Question about Panasonic TOUGHBOOK CF-18 Tablet PC

2 Answers

Cf-18 Hi, I'm trying to install a new 60gb HD and do a new install of XP pro from an external USB cd drive. I keep getting NTLDR error and then ask for my password. I have tried to use my admin PW but I believe it is asking for a BIOS pw which I do not know. Any ideas? The original HD has several viruses, but still works. Just thought a new HD and clean install of XP would be the easier way out, but it is not working out this way. Thanks in advance for any help in this matter..............Tony

    Quick response to my question, although not quite sure I got the right answer. This could be all me as I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to computers. I asked another question to verify the fix.



    Thanks for the help....................Qmodelboom

Yes, you can do it. I recommend you install Ubuntu Linux. To do this you need the following: 1. Download the distribution from the site www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download 2. In paragraph 2 "Burn your CD or create a USB drive" on this page, select "I would like to create a: USB stick " 3. Follow these instructions

I think your actually having issues getting it to run on the toughbook because it uses different drivers for everything from the Acer computer. If you press F8 while booting up you can choose the option "Disable automatic restart (of system errors or something)". Then when the machine boots up you should get a blue screen giving you an error code like "IRQ_EQUAL_TO_OR_GREATER_X Error: 0x0000005f. You could try to see what the message is trying to tell you to resolve it but the error msg would likely point to the driver that its trying to load that's most likely different from the toughbook you have. I'd suggest getting an external cdrom/dvdrom and install windows from a disc onto the toughbooks hd while its in that toughbook machine.

My touchscreen dont work after re-install windows xp.


try looking on the restore discs for drivers, use the explore option after you right click the cd with disc loaded if not there then go to mfg's website and try looking under support /downloads. you didn't mention model or make, the drivers are on the website in any case. you will get most current drivers from there. hope this helps. good luck

HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.

Random windows resets


Hi I am Vortash I was wondering if you had done an independent Virus and spy ware scan at all recently .. as this to me sounds like maybe your set has picked up a post box command .. ie that's where you get someone using your computer to send either illegal or fraudulent emails .. you may even have a third party tracker but it really sounds to me like external interference .. if it was the computer I am sure it would flash an error or warning message to tell you what it had just done this sounds suspicious .
If it was mine I would save erything I wanted to a USB pen or External drive and format my drive and re-install windows ..
You do this by placing your windows CD in the drive reboot the system and when it ask's to boot from cd press any key you do so
and it will start the process then just follow the instructions it is actually really easy . when it ask's to save the old windows you say NO and it will erase it .. and when reinstalled don't use the same passwords on anything .. if you have any problems contact me again on here and I will walk you through the process ..I am here everyday at 1 pm onwards GMT . Regards Vortash UK

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
