Cannot load fresh windows xp professional

I am tryin to install fresh OS on my A15, but cannot get through it. It does the install upto the point where it says copying files and then starts giving me errors that cannot cave **.dll and other files one after the other and just gets stuck at this for hours.

I tried formatting the drive and deleting the partitions, but, still no progress.
I got an error once that it cannot partition the drive, so I am thinking that it is the HDD itself. I have ordered another hard drive and will try again. Meantime any suggestions will help....

    Thank you geikogirl for your response. I don't understand what you mean by uncertified OS. The OS I am trying to install is XP pro with license key and the disk is in good condition. I just installed it on a desktop and it worked fine. That's why I was thinking that may be the HDD has something physically wrong with it. I am buying another HDD and will try to put that it and see if I have any luck..



    Again, thank you for your post and help..

    By Certified, do you mean is it Legit?? Yes it is a XP Professional that I have used on my other desktop also and it installed without any problems and also went thru the validation from Microsoft.

    shall we assume your os is certified?

Yes, a non-copied version, or the original disc, a "certified" os.

It's possible that your HDD is failing, but 9 out of 10, it's the software. Did you check to see if everything was seated properly. Your HDD was full plugged/inserted in? This can cause issues as well.

I will agree, that uncertified OS often come back with refusals to install certain files as those files weren't copied correctly.

It's also possible that your OS disc is old and very scratched, which could cause information transfer issues. I suggest either using, or getting a DiscDr. if at all possible. They really do work, and it might save you from having to purchase another OS.

Windows can't find any hard drives...when installing xp


It sounds possible that your Windows XP install CD does not contain the necessary hard disk device drivers for the drive used in your Dell Vostro laptop and you would need to load these drivers separately during the XP install when the option is given to use third-party device drivers.

Some laptops may provide options in their BIOS settings to use a compatibility mode of operation for newer SATA hard drives that will make them visible to bootable utilities such as disk imaging software and older OS install CD's.

Windows does not start....black screen appears


Hello :

I had this problem before . What I did to solve it ? . I took the OS CD [ windows xp or windows vista or 7 etc ] and inserted it in the CD driver .

I rebooted the system .

While the system is rebooting , I started booting from the CD .

When the computer asked me , if I want to install fresh copy of OS I agreed with it .

After that the computer will load some files from the CD .

Then It will stop to ask me again if I want to install fresh copy of OS or I want to repair the OS , I chose repairing OS ..

That's it . Just repair the OS and problem will be solved .

Please don't forget to rate !

good luck .

You need to get into 'setup' (watch the screen as it starts) and delete the hard drive, then reinstall it. Be sure to save and exit. When windows starts to install, it will see an un-formatted drive and offer to format it. Select 'NT' file type and let it proceed. Windows will install as on a fresh drive.
