Download a program called dban. http://www.dban.org/download and mount it on a disc with another computer. Place the disk in your computer and reboot. While loading look for the boot menu option and push the button. If you missed it reboot again. When the boot menu comes up select cd-rom drive or dvd-rom drive. The program should start up. Follow the directions on the screen by typing in autonuke. The program might run for a long time(probably overnight). After it is complete. Reboot you computer, take out the disc and reboot with your original XP Pro disc. Hope this helps.

A scratched cd/dvd can have errors causing the install to fail. Use a clean cd/dvd install disc to fix it.

If you are trying to install directly from the hard drive then a malware infection could have corrupted or damaged that part of your hard drive. Install windows from the cd/dvd disc for your computer.

How to install windows xp in msi k8mm-v motherboard?


Hi dharmen_shah,
I see that you need to install Windows XP on you Dekstop with an MSI Motherboard k8mm-V.
I have another desktop using the same Motherboard, there are 3 options installing Windows XP on the machine.
  1. Using an IDE Optical Drive
  2. Using a SATA Optical Drive "not a common installation process on this motherboard" since you will need to install the SATA rivers first to be able to use your SATA ODD
  3. Using a USB Flash Drive
See steps below for each installation type.
*Using an IDE Optical Drive*
  • If you have your Windows XP CD insert it on the Disc Drive restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • Once in the Boot Menu screen select your Optical Drive, it may say dvd/cd or ODD, select this and press enter. Note: windows may restart during the installation if it says press any key to boot to cd do not press anything anymore leave it will do everything on it's own unless prompted for any user information like a computer name date and time.
  • You will see on the screen Boot to cd: then it will show "press any key to boot to cd" press Enter or any key this will boot from your cd Windows XP.
  • Then you will see inspecting your hardware for configuration, once it boots to your Windows XP cd you will see a blue screen Loading up drivers and stuff for the installation of Windows XP.
  • Next will be the installation of Windows XP itself, just follow the prompt it is very easy to follow and it will give you all the details and what buttons to click on.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.

*Using SATA Optical Disc Drive*
  • You will need a 1.4 floppy disc to be able to do this.
  • If you have a 1.4 Floppy Drive you will also need to download the SATA driver from the MSI website.
  • Let us disregard this option since I believe you do no have a 1.4 Floppy Disc Drive and no one uses that or has a 1.4 Floppy Drive anymore on their machines.
*Using a USB Flash Drive*
  • To be able to use a USB Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP your USB Flash Drive should at least be 1GB or 2GB, 1GB will be enough since windows XP only uses at least 7++gb of disc space for the installer size.
  • Using you USB Flash Drive you will need to copy the whole contents of your Windows XP Cd into your USB Flash Drive, don't worry this will be bootable just make sure that you copy everything from the disc into the USB Flash Drive.
  • Once you have copied Windows XP on your USB Flash Drive insert it to one of your USB ports on the machine then restart the computer.
  • Restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • This will be the same as using your Windows XP cd but instead you will need to select USB in the Boot Menu then press enter. on the installation steps it will be the same as installing using a disc.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.
  • Windows may restart during the installation and using a USB Flash Drive will be different at this point because it will boot directly to the USB, Once it restarts and may repeat the installation all over, to prevent this as soon as the system begins to restart from the installation go and keep on tapping "Delete" once it restarts this will bring you to the BIOS screen press F9 to set it to defaults then press F10 to save and exit this will restart again.
  • Once it restarts after setting the BIOS to defaults let the system boot on its own it will then show you a screen asking what windows to install the first thing highlighted will be the installation that was halted earlier just press enter then it will show you the windows installation page and will continue on it's own.
This is based on my own experience since I have an older Desktop that has the same Motherboard, I hope that I have given you all the options possible to installing your windows XP on your Motherboard k8mm-v.
Have a nice day,

I installed quicken 2011, but am unable to turn the quicken sound on, Iused quicken help, which told me to go to file menue>preference, I did that but when I opened file i did not have the...


