I have ask you already how to install the dual boot os(Windows xp and Windows 7 ), but i don't complete yet .Can you explain to me again step_by_step in great detail ? because when i install windows xp...


Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

Hi my everex computer is getting a screen saying windows could not start following file js missing or corrupt:..windiwssystem32configsystem............How do i repair without loosing my downloaded pictures...


Hi, Assuming the OS as XP. Plz follow the below steps.

Yes, you can repair your system,

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

My PC is asking for a windows installation CD to repair my computer


It wants the original setup disc if you have it - usually Dell has a system disc or restore disc that comes with the PC - if not a different windows disc will probably work, but you may have to tell it to look in the I386 folder to find the files it wants manually using the browse window that pops up when it asks for a file.

Installing windows xp


You cannot install Windows XP over WIndows Vista. Microsoft has put a lock on the Vista software and will not allow you to downgrade to a lower software. The only way you can do it is to wipe your hard drive completely clean first with a disk deleting software or with the command "fdisk" at the DOS prompt. However, this is dangerous and I do not recommend it unless you have someone professionally trained to do it. It will wipe everything off of your disk and then you can load Windows XP.

Hi,

From my point of view I think the Operating system needs to be Repaired and below is a guide on how to repair
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you DO NOT want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read WARNINNG #2
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. After the installation is over the system will reboot.

Enjoy

Fail to load files during text mode setup


Maybe its a software problem, have you tried putting in a bootable XP installation CD? After the bios boot and it asks you to boot to CD, press R for repair, it will try to repair your OS, and if it is an OS problem ,then it will boot once again... If not you can try formatting your HDD and reinstalling windows...

OS load failure.


The bluescreen saying about the ACPI, I had the same problem at work with a older computer. Next time you get the bluescreen read everything it says.

It tells you to press a button, I'm not sure thats why I'm telling you to read the bluescreen (windows 2000 or xp) it was f5 or f8.

You press f5 or f8 I think it was f5 since f6 is to load custom drivers.

So you press f5 when it asks you to press f6 This disables the ACPI subsystem in the setup and you should be able to install windows 2000 without any more problems. If its not f5 read the bluescreen thats where I got it!

Good luck, keep me posted and tell me if theres anything else.

INSTALLATION FAILURE


oh no!! there's a possibility that it has a virus contiained on your hard drive. If you have rescue disk( comes with a floppy drive), insert it before booting up your computer. Run setup of your rescue disk then follow instructions of the certain program on how to virus scan your PC on DOS setup.
