The only thing that comes to mind is you have some antiviirus/firewall software that will not allow it to load.
Depending on what type is is it can be blocking it without telling you or allowing you to pass the program.
This is a common issue with this type of software.
you can disable it but how depends on what it is.
if you can disable it then run the update manually.
start/windows update

I need to re-install Windows XP Home Edition


Contact Averatec and order recovery media, if they are still available.
If you cannot get a Windows XP OS to install, you can always try Linux. The Ubuntu distribution, and most other ones are free.

Microsoft makes it available as a download so that people can fix computers that don't have a working CD/DVD drive. You'll still need your registration key, of course, from your original install. Look for a sticker on your computer with the 25-character code. Here is the link for you. Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2 Utility Setup Disks for...

I need to do a windows repair but I cannot find my cd. Can I download one and save it to a disk and install it on a different computer


Ask your friends to borrow either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM (bought when XP was available in retail stores) or an "OEM" (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. The OEM version was used by Microsoft-licensed "system-builders" (small computer-stores that assemble computers from the individual components, and then install this "generic" version of Windows).

If you have the "genuine Windows" decal on the side of your desktop, use that 25-character product-key and the "borrowed" CD-ROM to reinstall Windows.

I can't find back/up wizard in system/tools on Dell-C521


You probably have XP home edition

Although Windows XP Professional Edition and XP Home both ship with NTBackup, only XP Pro installs NTBackup by default. You can install NTBackup for XP Home by performing the following steps:
  1. Insert the XP Home CD-ROM.
  2. Navigate to the VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP folder.
  3. Double-click the ntbackup.msi file to install NTBackup.

Dell Latitude D505 XP Driver Recovery CD - Restore Disk


Dell doesn't realy have a "recovery" CD. What they shipped is a re-installation CD of the original OS (OEM edition). If you don't have this, you can probably download it from a torrent site and install the OS again using the installation code from the license sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

Cannot complete installation of windows xp home edition


Have you added or changed your computer's hardware since you purchased your computer? Your Dell reinstallation disk will probably only work for the original configuration of your machine. If this is the case, dust off your old parts, remove your newer parts, then reinstall your old ones to get your system back to its original configuration. Once there, try the reinstallation again.
If this does not apply to you (or you can't get it to work), you can always purchase the operating system new (from newegg, tigerdirect or similar) and install from a disk that will have all of the drivers you need. OEM versions are cheapest, but you are on your own for support in the event of a problem. I hope this helps.

Hi,

First you need to determine what operating system was installed and what version. Let's say Windows XP Home Edition, you need to borrow that CD installer or even an OEM version. Soon as it is available, change your BIOS/CMOS setting to configure the laptop to boot off from the CD Drive. Pop in the borrowed CD installer and boot the laptop. The OS will install. If it were an original CD appropriate to your OS then all the drivers will be installed. If the CD is an OEM version, then you need to download from the Dell website the necessary drivers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
