Please check your setup config to be sure of the boot order. Should be CD-ROM, Hard drive, other external media source (USB). Once you have the boot sequence set, retry the windows CD.

I WANT TO FORMAT MY LOPTOP TOSHIBA NB100 MODEL NO.PLL10E-00K01TAR


First restart your Toshiba laptop. Press either "F1," "0," or "F8" to be taken to your computer's hard drive utility screen. The key command differs depending on the model Toshiba computer that you own.

Select "Restore Original Factory Image" from the list of options in System Recovery. Verify that you want to continue the process by clicking "Yes," then click "Next".

Restart the Toshiba laptop once the factory restore process has been completed. You will be prompted to enter information such as the date, time and language preferences.

Windows does not start....black screen appears


Hello :

I had this problem before . What I did to solve it ? . I took the OS CD [ windows xp or windows vista or 7 etc ] and inserted it in the CD driver .

I rebooted the system .

While the system is rebooting , I started booting from the CD .

When the computer asked me , if I want to install fresh copy of OS I agreed with it .

After that the computer will load some files from the CD .

Then It will stop to ask me again if I want to install fresh copy of OS or I want to repair the OS , I chose repairing OS ..

That's it . Just repair the OS and problem will be solved .

Please don't forget to rate !

good luck .

First thing you needs to install new windows via boot able CD.
Please do not start installing windows while running ur old windows. i mean please not upgrade ur windows to newer once.

Steps for installing fresh windows :
1. Make bootable win xp disk.
2. Insert Disk into drive and boot ur laptop with CD drive (If unable to boot then change BIOS settings)
3.Setup will automatically detect ur previous version of Windows.Just ignore it and start fresh installation and alll Done.

Install Windows xp off USB


If you are only trying to boot to windows then you'll need files NTLDR, Boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM, and NTOSKRNL.EXE on the USB drive. This will boot you to the windows screen. Trick is to get those files off of your windows CD onto your USB...then copy those over to the c:\ and that should also take care of boot problems if it was because of corrupted files.
