Yeah what you want to do is during the installation process it will ask you for a partition what you need to do is partition an amount of space away for the new operating system to run on when it asks if you would like to create a new partition

hope this helps

Windows xp startup problem


You may need to "wipe" or reformat your entire C drive to be able to install Windows program again. I would suggest installing WIN7 program as WIN XP is at its end of life cycle for that operating system and Microsoft may not support it any longer.

If possible try installing WIN7 once again, and if requested to reformat or do an entire install, choose YES.

WIN 7 should then reformat your C drive, erase everything that is on it and then install as WIN7 program.

Be sure you have your program license key to install WIN7.

I need to find a set up disc


What operating system set up disc are you referring to ?

Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:

"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download

http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.

Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.

g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window.

Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.

Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

My son accidently shut his laptop down whilst installing microsoft office and now he has an error on startup: status: oxcoooooe9. I tried rebooting and starting in safe mode but it always goes back to...


Instead of re-installing the Operating System you can do an Operating System repair. Boot to the Windows Operating System installer disc,. If you have XP, boot to the XP installer disc then enter the setup program. There will be an option that says "Press R to Repair Computer". Press letter R then let the setup finish. For Vista/7, boot to the installed disc then select "Startup Repair" This will repair all corrupted Windows file and will keep your data intact,

Hope this help.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Method 2: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

Cannot load drivers


there isnt such thing as impossibility to load and install drivers..if the system refuses the drivers you try ..this means that they are not the one you need to install ...Even if the drivers came on a disk with the laptop ...if you changed the operation system ..or the the bit of the system ..you need another set of drivers..
To be more clear for example if you installed windows 7 and use to have vista ..you need drivers for windows 7 ...even if some of them for common devices may fit from vista 32 to windows 7 32..Or ...if you downgraded from Vista to windows XP..you need drivers for xp ..and the other way around...The only way the drivers you have will fit after re-installation if you have the exact same operating system reinstalled..
So..this will be the site where you should download the drivers for you operating system..
http://www.acersupport.com/drivers_download.aspx
so ...choose the model ...notebook ...aspire/4520..after that choose from the 3 main windows ..xp .....vista ..or windows 7 ..and download all of them one by one ..and install ..

Have Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)on a new HP laptop computer. Am trying to install PrintMaster Gold 2.0. I get error messages when it is nearly installed. Broderbund told me it is compatible with...


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(make your program/application run with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
