Could you give me instruction on how to install win 7 in laptop,


  • Obtain a windows 7 dvd and serial, this is easiest if you actually buy it.
  • Backup any and all information you want to keep on the laptop
  • Put the DVD into the laptop and restart your computer.
  • If prompted select boot from CD.
  • If your previous operating system loads, restart the computer, go into the bios settings and change the boot order to CD then HDD
  • Restart again, this time it should boot from CD.
  • Reformat the entirety of the HDD space into NTFS and select the reformatted space as the place to install windows 7, if offered, choose 64bit (x64).
  • Let it do its job, this may take quite some time.
  • Voila you have a new OS

I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?


You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

Hope this will help...cheers:)

Windows xp will not boot


If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System


Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..

Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.

Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Hope to solve your problem.
