I would lick ti instal xp on my set toshiba tecra a2-s316 but i dont know how to boot my system by bootable cd


When booting you laptop notice the Toshiba scree. As that screen displays with the option F2 or F10. With your XP cd in the DVD/CD drive choose F10 and set your boot device to DVD/CD.
And follow the onscreen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Unable to install XP OS to MSI lap top


insert a bootable xp cd into the cd drive and hit enter continuosly...it ll ask to hit any key to continue from cd...hit any screen and follow the onscreen instructions...

if it doesnt works, try this....
u can log in to the setup by pressing del key or F2(depends upon make and model) and change the drive booting order...change the first booting device as CD/DVD and second booting device to HDD...
now it ll prompt you to hit any key to start from CD/DVD....
Make sure you have inserted a bootable XP CD in CD drive....Bootable XP CD's can be created only from another bootable XP cd by taking an image from that cd and writing it back to the cd...you can use NERO Copy disc option for this purpose...it ll create an iso image and you can use only this to write into the disc...

I need to reboot my lap top and install windows XP how do i do that?


Just Put the XP CD, and restart your Notebook, the booting will start automatically, and will install the Windows.


If the Booting doesn't start, then you need to go to the Setup(BIOS) and set the CD-ROM to be the First Booting device, (This option is in the BIOS settings somewhere, it varies from vendor to vendor, but is somewhere under Boot-Menu or Booting Order).

I hope you understand.

My dell xps m1330 will not boot up.it comes up on screen saying ''no boot sector on internal hard drive'' ''no bootable devices''it has had a new motherboard fitted by Dell.i'm trying to install xp pro


When it's booting, try to access the setup, aka BIOS. See if you can set CD/DVD as a booting option. As the top BOOT device. Then see if you can boot your installation CD. You may be able to format your drive during the installation - if the hard drive hasn't failed?

Full charge the battery first so that it can contain enough power to boot your laptop. Because it is a new battery it should fully charged for the first use.

Toshiba tecra m2v s330


Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.
