Hi,
FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.

regards mike @ compurepair.

The disc tray wont close


Try removing the CD-ROM drive from Device Manager and restarting the computer so that it will find the driver again and re-install it automatically.

Otherwise I'd explore getting a new drive. They are very cheap these days.

Not reading scsi drives: 1 hard drive, 2 cd roms


you haven't mentioned what motherboard model you have and since it's hard for you to identify the scsi adapter, you're pretty much asking us to tell you about the birds and the bees or starting from ground zero...

this is a lot of information that you need at once.
if you aren't savvy with computer electronics, I suggest taking the pc to a pc technician and paying him a few bucks to interview him/her and give you a lot of information. you should physically be on site with someone that can optically show you how to deal with pc hardware before you begin tinkering with it on your own.

HELP ME


hi there my friend,

we have the hard way and then we have the easy way...

the hard way is to bootup with your bootable xp cd .follow the installation guide ..then.put in your key when you get the chance to ..and finish the installation. then apply service pack 2 to your installation .. and you're done...

the easy way would be to make a Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD....which you can use each time you need to fix your system.

1 - Download the (full) "Network Install" of the Service Pack (English version [266 MB]), and save it to a directory (folder) on your hard drive (in my case D:\XP-SP2). Other languages can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Web site.

Note: do not use spaces in the folder name!

2 - copy your Windows XP CD to your hard drive. Just create a folder (I used \XP-CD), and copy all the contents of your Windows XP CD in that folder.

3 - , open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd), and go to the folder where you downloaded SP2 (cd \foldername). Type the command: servicepack filename /integrate:drive/path. In my example the command is WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU /integrate:D:\XP-CD.

Extract SP2 files

If you get the error:

This service pack can't be integrated error

This is caused by the fact that your Windows XP CD contains updates that will be automatically installed when you run setup. This type of CD's will usually be from larger OEM suppliers (like Dell, HP, or others).

You cannot use this type of CD to create a slipstreamed SP2 install.

First, the files will be extracted, and next they will be integrated in your Windows XP files:

Updating Windows Share

When ready, you should get a confirmation. Windows XP Service Pack 2 has now been Slipstreamed into your original Windows XP files.

Slipstream Completed


Creating a Bootable CD

For this part I used IsoBuster and Nero Burning ROM 6

After you install IsoBuster, you can choose to use only the product's free functionality for what we want to do, IsoBuster will look like the image below (you need to have your original Windows XP CD in the CD-ROM drive).

Start to extract the boot loader from the original Windows XP CD. Using IsoBuster, select the "folder" Bootable CD, and right-click Microsoft Corporation.img. From the menu choose Extract Microsoft Corporation.img, and extract it to the folder on your hard drive where you have your Windows XP files (D:\XP-CD in my case).

Extract Boot Image

Next, start Nero Burning ROM, and choose CD-ROM (Boot) in the New Compilation window. On the Boot tab, select Image file under Source of boot image data, and browse to the location of the Microsoft Corporation.img file. Also enable Expert Settings, choosing No Emulation, and changing the Number of loaded sectors to 4 (otherwise it won't boot!)

Nero Boot Settings

The ISO tab should be configured correctly as shown below:

Nero ISO Settings

If you have an older version of Nero you won't have the option Do Not Add ";1" ISO file version extention under Relax ISO Restrictions. You won't be able to boot your new CD, so update Nero!
You can configure the Label tab to your liking, I would however recommend that you keep the Volume Label the same as on your original Windows XP CD. Here are some (English) Labels:

* Windows XP Professional: WXPCCP_EN
* Windows XP Home: WXHCCP_EN
* Windows XP Professional OEM: WXPOEM_EN
* Windows XP Home OEM: WXHOEM_EN

Nero Label Settings

Next press New, and from the File Browser window, select the files and folders from your slipstreamed location (in my case D:\XP-CD). Now drag & drop the selected files in the ISO1 window.

Copy Files

Next, burn your new CD.

Burn

You now have a Bootable, Slipstreamed Windows XP Service Pack 2 CD!

Major PC Crash!!!!!


what operating system are you using? If its windows xp and you are using your factory restore discs, you might want to try using a normal windows xp disc and doing a fresh install. Another option is that your hard drive is bad or is going bad. I would download the ultimate boot cd and run seatools off the ubcd. Check your hard drive to see if its still ok.
