Missing Operating system means there is no Operating System on your hard drive or it has been currepted. As you have re-partitioned your HDD, the previous DOS version has gone.

Now:

  1. Goto BIOS Setup
  2. Select Boot from CD/DVD in Boot Option
  3. Save Settings and Exit from BIOS Setup
  4. Put your Windows XP Setup CD in CD/DVD drive
  5. Make re-start
  6. It will ask 'Press any Key to Boot from CD', then press any key.

Now setup will be started, just follow on-screen instruction and it will be finished after a restart till then don't remove the CD.

If any problem occurs....Just Ask me

Thanks
Iqbal

Your bought compag computer is a new one , because that error is appears only if the hard drive or the harddisk is defective or damage. Your installation of windows xp is finished totally because sometimes the error is appears because the system installation is not finished and the os system cannot read. try to re install again the windows and delete the old partitions and create again if the problem is the same even there is no error in the installation until it's finished i say that the problem is in the harddisk. Maybe the harddisk develop a bad sector in the master boot record of the hardrive

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

I want to install win Xp Sp 2 but i can't do it


you need to have internet connection first then go to the website http://www.windowsupdate.com and you need to update the operating system from that site. in the process of updating it there will be an option there to update it to service pack 2 already.. sometimes you need to update other things first in the same website before that option comes up.
