You have a choice when reinstall you have a non-destructive or destructive,i think it speaks for itself depending on your requirements if you want to keep all your files and programs music and photos then click non-destructive doing this will just repair your operating system.

Reinstalling with formating the hard disk will not change anything. The Os with be replaced with new files. If you format and install windows, then all data will be lost and fresh version of windows will be installed.

All the files, programs saved on the same drive/partition will be lost. Make sure to save important data before you do a reinstall. After reinstalling the operating system, you can reinstall the drivers for your components, then reinstall the programs/applications you need.

My toshiba cannot boot through USB. it dispalays "windows missing" yet the flash disk has got a windows xp setup


Hi,

Your flash drive only has the setup program not the actual OS as it would be on your hard drive.

The fact that it won't boot through your USB is because there is no OS on your laptop with the required drivers for your USB and other hardware, for that.

You need to have OS installed on your hard drive to be able to run all the peripheral hardware, else nothing happens.

Please install the apropriate Operating System (OS) on your hard drive, and voila!!! magic happens after that.

Cheers, Peter

I was installing a windows updtae and my laptop locked up. I couldn't get the ntask manager to respond at all. So I turned it off, waited 5 mins then turned it back on and all I have is a blank screen...


it usually happens if the OS is not genuine, the update contains some patch that blocks the OS from starting. U have to reinstall the OS again,and make sure ur automatic update is turned off.

however if u were using a genuine windows OS this should not happen. cant figure
