you need the OEM disk from ibm to put vista back on.

best thing to do is keep 7 in the laptop, but you need internet access on the laptop get a usb wire/wireless card for the laptop and let windows update find the drivers and fix it.

If the previous owner ever formatted the disk, then they probably wiped out the hidden restore partion if one existed. This link will take to you to a restore disk ordering site. You can order the disks to restore to factory. $29.99

OR you can go to Dell and find/order restore disks there..

if you have the windows vista dvd then put it in, boot from it but when it comes to install step , check for the REPAIR SYSTEM option at the bottom,
select that option and choose -> startup repair.
follow onscreen steps and wait for system reboot.
if everything goes fine it will start but if this doesn't work then you'll be needed to reinstall the whole OS..

Intel Pentium 4 S 50 Desktop needs "data interface" for Air Card.


Since your IBM S50 was originally shipped with Windows XP, just contact IBM, via telephone, and order a replacement set of "System Recovery" CD-ROM disks. There will be a small charge, plus courier charges.

Install Windows XP from those disks, to get support for your hardware.

If you've lost the original disk, I would contact Sony, but since the OS is so old, you may want to speak with a professional to see if they have the disks you require (they should).

As for the disk drive, a USB disk drive may work, but it really depends on the hardware. Given the age, I doubt it will, unfortunately.

Best bet is to contact a professional.

Installation


You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install
