I've just done a systems factory restore but ercovery stalls at process stage 11/12. I killed it by doing ctrl/alt/delete and ending the task in task manager. My computer works fine but it does this...

Please follow this step:
Format your system and reinstall the original operating system software that came with it. While you can install the latest version of OS X that you purchased from the App Store, technically this is a copy licensed to you, not the new owners. Reinstalling the original version of OS X will allow the new owners to choose what version they would like to install.

To reinstall the original version of OS X if your Mac came with a gray installation and restoration DVD, insert this into the optical drive and reboot with the C key held down. Then after selecting your language choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. In Disk Utility, select your internal hard drive (listed above any volume names contained on it), and you should see a "Partition" tab appear. In this tab, choose "1 Partition" from the drop-down menu, and then give the partition a name, set it to be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)," and apply the changes.

If your system did not come with a gray restoration DVD, then you will need to use Internet Recovery to restore the original version of OS X. This will access Apple's servers and download the installation tools for the correct version that came with your system. To do this, ensure you have an appropriate internet connection for use with Internet Recovery, and then reboot with the Option-Command-R keys held to force loading to Internet Recovery. Again, use Disk Utility to fully partition the internal boot drive, and then quit Disk Utility.

Once the hard drive has been formatted, you can proceed with running the OS X installer, and wait for the content to download and be set up on the system.

After the installer completes, the system will restart and show the welcome screen of the OS X setup assistant, at which point you can hold the power button to shut off the system (when it is next turned on it will start at the assistant). It is now ready for the new owners to turn on and set up, as if the Mac arrived straight from the factory.

You need to make the proper format, in order not to see this message.
Tell us please which OS you intend to install, what tool you used to format?

If your hard drive is 250 GB or less, you can format it using OnTrack Disk Manager,
For any hard disk capacity, you can use Windows CD to format.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

Maximum no of operating system that can be installed in one system at a time

As many as the number of paryitions on your hard disk. Use of multi-boot setups, which allow users to have more than one operating system on a single computer. For example, one could install Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows or others on different partitions of the same hard disk and have a choice of booting into any compatible operating system at power-up

Hi there! Yesterday I was installing Windows XP

Sorry to hear your having issues installing the OS.

There is two problems your facing one is the disk is so scratched that the system can not read the disk or the hard drive has bad sectors or clusters which are failing when being written to.

You have two options to fix this one is to make sure the cd is clean an or replace your hard drive.

General disk read error message tend to be from hard drive cylinder's.

My mac will not let me log on!

Step 1: Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD. macosx-dvd.pngThis hardest part of this technique may be laying your hands on a Mac OS X Install CD when you need one. Use a version that is close the the version of Mac OS X you have installed.
Hold the C key as the computer starts to boot from the CD.
When the installer starts, choose your language, and you'll proceed to the welcome dialog.
Step 2: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu. resetpw-utilitymenu.jpg Tip: In previous versions of Mac OS X (10.2 and 10.3), you can find the Resent Password option under the Installer menu instead.
Step 3: Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume. resetpw-reset.jpg Select the user name of your original administrator account.
Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
Enter your new password. Click Save.

Hard drive not installed if os not found re-install hit any key to exit

This usually happens when your BIOS fails to recognise your hard disk or else it is not enabled in BIOS or else there is a loose connection which makes your computer unable to detect the hard disk, You could try and use your BIOS to check if your hard disk is detected. In case it is not, then check the connections of your hard disk or ask your technician to do that

Install xp in compaq presario c700

The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

A new XP install,
If you have the original xp disk,
Insert the disk to the computer your setting up,
Turn on the power and let the system recognise the disk is in the tray.
It will prompt you and ask if you want to install the XP OS
Accept this and follow the prompts,
Windows will install itself over the old OS,
When completed it will then ask if you want to register the windows now or choose and move on.
Activate windows now and the system will be funtional and ready to use....
Only other important thing to remember is to set up Computer Protection of some sort and have fun....

Hope this helps.Please let us know the outcome ,Thanks
