This is indeed "Do-able"  You need to boot on your XP DVD and  go through, & when it finds your "Old" Windows you can then select "Repair" install.  NOT "Repair via Recovery Console" this is the first option you get,  go past this point in the setup process. Hopefully this will refresh your setup.

Another way is to go into your I386 directory, either on Hard Drive or DVD, and find & "Run" WINNT32.exe this will then perform an "In Place Reinstall" Just follow the instructions.


here is a site that has it all in more detail.

It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.

Cant remove viruses form my laptop


Download, install and run Malware Bytes to do a little cleanup first (if the machine will let you).

You may need to disable your antivirus program to do your recovery also.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
