    Have you tried going into the BIOS of your PC And change the boot order to have the CD Boot first ?
    Is your CD Disk bootable ?

Could be as simple as a corrupted operating system, and as bad as a failing hard drive. As Trystam said, check BIOS settings for boot order and CD-ROM settings.

When i start my laptop it shows that error loading operating system with black screen and it cannot boot window xp cd????????????


This means that the system files are corrupt or that the system can not locate the device with the operating system on it.
Boot your laptop while pressing F2 and go to the System BIOS. In the BIOS look for boot order or boot sequence. Then select the HARD Disk Drive to be the first booting device and let the CD Drive be the second one and press F10 to save and exit. Observe the results, If it gives you an error message again, try to go back to the BIOS and load Default System settings and restart your laptop again.

If you try all this and you still have the same problem, then organize an XP CD and change the boot device to CD Drive. This will let your laptop boot from the CD. When the CD loads, press enter and after accepting the license agreement (by pressing F8) select "R" to repair your operating system.
NOTE: Do not press "R" as soon as the CD finishes loading because this will induse the Automated Repair, and that is not what we want here....
Man, this will work you out of your trouble. Good luck

I wiped my hard drive using kill disk. I have a Windows XP home disc to install the operating system, but when I boot the computer, I get the "Error loading operating system" message and it won't...


when you boot the laptop, if you don't see a message that says press any key to boot from CD, your boot order is wrong.

Check your boot order, when you see the splash screen (logo) look for a message that says press a F1-F12 key to change boot order or if that message is not displayed, press the key to enter setup.

Look for an option that list boot order and shows your hard drive, CD/DVD and USB options.

Move the CD/DVD item to the top of the list and try again.

Sounds like your Windows XP installation failed. Run the XP install again making sure to delete the existing partition and then create a new partition. You could also have a bad drive out of the box.

I WANNA INSTALL XP2 BUT MY SYSTEM SHOWS ERROR: C000022UNKNOWN HARD ERRORSYSTEMROOTSYSTEM32NTDLL.DLL


  1. This problem may occur if the file that is described in the error message is corrupted. The following files are checked for integrity when Microsoft Windows XP starts:
  2. All driver files (except those that are loaded by the system loader to start. the computer)
  3. All dynamic-link libraries (DLLs), including User, Graphics Device Interface (GDI), Shell, Kernel, Ntdll, Crtdll, and others.
  4. This problem may occur if you install an inappropriate driver for your hardware. For example, you receive one of the error messages that are described in the "Summary" section if you install a MIPS driver on an X86-based computer.

    This problem may occur if an Iomega Zip drive is on the same integrated device electronics (IDE) cable as the hard disk drive.
  5. To resolve this problem, obtain a new copy of the corrupted file or reinstall Windows XP. If you continue to receive any one of the error messages that are described in the "Summary" section after you reinstall Windows XP, a hardware problem or a network problem may exist.
  6. This error message may be displayed in many different formats, including an error message that is displayed on a blue screen or an error message that is displayed in a dialog box. The type of format that the error message is displayed in depends on how much of the operating system was loaded when the corrupted file was detected.
