It means that the CD has smudges or scratches on it. Try to wipe it clean with a tissue or lens cleaning towelette. If it is really bad you may need to get a professional to clean it or buy another recovery cd.

Tip

Unable to start Windows


Before we start, always check there are no USB devices/drives attached, or any discs in the cd/dvd drive.
If there are, remove them and try to boot....
Still no windows?......Read on

Depending whether you have a recovery disc, or a full version of windows, you still may be able to repair your installation.
If you have a recovery disc, and you can use it, you will restore your computer to factory fresh state, you will loose all your files/programs. (If you wish to do this you may want to save your files, to do this follow the "LIVE" linux install option (bottom of page)
If you have a windows disc (the same copy as you have installed on your computer), try this....BASED ON WINDOWS XP, JUST GOOGLE WINDOWS REAPAIR INSTALLATION + VISTA OR WINDOWS 7 FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON THOSE OS'S
  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. If repair is available.....
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact
IF the repair option is not available, and you continue to load windows, you will loose everything.

LIVE LINUX INSTALL (google "live linux distro")
IF you want to save files/documents before a recovery or clean windows install, you can download various " LIVE" Linux distrabutions.
You Burn these to a cd as a bootable ISO file ( imgburn is a free burning program that will enable you to make bootable ISO discs).
Some linux distrabutions have built in recovery tools/virus scanners.
Once you have recovered your important files, you can either carry on with the windows recovery, clean install.... OR...you may find that you like LInux, if so you can fully install the linux OS and if its not what you want, Install Windows back in.

After installation dont forget .......
1.Download and install your security programs (Anti-virus/Anti-malware)
2. download drivers from your manufacturers support page
3. turn automatic updates on

NOTE............When you are up and running, and want to transfer any saved files you may have recovered..SCAN THEM with your Anti-virus BEFORE you put them onto your nice clean PC.
All of this information is available freely on the internet, just google your relavent question.

Updated tool for restore Windows hard drive data


If the hard drive will not boot, use the Windows installation disc to repair the operating system. If that fails, install a fresh drive and install the operating system. Then attach the old drive to restore your data.

If you accidentally erased your hard drive data, you may need to purchase recovery software, or send it to a company to recover your files.

My computer keeps showing blue screens, and my software is corrupted. How can I restore my files without the WINDOWS XP CD?


The Windows XP installation CD includes an option to repair an existing Windows XP installation. Using this option allows you to reinstall Windows without losing the files, personal data and programs you already have on the system. To take advantage of it, just place the CD into your CD or DVD drive on your PC and reboot the computer. During the installation you will be prompted if you wish to use the recovery console to repair a Windows installation. The recovery console is rather limited in its use, so just press the Enter key to proceed with the installation as you would normally.

blank.gif Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.

blank.gif The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.

blank.gif This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.

Missing or corrupt hal.dll file, so can't boot the hard drive


Hey,

Please use the recovery discs or windows installation cd.

To either perform a full system restore with the recovery discs.
Or to perform a repair installation with the windows installation cd.

When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

Windows xp corrupted


This is supposed to be caused by some missing registry entries in your windows installation. Not exactly sure why this is happening. May be you have some important files that cannot be copied due to a damaged CD. Microsoft replaces the media for you so that you can try installing using the replacement. Click here for more details
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;326246
You can also try to recover the PC using recovery console. To do it follow the steps below
To complete part one, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  5. At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: md tmp
    copy c:windowssystem32configsystem c:windows mpsystem.bak
    copy c:windowssystem32configsoftware c:windows mpsoftware.bak
    copy c:windowssystem32configsam c:windows mpsam.bak

    copy c:windows epairsam c:windowssystem32configsam

Windows is booting to recovery partition How do I stop it?


you cannot stop this now that the process has started, take the hard drive out, connect it to another PC as a "slave" drive to recover any data you need to back up, reconnect it to your pc and proceed with the recovery, you should have a choice of a "non destructive recovery" which means any data stored in "my documents" should be safe, or a full recovery, meaning it formats the whole drive and re-installs the operating system to factory settings (wipes all data)

hope this helps

Erased hard drive, now nothing will load


Check to make sure that your Inspiron is set to boot from the CD-ROM drive.

It sounds like your laptop is trying to boot from the (now erased) hard drive first, finds that it can't, then stops without ever checking the CD-ROM drive for boot media.

At startup, hit F2 to go into the BIOS settings. Look for the "Boot Order" section. Make sure that your CD drive is listed first, then your hard drive.

Save your changes, and reboot with the WinXP installation CD in your drive. Now your laptop should boot from the CD and begin installation.

Good Luck!
