    Very simple I do this all the time but first I need to know something. has your harddrive been formated to NTSC or FAT32 like is required for the OS? Do you have a pre-existing OS on it? what OS are you trying to install? If you could just answer those for me I'll gladly help you get this done right away!

I need to know how to disable a write protect on hard drive please


It is better to leave this X drive alone/as it is than change it. You should install your applications/programs on the C drive. If you need to reformat your hard drive, then you can use the installation media/disc to delete the partition at the beginning of the operating system installation process.

System32 is not installed


This happens when you don't have a system 32 [ Windows operating system ] installed.
This happens if you have a system 64 Windows operating system but usually happens when your Windows operating system isn't working properly.

Sounds like you need to either
1 - Run windows repair
2- Run windows fresh install,

You will need an INSTALL DISK with the operating system on it.
If you have the operating disk insert it into the CD ROM or DVD [ same slot ] - please and follow the prompts.
Be sure you have your activation code.
If I go into detail this will take some time so I will see how much you know. If this answers your question then fine - if not come back and add to this solution with your comment.
Let me know if you can get your pc going again with the information I have given you.
Best of it

I need to know how to format the harddrive on my Inspiron 1525 laptop.


The fastest way to do it is by inserting the operating system install disk and select clean install and format the hard drive from there you don't have to install the operating system its a utility built in but if you format your hard drive it will erase windows or what operating system you use.

I have a gateway 500xl that the previous owner reformatted the harddrive wiping the xp operating system. I've upgraded the ram but without an op system I cannot turn the machine on. I need to install...


Hi there.

For this process you will need:
1) The hard drive you want the operating system on.
2) The operating system disk (Windows, Linux, etc, depending on your os choice)
3) A CD/DVD drive.

Firstly you will need to enter the BIOS on startup by pressing the Delete key repeatedly as your system starts up. In the BIOS you need to locate the boot disk priority section. You need to set priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the hard drive you wish to install the operating system to. Once this is done save changes to the BIOS and exit. Your system should now restart and on boot-up it should display a message "Insert bootable disk" or something like that. This is where you put in the operating systems install disk into your CD/DVD drive. Once it is in restart your system. Now your PC should boot up and ask you to press "Enter" to boot form the CD/DVD. Press enter to proceed. The setup should now begin, just follow the steps given by the setup wizard. Once the setup is finished and your PC reboots and on startup you get the same message about pressing "Enter" to begin setup just do nothing. Your PC should then switch automatically to your newly installed operating system and boot into it. Once your PC is fully booted into your operating system of choice remove the setup disk.

I need to know how to instal the operating system on my Compaq presario 5000. It says no operating system found, & i don't remember how to instal one. can someone please help me out?


what operating system are you trying to install.
If windows. You need the disk. Then when you switch on the computer you hold f12 or f8.(should display on the bottom of sreen)this will take you into the bios. you need to change boot order to boot from disk. Then you have to format hard drive etc. this can be quite tricky to explain. From this point i think your best option at the minute is to type what operating system you are installing into youtube. theres tons of people showing you how to install operating systems

Your 80GB hard drive does not have an Operating System installed.

You'll either need to buy an Operating System Installer disk from a website such as this one (Operating System are located in the category Software>Operating Systems), or ask someone who has an Operating System Installer disk to install your Operating System of choice.

Just know that the hardware within your computer MUST be compatible with your Operating System of choice and that you MUST have the system resources to support your OS choice.
