Re: How to install windows xp
Here are some tips:
please open your BIOS setting for boot sequence and make sure your CD drive is indicated as a boot
BIOS must be set to boot from CD before hard drive.
That is, the CD drive should the be in the 1st boot sequence followed by the hard drive (2nd boot device). Then,try to follow the follwing steps:
1.Formatting an XP System Disk by booting from the XP CD is accomplished by loading the Recovery Console by typing R at the first window.
2. After selecting the Windows installation you want to access and typing in the Admin password [leave blank if no password was created] you will see a command prompt.
3. Type Map and press ENTER
4. Note the letter designation of the drive you want to format. [write it down]
5. type format x: /fs:fat32 then press ENTER, where x is the drive letter you want to format. Substitute NTFS or FAT if desired.
6. Type Y to confirm your selection and then type exit and press ENTER to restart computer.
7. To view other format commands, type format /? and press ENTER at the RC command prompt.

Hi, I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP. 1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer. 2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD. 3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R" Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.
If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console. 1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done press R to repair Windows XP using Recovery Console4. On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.
My first suggestion would be to clean your XP disk and make sure there are no scratches on it. Then depending on the BIOS of your machine when starting up press either F10 or F12 to enter the boot device menu there select your cd and hit enter. This should fix your problem for you
Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.
Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.
