How do I restart my computer from the hard drive do I press ALT and F10 or can you tell me how to set up from a XP pro boot disc


if you want to boot setup from xp pro boot disc, you have to go first to the bios/cmos setup of your system, from there check the boot order, if you find that the first boot device is your hard drive change it, make your cd/dvd rom your first boot device and second your hard drive save the setting that you have made and restart your pc, before you restart insert the installation disc, then reboot, from there it will automatically boot in the xp pro set up disc

While installing xp showing error


Hi Friend

Try this may help you in creating a dual boot.

First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive.

Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. (You don't need to change the BIOS if you have an ATA or IDE hard drive.)

Next, insert your Windows XPmag-glass_10x10.gif CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. (To do this, right click the Computer icon in start, and select manage. Then select Disk Management, and you can do whatever you want with your partition.)

Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating systemmag-glass_10x10.gif files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive.

Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component.

Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to.

And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS.

I hope this will help you out. Please vote for me.

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

No operating system - instal xp pro


With what you have done, it seems pretty cut and dry. You hard drive appears to be damaged, which is why your having problems formating/accessing it.
I would recommend running a hard drive test. If you not sure how, I would ask a local repair shop to run a quick test on the hard drive to confirm its bad. Most shop will do this test for free, if you get a hard drive through them. If you wanna go online and get your own hard drive, testing should be less than 30 bucks.

If this helps please rate my solution.

Maxstor shared Storage II 500GB


Try mapping that drive as a network share under windows XP. This is done from "MY Computer" Map network drive. The set up your backups to back up the network drive you have created. If that does not do it then there is a contention between vista and xp as to the owner of the drive. Making the drive a mapped network drive should resolve this as neither should have ownership. Thats my best quess without knowing in detail your network setup.

Can't reinstall xp pro on my hp compaq nc6320


Stephane, I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this: Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Best of luck! Bryan P.S. If you want to enable SATA native mode after you have installed XP Pro check out this link: http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1042050&admit=-682735245+1161793137260+28353475
