Hello,

You should set the first boot to redirect to the cd ROM boot.

Go to the bios setup by pressing " F2" or "DElete" and first boot.

In there find the boot sequence or boot order something like that and set it to cd rom (pls follow the screen instruction when selecting some option) . after selecting the boot order press "F10" to save and exit.

some PC you can select by pressing "F9" and the first boot and you will be directed to the boot selection automatically.

may this help:

I want to format my pc and fix xp service pack 2.how can i will be able to do this???


Hi, before you format your hard disk, make sure you have saved all important files that you like to keep on an external drive, for example a USB Stick. Formatting your hard disk will destroy all data.
If you want to format and reinstall Windows XP do the following:
Insert your Windows XP CD. Restart your computer. Your computer should then automatically start from the CD and show the Windows XP Setup.
In Windows Setup you can choose the partition on which you want to install Windows. There you can also format the partition, before installation. To do this, just follow the directions that are shown.

How to format my compaq pressario cq40 604tx laptop with xp


hi

Boot from your XP install CD and select the option to format the C:
drive. If you don't have an install CD, use the "System Restore" CD or
DVD that came with your system. These restore your system to factory
settings. There're still other ways to format your C: drive, but
without either an install CD or restore one, you'll end up with an
unusable system after formatting the C: drive.
If you use the XP install CD, you'll need to be SURE you have all the
drivers for things like your DVD/CD drive, NIC, video, audio, modem, etc.

You can't format the drive while Windows is running. Insert the CD, reboot, and follow the prompts to delete and re-add the main partition, then do a Quick format.

Uninstall xp


You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.
