Your new HDD is faulty or you have not got the right driver installed/available on your windows CD - Also ensure your BIOS is up to date. Use Active@ kill disk to format the drive and if it does then likely the problem lays witour driver which you will need to get from the manufacturers website and put on a Flash drive and install before you install Windows.

Hi there! Yesterday I was installing Windows XP


Sorry to hear your having issues installing the OS.

There is two problems your facing one is the disk is so scratched that the system can not read the disk or the hard drive has bad sectors or clusters which are failing when being written to.

You have two options to fix this one is to make sure the cd is clean an or replace your hard drive.

General disk read error message tend to be from hard drive cylinder's.

I can't get into safe mode (windows won't log in). THIS is what I get: -- My Eee PC laptop crashed & I don't know exactly how to recover it. It tries to start & at the initial Windows login screen....


i suggest you should reprogram your computer because it has been corrupted due to the improper shutdowns and incomplete installations. If you dont have any cd rom then i think you neeed to buy an external cd rom or dvd rom drive. after you have set your cd rom drive, let it boot from your cd and insert the windows xp bootable system disc and continue the reprogram process.

You have two options:
1. Do a repair on the system
2. Do a reformat and install a fresh copy of the system.

But i recommend first you try option 1.

well, i hope this works, :)
Thank you..

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} .. 0xc0000005


The first thing you should do is back up the HDD, Remove the HDD from your Laptop, you find the lid that opens the HDD access slot under the laptop or ask someone who knows how. if available there are aftermarket 2.5 HD enclosures that lets you install the 2.5 in.hdd of your laptop via a usb. you can plug the usb to a desktop PC and backup your files. then reformat your hdd. reinstall the hdd to your laptop. replace your memory ram which causes the blue screen with a new ram, reinstall the OS.

Installation problem


If your running a linux install program, it should detect the HDD unless windows has forbid access to the HDD. I heard of people having trouble installing linux on machines with vista. Try to run a live cd and see if that install program will work.
