, you can perform an in-place upgrade, also known as a repair installation.
Step 1Insert the Windows XP CD into the optical drive and then press "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to restart the computer. Step 2Press any key when prompted to load the contents of the disc. Press "Enter" on the Welcome to Setup screen. Step 3Read the license agreement, pressing "PgDn" to scroll down the page. Press "F8" to agree to the terms. The CD will search for previous installations of Windows XP. Step 4 Press "R" to repair the selected operating system. The disc will begin reinstalling the operating system to the hard drive without affecting personal files. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the repair installation. Step 5 Log in to Windows XP and sign on to the Internet when installation completes. Click "Start," "All Programs" and then "Windows Update." Step 6 Click "Scan for Updates" to search for applicable service packs and hotfixes to reinstall to the OS. Step 7 Click "Install Now" to bring the in-place upgrade up-to-date.
Windows XP CD
Make sure you have your Windows XP product key (found on the CD cover or on the computer case) available prior to reinstallation.
If possible, back up your files previous to the installation in case something goes awry during the process.
You will need to reinstall all non-native programs and removable devices after performing an in-place upgrade.
If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Use a USB driver or download the windows OS on your hard drive and install from there. both should work as long as you setup will boot to USB devices.
one more option connect to a network that has Windows OS installable on the server or other computer then install to your tablet.
If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to
windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to
solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd
or dvd to install
windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows
already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen,
press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either
enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power
up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in
order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.
if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.
2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they
are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other
brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the
right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.
you have to go to gateway and download the driver for the SATAcontroller then save it to floppy or cd then hit F6 durning install then it will ask you for the driver. This Tablet will not see a non-gateway cd if you have the one that came with the tablet then you are good, but if not you will need to do this for the current drive or if yo upgrade to newer drive. Hope this get you started, I had this same problem and I thought it was my motherboard was bad because it would not see the hard drive during installation. This fixed my issue with the drive not being seen during installation of the OS.
