Question about Computers & Internet
I REPLACED THIS MOBO WITH THE SAME KIND. I ATTEMPTED TO INSTALL WIN XP (OEM) ON A FORMATTED HD.IF THE SETUP SCREEN COMES UP IT WILL HANG WHEN IT BEGIN TO LOAD THE FILES OR IT WILL REBOOT WHILE CHECKING THE STSTEMS HARDWARE CONFIGURATION I CANT EGT IT TO BOOT FROM A STARTUP DISK ALTHOUGH I FIX THE BOOT ORDER TO START FROM THE FLOPPY
I HAVE RELOADED THE DEFAULT SETTINGS AND HAVE ALSO TAKEN THE CMOS BATTERY OUT OVERNITE RARELY I MAY BE ABLE TO LOAD XP AND USE IT BUT WHEN I TURN THE MACHINE OFF FOR ANY EXTENDED AMOUNT OF TIME WHEN I RESTART IT ONE OR ANOTHER OF THE FILES WILL BE MISSING OR CORRUPT IVE USED THIS OS DISK ON ALL MY PC'S AND HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM
I TRIED CHANGING THE JUMPER SETTINGS ON THE HD TO NA AVAIL AND WHEN I TRIED ANOTHER HD WITH XP ON IT I GET THE MESSAGE OS NOT FOUND ANY SUGGESTIONS
DID you replace the hard drive as well???
or is it the original HD.
IN intersests of protecting thier own assets(anti piracy)---Microsoft stamps an encoded "Product ID"
on the hard drive to which THEIR software(all you get is a "Right to USE) is installed..
Even if you have the original setup disks-- it most likely does NOT stamp this code(P ID) on ANY hardrive. WHY??
IT was all too easy (for example) for someone to use their 95/98/me setup disk and install it on any number of PCs-- regardless of brands. Hence the need to implement anti piracy protection.
However there ARE hard drive imaging programs that will COPY bit 4 bit your original hard drive data to a new hard drive --- including the encoded P ID. (some are legal--you may have VALID reasons for replacing your hard drive..Some are NOT.. --some people insist on piracy. and thus driving up the cost of ALREADY over priced inefficient software...
My sugestion--- try linux. Iv e been usuing it for 8 years and will NEVER return to MS
linux is faster safer AND yes smarter then anything ever engineered by microsoft...
Linux comes in many "brand names"often called "distribution or distros" It is NOT owned by any single company-- the inventor licensed it under the General public licenses. or GPL.
YOU and I have the rights and privelige to USE COPY Modify(make it BETTER) and even redistubite it.. Provided that we follow the same/similiar GPL.
Be forwarned ..because it is its own operating system You may not be able to use your favorite Microsoft programs and any LOVER of microsoft will strongly discourage you..
FYI using crossplatform software included I have installed my own legal copy of MS office 97--the last ms product i ever bought. I have also had luck installing some games and other software like quicken. But I only did this for the purpose of testing claims made by linux users. Personally I would much rather use any of the hundereds of office suites, financial programs, educational programs etc provided by linux. A thourough ditribution may span as many as 5 dvds (20gb) But most people are comfortable with a single or double cd installation.
