You need a Windows XP installation disk and the product installation code.
When you boot up with the Windows installation CD, you will be given an option to delete the existing partition, Do this and then create a new partition, then do a NTSF format NOT a quick NTSF format then complete the installation.
After you install SP2 then install SP3, this is the latest service pack and corrects some bugs.

How do i connect my hp deskjet f380 to my hp workstation xw4100


Did you load the printer drivers? Simply connecting a printer to the machine will not get it to operate. Each printer comes with software that must be installed to get the printer to work the computer. If you need drivers, you can go to the HP website support and download them.

Hi enoonoo
Even though the product claims to be compatible with Windows and Linux, it has 1/ no drivers for any Linux system and 2/ does not work with Vista / Windows 7 .
It is useless , it will just don't work anymore .
You can always create a network , sharing all machines via a gateway . It also works between different OS versions like sharing a W7 unit with an XP one .
Best regards ,

When your computer is starting up there should be a button to specify a boot device. In most cases this will be F8, F10, F11 or F12.. make sure you watch the startup for details. Also.. keep an eye on it while it's starting up because sometimes a small message will appear saying:

"Press any key to boot from CD.."

in which case you need to quickly respond by pressing any key. This message only appears for a few seconds so make sure to watch for it!


Good luck!

I have hp workstation xw4100 changed battery then the system. system not booting


If as I suspect you changed the CMOS battery, then you will have to set up the system BIOS again to the "Default" configuration. You will have to initialize the Hard Drive, DVD, RAM, Boot Up sequence, all again. Do this and all should be OK. You access the CMOS usually by pressing DEL, or F10, at boot time. Check your manual for exact key.

Where is Linux mbr file


There's nothing like the Linux MBR File. The option to boot to multiple operating systems is controlled by a software called as the "Boot-Loader".
Windows XP and Linux both have their versions of boot-loaders. The Bootloader that Windows XP uses is called the NTLDR, whereas Linux provides many bootloaders (prominent among them being "Grub" and "LILO").

>but Linux is shown in the manage option from the My Computer in Win XP 2.....
That is the control section of NTLDR. So from what I understand you shouldn't have a problem selecting the operating systems.

If you want the Linux bootloader taking control of the boot process, you can always install it.
All you need is a Linux CD and then run the setup for "Grub" or "LILO".

Information about installing Grub or LILO can be found easily on the internet.
