Re: 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.

NTLDR means ............New Technology Loader ........... this is one of the most crucial part of the Windows OS, this specific component looks for the loader of NT(Windows OS) which loads the required OS files of WinXP(earlier it was called WinNT)...the naming legacy is still being followed though the OS has changed from Win95, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Win7....
The only way u can get back this is by re-formating the drive using the WinXP disk....more info ...click the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTLDR
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.
:) For what purpose you need a debugger when you can not fix your own mess :) ?!?
Which debugger have you installed? It must be a ring 0 i guess if auto loading drivers (SoftIce, Syser or RR0D .. WinDBG will not crash your OS )
Just go SafeMode and remove all autorun entries for the debugger ( drivers included ), use autoruns from M$ Technet ( SysInternals ), or just System Restore to previous point where you were not trying things that are out of your league ;)
A piece of advice : For debugging use dedicated machine or virtual one
hi! there,set up exe. that was when your setting up win 98 you have to install that came from floppy disk before you can install win 98.there is an os win 98 in your system you have to delete that previous os before installing another win xp.restart ur computer. press F2 to open your bios set-up . then select bios set-up priority your cd-room drive second,your hard drive. last, quit and save set-up. and then your computer will restart. insert your cd windows xp then reinstall your window xp. delete the previous os then follow the set up on your window xp until you install your new window xp.
you have to use xp os.because windows 98 is tatally back dated. thats why its not opening. or you can check it into another xp os. computer if it is open then your sure that windows 98 is not supporting, or if it is not open then your pendrive has some problem.
hi, when you install the new os there are usually two options
1) to install a new os formating the partition ( which distroys all data on the partition)
2) install the os on existing partition without formating the parttion, i think you are choosing this option in order to avoid the above written error in this option choose use the directory other then already present like if earlier directory was c:\windows put in c:\windows_new_date
so that it don't have to rewrite the files in the same directory and the files are loaded onto a new directory and when it will be installed it will give you the option to select the installtion you want to boot from.
Well it depends on how severe is your start up problem, if the OS still loads lets say on Windows XP more or less you just have to repair the boot.ini, if you have your Windows XP CD load it to your computer(make sure that on the BIOS setup the intial boot devce must be your CD ROM) When the initialization finished press R to open the command prompt the type the following;
The bootcfg utility will scan your hard drives for any Windows XP installations and then display the results. Follow the remaining steps to add your Windows XP installation to the boot.ini file.
The first prompt asks Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All).
Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
The final prompt asks you to Enter OS Load options:.
Type /Fastdetect here and press Enter.
Take out the Windows XP CD, type exit and then press Enter to restart your PC.
Assuming that a missing or corrupt boot.ini file was your only issue, Windows XP should now start normally.
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...
If you can try a different hard drive. And make sure the format of the hard drive that's installed doesn't freeze or doesn't complete. Those are just the first things that popped into my mind, I'm sure other's will have more suggestions. Good luck.
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.
