If you don't see the "press any key to boot from cd" text message, it means you should enter bios menu and set your CD/DVD as your first boot drive (F2 to enter bios and F8 to enter directly into boot menu to select first boot device)

Boot sequence for emachine M6811


As SOON as you press the Power On button, start tapping on the DELete key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

You may hear beeps. This is a Stuck Key Error Beep. (Or beeps)
Ignore the beeps.

You will now be in the BIOS Setup utility.

The BIOS program is made by Phoenix.
It is Version NSF03.P0
Release date - 07/28/2004

http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=2170#specs

Scroll the page down a little, until you come to the bold heading -
EMachines Desktop Replacement Notebook Specs

Scroll down until you see the sub-heading - Detailed specs
Left-click on - Click here to See appendix for detailed specs
Now look under the bold heading - DMI, and [ BIOS ]


When you are in the BIOS Setup utility, you CANNOT use your mouse
anymore. You have to use your Keyboard.

At the top of the BIOS Setup utility you will see headings;
Main, Advanced, Security, Power, Boot, and Exit.

The BIOS Setup utility automatically opens to the Main screen.

Use the Right Arrow key, and stop on the - Boot - tab

What is listed is a Boot Order.
In the list of the Boot Order are Boot Devices.

What is at the TOP is the first boot device the laptop will boot from.

Should be;
1) CD-ROM Drive
2) Removable Devices
3) Hard Drive
4) Network

Having CD-ROM Drive at the top allows you to install a different Operating System, that the laptop did not have from the factory.

ALSO; Windows DOES NOT like to be written over, with a lesser operating system, or the SAME version of operating system.

Examples;
Trying to install Windows 98SE, on a Windows computer that has Windows XP on it.

Trying to install Windows XP, on a Windows computer that has Windows XP already on it.

Using CD-ROM Drive as the first boot device, will allow you to install what you wish.

[ Doesn't work for installing Windows XP over Windows Vista. There is a special procedure ]

If I haven't answered your question, or you have additional questions, please post in a Comment.

How do i fix ntldr is compressed on emachine press ctrl alt del to restart I stuck in this loop when I try to boot my emachine


Your Windows installation has become currupted. You may have success if you perform a Windows Repair. Alternatively you will have to format and reinstall Windows.
Obviously it would be best to perform the Windows repair, you will need to Windows installation CD.

Follow these steps to Repair Windows:
You will set your CD drive as the primary/first boot device in the BIOS.
Then insert your Microsoft Windows CD into the CD drive.
Press any key when prompted to book from CD.
The CD should execute and start up.
Now when the Blue screen appears press Enter to install Windows.
Press F8 to accept the Terms.

Now here is the Important Part:
At this blue screen you will need to press the R key to repair the selected Windows Installation.

It will look as though Windows is installing for the first time, but it is keeping all of your information.

You may want to contact a computer technician to back-up your data that you may need in case the repair is unsuccessful.

Please be sure to rate this session.

Take care!

When i turn the computer on it says windows root 32 is corrupt or missing please reinstall but i cant get it to reinstall it the install menu does not pop up


You need to re-install it using your disc not when your on Windows enable for it to install. Here are the steps to install Windows back in your system.

  1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  4. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows .
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows Setup.

I need to format my emachine hard drive. I don't have a recovery cd but i do have a xp cd


http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T5048
here you will find all drivers for your emachine ...
so ..assuming that you do not have expiriance ...I will try to explain in short how to do it ...
just insert the cd ...( be sure ya have the cd key if needed..) ...restart and press del to enter bios for to change the boot order to boot first from cd ...or ...
you can press F8 at start and choose to boot from cd and enter ...it will boot one time from cd ..and enter windows set-up..
after inspecting your computer will load primary drivers ..and ask you for the agreement press F8 again to agree...
inm this moment it will scan for previous installations and will show findings ...this is the moment that you press esc for to not repair or any ...than choose the C partition ...and see that you have D for delete it ...than enter to continue and L to confirm ...than C to create again and enter to format ....CHOOSE TO FORMAT INTO ntfs MODE...QUICK OR NORMAL ...
If you didnt format it a lot it doesnt matter too much ..but normal NTFS will take longer to do it , but it has a better efect ...from now on it will load the files ..and restart to continue the installation ..
the other partitions just format them from the windows ...by right click them ...and choose format ..from the list of commands..

Windows xp will not install


If you don't see the message on start up "Press any key to boot from cd" Then you need to change the boot order.

Start the PC and hit delete a number of times. This will take you into the bios screen. (Set up screen)

You will have a tab called "Boot Priority" or "Boot order". Make sure that CD/DVD drive has 1st priority. Save & exit & your done. Upon restart if you have a disc in the drive you will get the option to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. By default, most motherboards are set to boot from floppy & then Hard drive so in most cases you will need to enter setup & change the boot order.

CANNOT INSTALL XP HOME


Why do you revove the cd? DONT do that, just let the installation go on until it finish.
When xp restarts you will be asked if you want to start from the cd, if you do press any key, DONT press anything at all, let the system starts from the point of installation that it needs.

BTW, did you set the boot correct? boot ONE the cd/dvd, boot TWO the HDD

Good luck

Installation windows xp emachine t5082


You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!
