Using another pc, download the driver for the model of LAN card used. Goto the control panel - system - device manager and unistall the card (keep hardware attached to pc) and reboot. Use the downloaded driver to reuninstall. When it gets back online, do the same thing with any other device not working. Be sure to get the drive for the operating system used.

Had dual boot with linux, lose my XP. I have the 5 cd recovery disk, but I can not install my XP back.


  • Hello charlieri_1, this happens often when installing 'new' OS, especially when creating a "Dual Boot." What you will have to do is a "Clean Install" starting from scratch; unfortunately! You will have to use the "Recovery Disk" to install Windows XP, first! Next, after you have restore the XP [OS]; then you will install the more "Updated" OS, [Linux] "This is just the Operating System way of order; oldest first, latest last, to properly install the OS. Hope this helps you, thanks paul7of9."

Compaq SR1650NX HARD DRIVE MESSED UP RECOVERY DISK WON'T WORK REPLACED HARD DRIVE CAN'T GET BIOS TO RECONIZE HARD DRIVE SHOWS UP IN BOOT BUT NOT IN MAIN HP SAID TO INSTALL NEW OS HAD OLD 98SE LOADED WORKED...


Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

Cant reformat C:\ to re-install XP.


Install XP using a CD and start the setup from CD
when you are asked to do something on your harddisk, first you delete existing partition and create new partitions, then you do a full format.

hope this will solve your problem.

Note : Boot your system from Windows XP Installation CD / Restore CD

Replacement harddrive into acer pc


No matter what you do, you need to partiton and format the drive and install an OS, be it with the Acer recovery disks or with an original XP install disk. You will need to boot from your CD drive to install the OS, if your drive is not bootable you will need to boot from a floppy and load drivers for the CD drive. For information on how to get these boot floppies check out this Microsoft link:

IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop Os Install Impossible


You probably need an OEM version of XP...not that IBM version. If you buy an OEM version, you can use it many computers. A real XP disc will partition, format, and delete partitions on any functioning Hard drive. Don't buy a recovery disc, please. That just sounds WRONG.

A cheaper solution might be a new Hard Drive...but I don't trust your IBM version of XP.

How to reformat ibm pc


Hello Gerjoy06

Thanks for the good thoughts. :)

If yours is a Recovery or System Restore CD provided by IBM w/ that particular model computer, then, no, you will likely not need the OS CD.

I have seen some instances where the OS CD and the recovery CD were needed. So, I can't be certain w/out knowing the model and, possibly, the serial no. of that computer. Chances are, however, that you will not need the OS CD.

Please, make sure that you have backed up all of your data as the restore CD will format your hard drive as part of the System Restore process.

I also recommend that you download all the latest drivers from IBM/LENOVA for that computer and burn them all to a CD-R disc before you begin the restore process. It could save you some trouble.
