Usually if it stops at "verifying dpmi pool data" the OS has gotten corrupted sometimes if it is left at this screen for 30 mins it might clear and boot

    John, It is looking for the hard drive. It apparently cant find it.

    Make sure that the ribbon cable is good and is on tight.





    If you are using a sata drive. When you install XP you will need the SATA drivers on a floppy.
    There comes a point in the installation where it will ask if you are installing
    onto a drive other than IDE at which point it asks you to push F6 and to insert
    the drivers ...it will only look for them on a floppy.

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

Insalling windows xp


As the pc is booting press F2 or Del (dependant on bios) and enter bios set up.
Choose to make your cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit bios.

Insert cd drive before the boot up starts and there will bea screen prompt to "press enter to boot from cd", press enter and then the cdrom will go to the next step, asking press 'R' to repair or press 'Enter' to format and install windows, choose repair if you have documents you need on your pc.

The system will then go through a full repair installation, when complete your system will be repaired and everything should be as before with nothing lost.

You may have a faulty hard drive so if you cannot get windows to repair it will tell you theres no drive found.

How to install windows xp boot cd on acer aspire 4315


When you first start the machine, you need to go into the boot menu and boot from CD drive, or go into bios/utilities set up and set the boot order to boot from CD first. Make sure your XP CD is in the drive, then just follow the prompts.

Media test failure


Do you have the PXE error?
The media failure is in the boot sequence, on the toshiba press F12 on boot to change boot priority, select cd/dvd or hard drive, or to preclude from happening, press F2 on boot enter BIOS, select Boot options make sure to set priority as cd/dvd, then hard drive, then network or disable network boot. network booting causes media failure.

Boot sequence problem


try booting to DOS screen only by inserting a boot-able floppy disc (I use Win ME disc at this point although my system is also Win XP). Then select "boot with CD-ROM driver". It will detect your CDROM drive and assign a letter. Now insert the CD and boot from there. I have done this sequence many times with no problems.