Hi,

You can follow the following steps to have the sound enabled in Quicken 2011.

  1. Ensure your Quicken program has been updated to the latest release.
  2. From the Quicken Edit menu, choose Preferences, and then choose Quicken Program.
  3. Select Setup, and then select the Turn on Quicken sounds checkbox, and then click OK.
  4. If the issue persists, make sure that your speakers have not been muted and that the sound volume is correct (refer to your operating system's Help for instructions).
    Note:
    Quicken sounds will only be available if logged in using the same user profile that was used to install Quicken.
  5. If Quicken is unable to produce sounds despite following the above instructions, Reinstall quicken in selective startup.

Note: This process requires you to restart your computer.
Restart your computer in Selective Startup Mode, and then install Quicken.
To restart the computer in Selective Startup mode:
  1. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
  2. In the Open field, enter MSCONFIG, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, select Selective Startup, and then select Load System Services (ensuring all others are unchecked).
  4. On the Services tab, in the area below the scrolling list, be sure that Hide all Microsoft Services is not selected.
  5. Click Disable all to clear all selected services.
  6. Select Windows installer, and then click OK.
  7. When prompted, click Restart.
  8. When your computer restarts, run the Quicken installation from the CD-ROM.
    When you place the Quicken installation CD-ROM in your CD-ROM drive, the Quicken installation should start automatically. If it does not, you can start it manually:
    1. Close all open applications.
    2. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
    3. In the Open field, enter D:\INSTALL.EXE, where D is the name of your CD-ROM drive.
    4. Click OK, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
After the installation process completes, return your system to its previous configuration:
  1. Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Run.
  2. In the Open field, enter MSCONFIG, and then click OK.
  3. On the General tab, select Normal Startup.
  4. Click OK, and then click Restart.
the installation is not successful, try installing from your hard disk. For instructions see below.

Copying Quicken to your hard drive and installing it from there resolves many of the issues that can occur during installation.
  1. Right-click on your desktop and select New > Folder. This creates a folder named New Folder on the desktop.
  2. Place the Quicken CD-ROM in your computer's CD-ROM drive. If you are prompted to install Quicken, click No or Cancel.
  3. Click the Microsoft® Windows® Start button and select My Computer.
  4. Right click the CD-ROM drive with the Quicken CD and select Copy.
  5. Open the New Folder created in step 1.
  6. Select the Edit menu and select Paste. This copies the contents of the Quicken program from the CD-ROM to the hard disk. When the copy is complete, the DISK1 and Custom folders appear in the New Folder window.
  7. Double-click the DISK1 folder to display the contents, and then double-click Setup.exe.
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Wont let me boot windows xp off flash drive


Hi manbrand62,
I see that you are trying to boot to your Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP, try steps below.
  • As soon as you start your computer keep on tapping F12 or F11 to boot to the Boot Menu, I'm just not sure if it's F12 or F11 on a dell but one of the 2 options will bring you to the Boot Menu page that is where you can select your USB flash drive to install windows from the USB.
  • Note: Installing from a Flash Drive will be different from using a CD, windows may restart during the installation and since you are going to be using a Flash Drive you will need to get to the BIOS screen once the system restarts then set it to default then save and exit saving settings.
  • This will restart the system and continue the installation process for Windows XP.
I hope that this will help you installing Windows XP using you Flash Drive on you machine.
Have a nice day,

I am trying to install my old software on my new computer. After hitting the "Install personal patterns for children - special edition" I get an error message stating: could not execute external program...


Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD-drive.
Look for that 'ppchild' file.
Or, look for an 'setup' file or an 'install' file.
Double-click one of those files, to restart the installer.

If it still fails, then your new computer (running Windows 7) probably has recognized that the program is _NOT_ compatible with Windows 7. So, start the Windows "Program Compatibility Wizard", and tell it that you want to install a Windows XP program on your new computer.
