    What type of backup? There are many types and brands that people use.



    Is it not reading your CD Rom drive?



    What method did you use to reformat your hard drive?

    What is your error message (if any)?

    You may need to call Ad-Aware if you previously registered your product and get a new download. If the HD is reformatted, the previous install should be gone. Are you required to be connected to the Internet for installation?

How can I install my hard drive without the cd?


HI jamarrfinney

If you only want to install on your hard drive as backup, cd is not needed. just set the hard disk jumper to slave for IDE hard disk. If you are using SATA hard disk, no need to set jumpers, just insert the cable and then set the bios setup hard disk as a second hard drive (if necessary)

Tip

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

I want to downgrade ACER ASPIRE M5641 desktop form vista to XP. What steps to follow? Also I have only the backup CD which I made right after the purchase , originally installed with VISTA. Understand it...


You'll have to purchase the XP software, set your computer to boot from cd (in the cmos settings), put the disk in the cd and restart you computer. When the screen comes up to "...hit any key to boot from cd" hit any key. The system will boot to the XP cd and will allow you to delete the old partition, reformat your drive, and install XP. Next go to www.acer.com and download your drivers. Finally install your programs and data on to your hard drive. Have fun!

NOTE: Make absolutely sure that you backup the programs and data that you want to keep before starting the XP install!

Back up all of your personal data and files. Store your backup on external media, such as an external hard drive, USB flash drive or CD/DVD.
  • Step 2 Insert your Windows Vista installation disk.
  • Step 3 Restart the computer.
  • Step 4 Re-configure your BIOS to boot from CD first if Windows Vista boots normally after inserting the installation disk and restarting. Find these settings in your BIOS "Boot" options.
  • Step 5 Press any key to enter the Windows Vista setup.
  • Step 6 Enter the license key, select your activation preferences and agree to the license agreement. Press "Next" after entering a value for each item.
  • Step 7 Choose a "Custom" installation.
  • Step 8 Click on your primary partition. This should be your "C:\" drive on Disk 0. Click "Next."

    hp should have an option on your boot menu (viewed by pressing f8) to boot to system partition. Try that and see what kind of options are there.

    Compaq Deskpro EN contant restarting when attempting to load XP


    Last time this happened to me, I had to reformat and reinstall windows. I tried all those modes, and I even tried the windows repair. None of that worked, I just did a complete new install. All of the data will be lost, if you do this.

    My advice, if you need some of the data on that hard drive, you need to hook the drive up to another computer and backup what you need.

    Or buy another hard drive, install windows on the new drive. Now slave the old and backup the data.
