Question about Compaq iPAQ Legacy-Light PC Desktop
My PC has no CDROM so i connected a USB external CDROM. i wanted to format my PC but it does not boot from CDROM how do i doit?
So i took out the Hard drive to another PC and formated it there and installled WIndows XP it worked well to that PC but when i put it back to the Compaq PC it does not start up. so i guess the OS is not correct? but before i did anything to it it worked well with an XP version but now that i have installed a new one its not working.
Hi i as you said you have no cdrom you are using an external cdrom this may be your down fall but i shell try my best for you ok .
first start the laptop up press f2 or del to go into *********** board settings when you have done that move your arrows to the right finding your boot option go into that and remove your hard drive from that this will make your sys search for the usb or cdrom to load from then you must save this on leaving the motherboard when you leave it will say save y do that then it will restart and find your cdrom make sure that you have the windows disk in the cdrom before you start ok follow the on screen insturctions telling you to format the hard drive this will wipe the hard drive ready for installing the new windows program on it ok
the reason when you loaded the windows on the other pc and put it in your laptop is the motherboard is not the main op sys for the hard drive hope this work for you if not get back in touch and we shell try another way ok thanks all the best
