SOURCE: Install Windows XP without a CD drive

You'll need to assign the CD drive (which should show up as USB devicein BIOS or setup) as first boot device, if capable on your model/Computer. After you press power button, you should see a menu or dialog that shows something like 'press F2' or 'Delete' to enter setup. Once in setup, you should navigate thru until you find boot options or something of that nature. Select 'Boot from CD' or ' USB Device'. You should now insert your XP CD into the drive, close the tray, then choose 'Save'. It should now let you boot from the XP CD. At the first screen, you should select 'R' for repair console. It will then ask you to select an installation, type a '1' and then press the 'Enter' key. Next line will ask you to type an Administrator password. If you have one, type it, then press Enter. If no password, just tap the Enter key. Now, at the prompt, type CHKDSK C: /r as in (C: a space /r). then tap the Enter. It shoild now attempt to repair your Windows 2000 installation. When it finishes, reboot, go back into Setup and change first boot device to hard drive. Select Save and reboot LT. Have fun!

SOURCE: Repair or replace Matshita UJ-840D drive.

The region code can only be changed up to 4 times and after the 4th change it locks onto that region.
You may be able to update the firmware to make the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake then you have a piece of junk.
The best solution :-
You can install software that defeats the region code, there may be some free programs on the Internet but I use RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com it is not expensive.

SOURCE: How to Install windows XP in SONY VAIO Vista

Is it ok if your files get lost forever?  If it is then what you have to do is when it says if you want to partition a hard drive space, you delete the biggest parition (which wipes any and all vista and files of the computer.)  Then it will ask you which partition you want use.  Use the one you just deleted, whhich is the biggest one.  It will ask you to format it and stuff, just go with it.  Then you will have XP instead of Vista!  (Warning: I warned you above that this way will wipe of vista and any other files-documents-photos-everything off your comptuer)

Hi,

You're getting what's known as the 'blue screen of death' as some may call it.
This happens for various reasons, but usually occurs when Windows encounters a conflict with a hardware component in your laptop. When you try to install XP, are you doing so as a secondary operating system (dual OS boot) or are you trying to install it over Windows 7?
If you are installing XP over Windows 7, try doing a full format during setup instead of the usual quick setup. This may take some time, possibly requiring you to format the hard drive overnight but it may well solve any 'blue screen' issues you're experiencing.

Let me know if I can assist any further.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Installing Windows 8


Have you check the hardware compatibility on the Computer? There is a minimum spec requirement to run windows 8. Is it a 32 or 64 bit windows 8? The HP A720N was available for sale in Sept. 1, 2004. I doubt if it will run win 8. The Ram and Graphics are going to be a big issue. Take a look at this Min. Requirements: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/system-requirements If you can, return Win 8. Looking at your specs, I don't think you can run Win 7? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/system-requirements Perhaps Vista.

Hi,

Why are wanting to clone your hard drive to another on when all you need to do is install Windows 7 directly onto the new hard drive?
Are you wanting to save all your settings and data before you install Win 7 over the top of XP?

I bought some years ago a USB to Serial Port Cable Nexxtech. It work fine with Windows XP. But I buy a new computer and Windows7 can not read driver from the disc. What can I do?


You should look for new driver on the internet. driver for windows 7 or maybe vista, it might work. Windows XP needs different driver then windows 7.

Good luck
